    I still have half a corny full of this from last November. Savouring it, never have more than one pint at a time :drink:

    I've had this with all dark/stout type brews I've done to date. Not so much an issue with my lighter coloured (pale & red) ales etc. In fact, I have a lager on now that's just ticking over at 12'c :thumb:

    I now have about a 1/3 of a corny left of Black Sabbath, aged 6 months+, and it tastes quite smoky to me now. Still delicious though :drink:

    So checked this today it's gone from 1066 to 1028 started on weds so that's 5 days. The krausen has died back and seems to be very little activity at all. How long would you leave it before thinking about re pitching. If you did re pitch would you use the same yeast or go for Us-05?

    I am sure it will almost certainly finish so i think all you need is some patience. I know how you feel though. Wheat beer yeast is very aggressive, buckled the lid of my fermentor before. Normally takes 2 weeks to finish. Never had to repitch before apart from my Mead. Good luck :thumb:

    I've done this twice. First didn't go past 1020. Then had 2 bottle bombs go off and the rest I binned as everytime I opened one it went everywhere. 2nd time went to about 1014 I think so I kegged it to be on safe side. Tastes very good but I've not had it finish off properly yet that yeast. I'll be trying again though as its a really nice beer when it's ready.

    I always give my beers two weeks anyway but it just seems strange to me that it has gone from crazy activity to what looks like none at all

    Oh aye, I was going to see if anyone wanted to split the postage cost on a few sachets of the Mauribrew Weiss wasn't I? You still interested MQ?

    I've had my head turned by liquid yeast and Beercat's idea of using WLP300 seems a like a cracking idea, which I might copy, If I ever get around to doing this beer

    It's trueblue's fault he's convinced me that 'splashing out' on liquid yeast isn't really that expensive (especially if you split a vial).

    How long did you condition for. Seeing as though its a stout and taking the OG into accout, it looks like a 3 monther?

    Think I kegged mine about 2 1/2 month ago. Tasted very good pretty much week after doing so. But have done it for a party this weekend. That. A keg of bitter and a mega hoppy American pale ale in a corny.

    Haha. Not used my corny before so it's a bit of an experiment this one. Having had a sample after a day. It's carbing up ok and tastes lovely. There's about 150g mix of Amarillo cascade and simcoe in it. Then dry hopped with 50g of each. It stinks of hops. Which is a good thing and tastes very good.

    Hi Clibit please forgive me for this stupid question but i want very much to make this stout as one of my first brews, and 10lt seems a right amount for one of my 1st AG goes. So could you tell me what the mash and prevail volumes where.
    Really look forward to tasting this.
