I plan on making this again, following the recipe exactly, but adding some bourbon barrel char in secondary. I am unsure of its potency yet, so I am unsure how much I will add, but I am going for a modest amount, not overpowering. Anyone else done this or something like this?

The bourbon barrel char I will be using is actually chunks of wood 1/4 - 1/2" in size scraped off the inside of real barrels, no extract or anything.

My "ToeJam" version (extract with grains steeped in pantyhose) has come out great. OG was 1.072 and FG was 1.021 and now in the bottles for 3 weeks. We tried a couple and tastes smokey with subtle coffee and chocolate notes. Very dark but clear. The head was small but lasted throughout the glass and left a nice lace behind. It can only get better. I am saving it for the the big Balloon Fiesta in Oct. Should be wonderful by then. (I hope I can leave it alone that long ... patience is not one of my strong suits.)

Mine will be going into the bottles in the next few days, I can not wait until it is ready to try.

Had some issues brewing this one, but It will be brewed again for sure.

On the recipe, do you add the 8oz. of malto dextrin at 20 minutes into the boil or left in the boil?

And I am guessing the northern brewer and cascade hops both stay in the boil for the full hour?

Has this brew typically been ready to bottle in 2 weeks, or does it noticeably improve if bulk conditioned in a secondary?

Has anyone made this recipe using Wyeast 1098 in place of the nottingham. I know wyeast is less attenuative, and it may come out WAY too sweet with the MD also, so I should prob stick with the notty.

IXVOLT, I found a HUGE difference in the bottle turnaround when I went to a 3 week primary vs a 2 week primary for whatever reason.

I would stick with Notty.

Just tapped my second keg yesterday. Perfect!

The only change I had made was to use MO as my base. Also, my hydrometer broke that day so I didn't get an OG reading. But my 4 brews leading up to it had gotten 92% eff, and I had forgotten to reset BeerSmith from 75%, so I think I ended up with an OG around 1.085. My FG was 1.021 and I'm fairly certain I didn't have a stuck fermentation.
SO... back to my question (yes, I did have one). Is this supposed to be a sweet porter? I've never used malto dextrine before and am wondering if the sweetness could be a result of that. I realise that with a FG of 1.021 it'll be sweet regardless, but this, as I said, is just not pleasant. I'm hoping some extra vols will ease that up somewhat, but if you have any ideas I'd love to hear em. Thanks!

EDIT: I don't know if it's an aging thing too, but it's been 9 weeks since brewday.
Perhaps past due, but I figure I should give an update. This came out great!! I ended up bringing it to a new year's eve party and we had it floating by 3am. Took a couple months but everything came together flavor wise very nicely. In fact, me and three other club member are brewing this up for our club's holiday party as a comparison. We'll be keeping the gravity high, at 1.085 again, because I like how that worked out
