Cool!

I just ordered grains from Brewmaster's Warehouse to build another batch... boy this ages nicely! It was a great beer with 4 months aging, but it's really smooth now.

You will enjoy it!

This will beat the 10-50... I am a real RIS fan, and this is the biggest one I have ever had, bar none.

My next batch get's mashed on Sunday . I am subbing Zeus and Fuggles, as I don't have any W's for hops... maybe I'll have to change the name.

Question for anyone who brewed this.

I'm fermenting in one of those 7.9 gallons bucket.

Will I need a blow-off tube if I'll be fermenting between 5.5 and 6 gallons of this, or should I be fine with my airlocked-lid ?

Thanks.

That kind of headspace should be fine.

I ferment in a 5-gal carboy, and it needs a blowoff tube... violent yeasties having sugar orgy!

phew.

That's a lot of work brewing a beer this big.

Got 11 gallons splitted amongst three 5-gallons SS brew pots.

4 hour boil later I got 5.5 gallons of 1.117 gravity wort in my bucket

I don't have any blowoff tube, so I tried sitting my bucket in a double garbage bag, with another one taped on top with a couple of air holes in it.

I know... it's ghetto and probably won't contain any spill off that might happen, but I guess it beats a kick to the face.
