    Imperial Stout

    Hi all, I've had my Imperial Stout sitting in secondary for the last two months and am thinking of racking it off and bottling it so it's ready for the start of winter. It's clearly a fairly high ABV and I'm wondering if I'll need to add in some additional yeast prior to bottling. Would...

They then freeze the champagne in the neck of the bottle...

    I'm mashing!

    Blighty, What kit have you got for your all grain brewery and where did you get it from ? I'm mulling over making the move from extract brewing up to all grain and probably from a standard 5g batch up to a 10g batch. I guess I need an HLT / Boiler, a mash tun and a big fermenter - although...
