Mashed using 1.5qt/lb @ 152 for 60min:

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.
Did you ever get a good chance to sample this recipe through lines that did not have your birch beer How long would you recommend letting this bottle condition before it is realy ready to drink?

I will be doing a 1 gallon batch of this soon. I'm subbing the Newport with Sorachi Ace because thats the closest thing I could get at the time. I'm using all organic grains except the black malt.

This beer seems to fit in the Strong/Old Ale (19A) style according to the BJCP.

This looks really good, I think I'm going to brew it this weekend. My LHDS doesn't have Newport so I think I'm going to use Chinook instead for bittering. That oughta work okay right? Also, anyone else have some tasting notes on this beer? Thanks!

Started this today, all grain recipe. OG was 1.082. We pitched one rehydrated packet of S-04, then I saw you recommend 2 packets of S-05. Can anyone tell me the alcohol tolerance of S-04?

I'm pretty sure S-04 is more alcohol tolerant than S-05, but I could be mistaken. Depending on the fermentation temp, 04 should be a bit more estery and in my opinion would go better with this beer.
