    Help me.

    I know 25% alcohol tolerance for wlp 099. However, it brewed an Imperial Stout of 20 liters, which was an og 1.138. Ten days later the FG was 1.082. Of course, I made a four-liter starter. Is the fermentation speed slow at 099? I plan to add one more 099 . What do you think?

    Coconut , cinnamon

    Recently I brewed OG 1.138 , 20 liters of Imperial Stout. After the fermentation is over, I'm going to put a toasted coconut and a cinnamon stick in here. I'm going to put 800 grams of toasted coconut and 4 sticks of cinnamon. Is that too much? Have a nice day :)

    Greetings from Italy What yeast do you recommend for a very complex and malty Imperial Stout of 12% ABV? I'm uncertain especially between WLP 002, 028, 090 or 007. What are the differences in flavor of these yeasts? Thanks

    T H I C C Stout recipe?

    I haven't brewed anything new/solo in quite awhile. Used to brew with a neighbor, but he's off the sauce now. We brewed lots of IPAs/APAs, and never ventured too big. Looking for an all grain stout recipe that will be 12% plus & thick. Something that will stand up to possible adjuncts. Cheers!
