1.043's pretty tame for you isn't it Michael ?
I haven't used llamand before either, let us know what you think.
Mind you, I haven't used '05 much lately either, using MJ's new World Strong Ale or the Cali Lager yeast
And planning on giving the Cali Lager a run for ales after listening to a couple f podcasts
Hope the brew is good
These days I try to make most of my beers 4 to 5%abv. The S05 batch is bubbling away happily. However, the Bry-97 seems to be a real slow poke. We will see how it turns out in the end. It will be interesting to compare the flavours.
I brewed a big beer yesterday, and had the joy of a constantly stuck sparge to deal with. What should have been a 5 hour brew turned into 9.5 to 10 hours including cleanup. It was a Wee Heavy based on McZainasheff’s Wee. https://byo.com/article/strong-scotch-ale-style-profile/
I meant to get a 1.099, but only got to 1.082 as well. A very rough day.
More in line with the kind of beer i brew according to the people who know me on this forum... Any advise on this? I am planning to brew this on Friday.

Last minute change...I swapped the Gladfield American Malt for Marris Otter. It was actually an accident, I was just grabbing my base grain, and by default that tends to be MO. Oh well. Maybe it will be pleasant surprise :)
I reckon you will like it, MO is a fantastic grain for big ales imho
beer reminds me of the original Maximus recipe
yours is way bigger....
It is similar...I bet that I would like that too!
I am trying to remember that beer....one of the North Welly brewers made a clone a few years back...
I agree on the Marris Otter. I love the grain, and often use it in a SMASH recipe. The only other base grain I like more is Golden Promise.
