I was pondering a low-end (1.080 OG-ish) imperial stout, which would make it about 7-8%, using Cinnamon as an addition instead of that godawful star anise. I reckon it would work...

... so much that I'm planning to do that next once I free up a carboy. I figure 4 full carboys is enough :D


What about Sassafras and Vanilla to give a rootbeer like flavor ?

Well if it takes off well I'll wash it and keep it, just in case it tastes awesome :D

But now i need to order new Irish for a red I was planning...


Hello Gil,
I see your Stout started bubbling - good for you. I have some 1084 in mason jars at home. I'll be in Charlotte County on Sat and Sun (at least I think that's where you are). It's been cultured 3 times with Reds and Stouts all around 1.050 OG. I could give you one if you're looking and don't have any reservations.

I could also contribute to the library for slants as well as I think it's not listed there the last time I checked. I think the 1084 has contributed to some of my favorites.

Anyway, PM me if interested.

Hi Pliny - I'd really like to try that for my sweet stout - its going to be my next brew - would it be difficult to get Thomas to put it in the library?

Didn't know about the activities this weekend.

My GF's family has a cottage - not too far from Ossie's actually.
