lol, i have beersmith! but i'm a newer brewer (1 year) and haven't done anything like this.

beersmith also does crazy things, like, when i just increase boil time from 60 to 90 (even tho I keep the hop additions at 60) it increases IBUs.

there's also some inconsistencies with the "adjust mash" tool and the mash profile....

thanks!

so, wait, is it "black malt" or "black barley"?

BMW has Briess Black Barley, the description reads:

Black Barley contributes a dryness to the Stout or Porter. It is not interchangeable with Black Malt. Black Malt may be used in conjunction with Black Barley to achieve the desired color.
they also have Crisp Black Malt. i'm confused....

Crisp, Briess, Rahr, Great Northern, etc. are brands. They are the name of the malter (maltster, malt-guys, ?? ).

Buy the Crisp - it'll be great.

Sorry, I forgot the recipe.

The first word is the brand: buy the black barley, don't worry about the brand.

Just read this whole thread, and I am now looking forward to brewing this on January 15th. I am a little surprised, but no one has asked the Liquid yeast question yet. I am teetering between WLP001 and WLP007. Both have a high attentuation rate and are tolerant to high alcohol volumes. Right now I am leaning more towards the 007 as I think that with the appropriate starter, it'll do a better job as it is a more intended yeast for this style. Comments?

Either would work, for sure. As you said make a big starter.

When I have compared yeasts like US-05 and WLP001, the WL yeast was fruitier. The WLP007 may be a better choice.

Keep in mind, both WLP001 and 007 will create a different flavor profile than US-05.

brewed today. did a parti-gyle, went pretty well. Imp ended up about 1.110, small beer was around 1.040.

only screwup was i added 2.18oz warrior (17%) at 90 instead of 60.

doughed in a bit cold, 155F, but i added some boiling water. that got me to 157F.

Well, after 10 days its at 1.032. I'm sure it'll tick down a few more points in the next few weeks. It's really good right now, albeit a bit bitter. Still going to age for about 9 months before I keg.
