    Kenteth, where are your foot notes? How did you come up with that gravity, grain ratio, fermetability, color, IBU ball park, & flavor hops?

    footnotes? Most of the information existing on this beer is included in my first post of this thread.... A lot of assumptions, inferences and just plain old wild-ass guesses based on experience went in to the formulation of the recipe... Randy Mosher (who apparently read all the same old books that I did) suggests an IBU of 40, but I think he is on the low end.

    There would have been some significant regional variations in this kind of beer, (that's what Pops told me anyway... :-w ) but based on what little information I have, I should be fairly close

    Finally.... at long last.....
    It is brewed.
    This was one of the best smelling mashes ever!
    I would recommend some rice hulls or something.... draining the tun was very slow....
    All in all.... the perfect way to spend a Columbus day holiday!

    color is just a tad darker than predicted.... maybe 26 or 27 SRM
    Gravity was also a tad higher 1.068... but I also had just a little less volume post boil, not a lot less, but a little

    Color is very dark brown .... way more roasted character than I expected ... well balanced .. almost on line with a real brown porter ... but so rich ... even warm and flat this beer is spectacular .... my kind of beer

    if you didnt take a second sample how can you be certain the first was accurate? Always take two samples.
