Sublimely Self Concious

Recommended Posts

Today I brewed the biggest beer to date, and loved every smelling minute of it.  I had to boil longer than anticipated but my evil twin and a mate came by near the end to help with the cleanup (and BBQ and drink lots of beers).

Can't wait to see how this one ends up.

Here's what I ended up using.....as of now I plan on doing the Levitation next week if things go well.

I actually ended up with 5 gallons instead of 5.5 but not too shabby I guess.

That looks like a very straight forward grain bill, I would have thought it would have been more complicated. I think I see this one coming up in the near future based on your recipe. How long do you plan on letting this one sit in fermenters? In bottles? Looks like a few people are doing some Stone clones of late, is that due to timing, to have them ready for the dark, cool months?

Cheers

I'm going to follow my usual 3 weeks in the fermenter than a week in the keg and another week or so in the kegerator before trying it.  As with all hoppy beers, I want to enjoy this one young.

Looks great Paul....I just finished the last bottle of the four pack of Stones version of this last night.  It was pretty good.  Let me know how this compares to your black IPA that you did.

I had a bomber of the SSSR last week and I didn't think it was anywhere near my Black (either my CDA or my latest one I did similar to yours).  It was, like all Stone beers, a breed to itself.

I've got to get back to brewing something a little more sessionable as these big beers make me dizzy!  <rolls eyes>

Funny you say that - as since I arrived at SWMBO place in MD - I have been working on beers under 6% as that is what she prefers especiallly with only one month remaining before the Ironman - but I need to start on some bigger beers that I can let sit for a while and maybe forget about them until winter. So keep throwing out the recipes for the biggies :)

Cheers
