Right on, this one was definitely a tasty brew...although there is quite a kick to it! Let me know how yours turns out. Cheers!

Will do. I need to get some bulk maris otter in so these tasty imperial brews I'm getting into don't cost so damn much to brew :P The russian imperial stout I made last weekend cost a ton but damn it'll be worth it!

Mmmm, that RIS sounds nice for the fall and winter. What recipe did you use?

It was the first imperial Ive done and Im getting hooked, a recipe from a guy in my brew club I'll get that and post it if he's cool with it (not sure why hew ouldnt). Ended up with extra volume to boil down and add later.

3. No Mash out
4. Add FWH to boil kettle
5. Vorlauf and drain first runnings (start burner at this point)
6. Batch sparge with 5 gallons of 175F water...sparge with more water as necessary to collect 7.5-8.0 gallons of wort.

Next up for me is an IIPA kinda similar to this, and I have a question for you. Why do you recommend not mashing out? What does that do / not do to the final product?

It basically extends the length of the mash to include your sparge time. By mashing longer you ensure that conversion is complete, and it also tends to help lower your final gravity.

1# of CaraPils would do the trick. I just wanted something in there for some body and head retention while not affecting the flavor. I have a ton of bulk white wheat malt which is why I use it frequently in place of CaraPils.

Cool. I'm going to be buying a pallet of grain soon (may start carrying kits! I know kits arent very big for ag brewers due to efficiency and personal recipe creation..but still) and am looking forward to having maris otter in there so I dont spend like 90 bucks like I did last weekend forthat RIS..lol and the Rogue Imperial Stout I drank while BREWING it was another $14....$14 well spent (worth the kickass botle).
