The recipe says 60 min boil, but has anyone tried or recommend taking the boil a bit longer to 75 mins or maybe even 120 mins? I've heard with bigger beers like barleywines and imperial stouts people prefer to do longer boils cause its supposed to develop more complex caramelization, and more of a rich character.
Heidi Gray on Jul 2, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Heidi, exactly right increase boiling time to increase complexity. Downside: longer brew day, more energy cost. Recall that the evaporation rate is approximately one gallon per hour, so increase your sparge water volume by one gallon, which will also increase the efficiency of the sparge.
Any suggestions on mash time, 60 minutes? 90 minutes?
Rick Hausauer on Aug 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Rick,
I did a 60 minute mash. However I normally do a pretty slow spare which has helped my starting gravity quite a bit. Also, you may consider adding air to your wort just prior to pitching your yeast. This has helped my attenuation greatly. Good luck and have fun.

Amazing Stout
I have brew this beer many times. I love the heavy Imperial Stout. I have several times infused other flavors into this beer. The last time I juiced up pomegranate and added it to a secondary ferment to experiment.

Awesome Stout
Brewed this up a month or so ago...it's conditioning in the keg now, plan is to not tap it until this winter... we'll see how long that lasts. The beer tasted phenomenal when it was transferred to the keg...I've brewed a lot of Morebeer's all grain kits and they always come out awesome !!!

Great Beer
I've bought this recipe 3 times now. It's a great beer to build on. I've done barrel aged with 2 of them and I'm now doing a Mexican Hot Chocolate.

Delicious robust flavor, gets better with age!
This is a really nice beer! Best to let it age for a few months (goes without saying, I know). Try putting it on oak chunks that have been soaked in bourbon for an extra treat!

This was my first all grain batch and it came out amazing. This is a fantastic recipe. Highly recommended. I used Wyeast (British) - 1098

Fantastic Beer
I tried this beer 1-month after brewing it and I thought it was a dumper. I pulled it off the tap rotation and left it in the corner to age for 6-months. After 6-months I was shocked at how much this beer improved. Roasty, malty, dark fruits with very little alcohol bite. Everyone who tries this beer can't believe how good it is. Definitely buy this kit and age it for at least 6-months before drinking. 12-months would be even better. This beer will now be in my regular rotation.

Very Well Balanced
Great Recipe. I will brew this one again. This beer is huge. It has a big grain bill, making it a great value. Be patient and condition this one.
