Mine's about 3 weeks now in the secondary (keg) sitting in the 45 degree garage.

I think I'll leave it there through March and then force carb and bottle (half 22 Oz and half 12 Oz). I'm more confident in the BMBF for retained carbonation than priming a long-aged, big beer like that.

Of course, I'l need to crack one open and test before shipping date arrives.

Is it ok to force carbonate, bottle, then age? How much carbonation for this beer?

Thanks

Yo. Most of what I've seen says 1.4-2.0 vols of CO2 are appropriate. I'm using priming sugar for mine, but I am targeting about 1.6 vols for my unflavored, and about 1.9 vols for my Raspberry flavored.

Is it too late for me to join this party? When the thread started I was.... occupied. I got my 888 in aging carboy at the moment.

Yep, you're one of the first ones on the list. I can move you to the bottom, if you want to feel extra special?

I bottled almost all of mine in 22, but I bottled a sixer of 12's. Well I opend up one of them the other day. All I can say is that's a mighty fine beer. Very, very nice.

REMINDER:

Registration for this swap, as well as removing yourself, needs to be done by this Friday, 2/28/08. Registration will be CLOSED after that date, as I need to wrangle all this data into the spreadsheet.

ALL SWAPPERS, please send me a PM with your name, address, city, state, and email address.


I have rcvd addresses from Brewsmith and Korndog.

I look forward to this, folks, it sounds like we have some damn good beers ready for each other! As the timeline says, I'll have lists out to you all by 4/1/08 - probably much sooner, but life has been busy lately, that's why I left some lee-way on my part too. Any ?'s, check the swap post, or PM me. Cheers!

(Another reminder, I don't know how many of you saw the minor change last month: "Each swapper send (2-22oz 'bombers') or (4-12oz bottles), at least two bottles of which should be your 08-08-08 RIS. If you choose 22's, you've satisfied the requirement. If you use 12's, then you have two more bottles to include, which can be any homebrew of your discretion, including more RIS. Of course, please tell your recipient what the other two bottles contain.")

Signed up. FWIW I will be moving from 04-26 out to about 05-15-08. I am perfectly content to have my incoming brew arrive at the new place so I don't have to move it with the rest of my stuff. Or not. If it is a big hassle for you to ship stuff just ship mine the same day as everyone else's.
