Brewed this today with some tweaks. Some I don't even remember why I changed it, but I'm sure I had reasons.

Mashed using 1.5qt/lb @ 152 for 60min:
13lb 10oz Marris Otter
13oz C60
2oz Simpson's black malt
2oz Simpson's choc malt

90min boil:
1oz Northern Brewer hops 8.9% @ 60min
2oz Willamette 4.4% @ 25min
2oz Willamette 4.4% @ 10min
2oz Willamette 4.4% @ 5min

OG 1.084. I bought a pound of willamette months ago and I have no plans to use it in any upcoming beers so I decided to polish it off in this one. IBU's got a bump on this one, although I must have changed what IBU formula I'm using in beersmith since I first posted this recipe. Beersmith shows that this had 58 IBU the first time I made it, and 69 IBU this time.

I jumped the gun and made a yeast starter with White Labs London Ale before I knew which beer I was brewing, so I'll English-ify this and see how it turns out. Looks great!

I'm sure it will be good, the batch I brewed on 10/03/09 is not currently enjoyable because I tainted a keg and a tapline with birch beer. I have replaced the tap line and the beer ball lock connector. I will replace the o-rings in the keg and possibly the o-ring on the perlick. Lesson learned: don't put soda through your beer kegging system. PITA.

Brewed this one today!
I came up way short on the OG @ 1.070. My boil off rate was much lower than expected, and I think I forgot a pound or two of grain.
But it tasted great! I cant wait to tap this bad boy right around christmas...

Kegged today! Tasted very good. FG was 1.016, giving me a 7.1% ABV beer! Going to definitely make a nice winter warmer in a couple of weeks...

I just finished brewing this recipe tonight. The main differences were, 7# of domestic 2-row and 5# of Bries light DME. I also bumped all the grains up to whole numbers. I am using 1056 with a starter. This is only my 3rd partial grain and I don't think I got the boil off quite right, but right now my OG is looking like 1.076 or so. I am pretty excited on this batch, I'll let you know how it turns out!

I brewed this a few months ago and it turned out to be the best beer I've made yet. I'll definitely be brewing this one a few times a year. thanks

What boil volume are you starting with to finish a 90-minute boil at 5.5gallons?
