Brewed today. OG was a bit higher than the recipe says at 1.105 instead of 1.090. It smells really good. Hopefully it turns out good.

that yeast profile says "One packet is enough for a beer of 1.050 or less. If you brewed a higher gravity beer you may need to pitch more. " Did you make your starter?

I checked an online calculator and ended up pitching 2 packets. I kind of made a starter. Info online was conflicting as to whether or not to do so. All I did was boil water with a little bit of DME, let it cool to about 80 degrees, stirred in the yeast, and let it sit until I was ready to pitch it. Seemed to work well as it started fermenting pretty violently after only a couple hours.

Sounds like you have a pretty good idea what you are going. Do you do extract kits, or full grain?

I do extract. Haven't done kits in a while because I think it's more fun to find recipes. I don't have an all grain set up at this point. Maybe someday.

1.033 today. I was hoping it would be a bit lower than that. We'll see where it's at tomorrow.

Haha I actually tried it and it wasn't bad. Less sweet than I expected for that gravity. I decided to put cocoa nibs in secondary so I went to get those today and roasted them for a bit in the oven. I'll hopefully transfer to secondary tomorrow.

It's seems to have settled out at 1.032. Transferred to secondary and added the cocoa nibs. Smells pretty good, I think it will taste good when it's all done. I'm going for more of a dessert-y flavor.

I have not. It was at a bar near me a while back when they did a Stone Tap Takeover and I was going to get it but went with something else. I assume my beer will be better.

Might make this on Sunday: http://www.brewersfriend.com/homebrew/r ... lack-ipa-1
I'll research other recipes but I've been wanting to make a black IPA.

As for the porter I made, I've had a couple of them. It wasn't really ready for Christmas but after a few more weeks it had a lot better carbonation. I think if I do it again I would do less of the cocoa nibs in secondary (or maybe none at all) as the chocolate/cocoa flavor is bit more than I wanted. Overall, I think it turned out pretty good. We'll see if the cocoa flavor settles down a bit as it ages more. Live and learn.

Save a porter for me.

Black IPA eh? I don't think I've had one of those.

I have tylersucks $35 a couple months back to split a brew. We still haven't done it and I don't even remember the style. He also said he might do it this weekend without me. I gave him my blessing to do so. He wants to keg half and bottle half, but that's a PITA it seems without a beer bottling gun that connects to the keg after force carbonation.

Cascadian dark ale is another name for a black IPA. Surly had a collaboration beer with Real Ale and Three Floyd's called Blakkr which was a black IPA. They've had it available every spring for the past few years and its one of.my favorites but I haven't seen that it's coming back any more so I wanted to make one myself.
