    OFFICIAL Kate the Great Russian Imperial Stout Clone

    It's a thick beer so 1.040 doesn't seem too unlikely. Darklord finishes around there and the two are similar in body from what I remember.

    OFFICIAL Kate the Great Russian Imperial Stout Clone

    Smuttynose Imperial Stout is nothing at all like Kate, though my understanding is the regular Portsmouth lineup is pretty similar to the Smuttynose beers.

    OFFICIAL Kate the Great Russian Imperial Stout Clone

    Let the cubes absorb the port and then drop the cubes in.

    OFFICIAL Kate the Great Russian Imperial Stout Clone

    It is, and it provides a huge amount of flavor to the beer. The stuff they soak the spirals in is local and I've never tasted anything like it.

    Is this a drinkable recipe?

    The aromatic may come through a little but the Special B probably won't stand out. If you think you need more than what you have from the Crystal and Vienna then I would switch to a darker base malt will help (go to Maris Otter, Golden Promise, or Pale Ale malt.)

    Is this a drinkable recipe?

    The only thing I don't get is the inclusion of Special B and Aromatic... what are you going for with adding those? (Not saying it will taste bad, just curious why.)

    Simcoe and Amarillo in the boil (equal blend for each addition) then a blend of Simcoe, Amarillo and Citra for the dry hop.

    Is it too early to start talking about 11-11-11?

    So brew the Old Ale without Brett. I don't like Brett and that is what I would be doing.

    Is it too early to start talking about 11-11-11?

    I can go through my notes tonight and see if I can find a good grist for a historical old ale.

    Cafe Orzo "The Italian Caffeine Free Alternative"

    Could you add it to a muslin tea bag in the mash?

    Is it too early to start talking about 11-11-11?

    I could brew a wee heavy for this.

    centennial and simcoe to add to the amarillo and ahtanum.

    5 hour Energy

    5 Hour Energy is mostly vitamin B and flavoring. I doubt it would have much effect at all.

    Need help diagnosing a 1 dimensional IPA

    I find SN Harvest to be a bit one dimensional in the hop department. I'm going to stick with it being the hops.

    Need help diagnosing a 1 dimensional IPA

    I agree, I don't think using those two hops together works for depth of flavor. I like pairing them with Amarillo personally, similar enough to not clash but just a tad bit sharper in the flavor that helps it stand out.

    Advice on using honey malt

    The D.P. of Honey Malt is 50. Just because it can be used as a base malt doesn't mean it should ;-) Maybe I should do a 1 gallon Honey Malt SMaSH.

    Advice on using honey malt

    I treat Honey Malt like a Crystal Malt. I try to keep my total Crystal and Honey (combined, not each) under 10% for most beers, some beers can use more but it is a sweet malt so be careful.

    First Recipe...Opinions?

    Pale Ale Malt is a base malt (like an American Marris Otter) and while it is a GREAT grain for an IPA it needs to be mashed and a 1/2# would not make that much of a difference. If you want to use some Pale Ale malt I would go this route: 6# Extra light DME (I like Briess Golden Light) 2# Briess...
