Bimppidy, wondering how this turned out as after many warmers so far this season my wallet say I'd better make a batch.  Would you mind posting your final recipe/hop bill?

Is it on the right track as far as a Pics Warmer clone goes?

Aye - Jake - Can you post the recipe you used for the batch I tried? I'd like to try a variant of it. I gathered from the thread that you eventually used 05, more grain, and I've no idea what mash temp.

Brian_S: the version Jake brought to the meeting was real close, but needed a little less chocolate in it to get closer to cloning the Pic's.

So I've updated the recipe on pg 1 to what I think I used ... 95% sure. Probably should have documented a little better.

I think the only changes I'd make would be use a bit less chocolate, although I did like how roasty it was, but was notably more roasty than Pic's WW ... but all based on preference. Also, probably up the mash temp to 154 for a little more body.

I'm going to do another 10 gallons of this on my new propane setup next week once I get back from Moncton. I may use another couple pounds of grain to up the alcohol for the Christmas holiday.
