Yep, I upped the IBU's to 100. Good change.

Yes on the mash temp. I was after a huge body, and this beer has it.

I think 6 months to a year is when this beer really comes of age.

thanks for the info. i'm still scared to mash a 1.113 beer at 158, lol. maybe i'll pitch 3 packs of US-05....

another q for you, as I've never done a beer this big:

what's your strike volume and sparge volumes? at 1.5 qt/lb, that's 9 gallons of mash water....

Yep. It may not hurt to drop to 156, but you will need balance for the higher alcohol.

Last time I brewed this, I ran-off 9 gallons of wort for boil, then made a porter from additional runnings/sparge water.

ok, so 9 gallons strike, probably ~3.5 gallons grain absorption (.15 gallons per pound), leaves another 5.5 for a batch sparge. that sound right? or do you do a no-sparge for this and dough in pretty thin? The thinnest i could do would be around 2 qt/lb (58 quart cooler)

when you do the parigyle, do you leave the mash sit until the stout's done boiling or do you do it simultaneously? what kind of OG did you get on the porter?

No partigyle... two sparges, both small: I split it in half, and did half the sparge at a time.

I lost my notes on the porter... It was OK, not great.

hm, I'm pretty confused as to what you just said. so you made this 1.113 RIS then made something else by doing what?

anyway, i think I might parti-gyle this.

thanks.

Mash, then sparge (batch sparge - dump the water in the drained mash tun). I just dumped half the water, drained it, then the other half.

ah, ok. sorry to get sidetracked.

i think i'll dough in with ~11 gallons, should give me 7.5 gal of RIS wort.

then add enough sparge water to get me another 7 gallons of wort and boil that as a smaller beer. right? i've never done any of this, lol.....

did you go to 2.5oz of 15% warrior or 3oz?

you're probably sick of me by now, but let me ask this:

what is your strike water volume, run-off volume, and run-off gravity?

thanks! i'll try and pay you back for my nagging by sending you a few.

mash with 31 qts of water, sparge #1 with 10qts, sparge #2 with 10 qts.

I ran-off 9 gallons, but have no idea of the pre-boil gravity. I boiled for 90 minutes, adding 2.5oz warrior for 60 minutes.

You need Beersmith!
