I had a very long brew day yesterday brewing up an imperial stout. It started when I woke up to my starter having overflowed like crazy during the night which resuleted in a bunch of yeast being lost and my house smelling like bread. All went well until I added 6 lbs of DME towards the end of the boil to boost my gravity because my tun was too small to hold more grain. Well, it's been a long time since I've used extract and when I stopped stirring for just a few seconds, and I had a boil over.
All in all I guess I had more boil off than anticipated and over shot my gravity, ending up with 5.5 gallons of 1.108 beer when I wanted 6 gallons of 1.090 beer. Hopefully my yeast can chew through this. Any of you have experience with a beer this big?
