Prolly cause I was Drunk when I converted it?

That is where Beersmith puts it for proper bitterness. I would think you're better off (and More Cost effective) to use a higher AA hop, and maybe a bigger boil to get better useage of the hop. That was converted for a 2 gallon boil.

10:20pm, and I decide to bottle ;(
I ended up with 45 bottles of the best stout I've ever made. The room temp sample tastes like I over did the coffee (Even though that was the intent) Once in the freezer for 20 minutes, the coffee is a bit less overpowering, and more of what I was aiming for. Also, this beer is really intended to sit for another 3 months or 15 months (If I can keep out) so the fact that it's even good is a sure sign of great things to come. I wish I could give each of you one.

yeah congrats on the beer i have mine in the primary right now hopefully it comes out as good as yours. I also made this my first AG and i surprisingly hit the SG right on.

How long to you recommend for secondary if i want to be drinking this around Christmas time. This weekend will be one week in the primary i was planning on leaving it for one more the racking onto coffee. Do you think 3 weeks for the secondary is too short. Because 3 weeks would give me 3-4 weeks of bottle conditioning

Mine was in Primary for 7 days, and secondary for 40 days. HOWEVER, I don't think the secondary is such a big deal. This beer is so well mannered, I think you could go 2 weeks primary, add coffee at bottling and be drinking a 60% or 70% beer in about 2 months. The extra month is just going to be better, and I'm trying to stash some for NEXT Christmas!

I added some in one of my secondarys almost like dry hopping and let me tell you what if you want more coffee give it a try. This stuff is like jet fuel. After about 1 month it finally toned down a little.
