Hmmm... I must have my pressure set too low cause I don't have any head like ya'lls pics...
It does taste great though!

Brewing this up tomorrow.

My brew system is only supposed to be able to handle around 12 pounds of grain or so so i took a pound of pale off and reduced the nothern hops to .75 oz to keep the beer slightly malty as it should be.

It will be a 6% abv but i like beers around that range anyway

Brewed this up yesterday, 1st solo all grain batch on a new system but despite all that it went well! ended up with right around 5.5g in carboy of 1.062 wort so I was pleased!

But 13 hours after pitching now with no activity at all. I think I did not rehydrate the notty properly so I am off now to the LHBS to pick up another pack to re-pitch. Hope it turns out, gravity sample tasted promising!!!

Thanks for the recipe and my first real brew

Well re-pitched another pack of properly hydrated notty this time at 2:00, had activity within 3 hours this time! Just checked it 12 hours later and had filled the airlock! Had to play with the blow off tube a bit but I think its gonna turn out great!!

Brewed this on Saturday, ended up with a little under 5 gallons of 1.070 wort (my boiloff rate is higher than i thought i think) which after the malto dextrin comes out to 1.066.

Took a hydrometer reading yesterday and it is down to 1.020 so around 1.016, almost 7 percent

Smell has strong coffee and phenol (still young and hot so i expect that to dissipate). Taste is also hot but wow this is good!

Going to keep it in primary for another week and then transfer to secondary for 2 weeks before chiling and carbing.

I think this will be my sit by the fire at night beer.

Nicely done. This beer is big and will age well.
