    Mr. Lothos, I must say that I am impressed by your interest and dedication to the hobby /addiction. I see that you are making 6.5 gallon batches on a system that could handle 10 gallon batches with no problems. I also see that you are using way too many yeast packs for a brewer of your accomplishments. Have you thought of making yeast starters for your brews? Let me know if you have questions on either one of these fronts. Good job on the recipe. What program are you running for brew software?

    ah, another yeast blend! i really like the complexity that blends cane bring to the beer. I do a blend on my Wicked Angel recipe. It's substantially better that way than with either of the two yeast alone. Independantly the recipe is ends up too generic.

    see with this one i would brew 12 gal and split the batch in 1/2 and use 2.0 ea WYeast 1318 London Ale III in 1 batch
    and 4.0 ea Danstar 3767 Nottingham in the other
    and get 2 different stouts in 1 brew day

    then you blend it?

    I've thought about doing a split fermentation on the Wicked Angel, but wasn't sure about how the blended product would compare against the two yeast fermentation.

    Have you tried it both ways? how do they compare?

    This looks like a very tasty beer. I need to do a stout soon to age for next winter. How does this beer hold up on a long age bulk and bottles?

    I don't think he blends it. He just makes two different RIS with one boil and 2 fermenters.
    There's no starting point. It's just a massive sea of shit to wade through until you find the occasional corn kernel. -DrCurly
