Looks a bit rough, but it works great. Dropped 5 gallons from 160 to 80 in about 12 minutes. Can't wait to test this on tomorrow's batch..!

Very cool. Mine does not seem to drop it any lower than 80.

What are you brewing?

I'm doing another round of Imperial Rye - Oodles of hops (21oz) and loads of sugars (16.5 lbs)

Gotta get my stock replenished after the party the other weekend wiped out two cases of my favorites...

I've scaled it back a little - going from a 90 minute boil to 60-70 minutes, and down to 22oz hops - since it's getting late and my wife will kill me if I'm still doing this at midnight... Boiling as we speak!

Here's the recipe:

Partial Mash:
2.50 lb Rye Malt
0.50 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine
0.50 lb Toasted Pale 6-row Malt

Extracts:
3.00 lb Dark, Plain Spraymalt DME
11.00 lb Super Light Extract

Hops:
1.00 oz Warrior (bulk) [15.00 %] (60 min)
1.00 oz Warrior (bulk) [15.00 %] (50 min)
1.00 oz Warrior (bulk) [15.00 %] (40 min)
1.00 oz Warrior (bulk) [15.00 %] (30 min)
1.00 oz Warrior (bulk) [15.00 %] (15 min)
1.00 oz Warrior (bulk) [15.00 %] (14 min)
1.00 oz Warrior (bulk) [15.00 %] (13 min)
1.00 oz Warrior (bulk) [15.00 %] (12 min)
1.00 oz Warrior (bulk) [15.00 %] (11 min)
1.00 oz Cascade (bulk) [6.00 %] (10 min)
1.00 oz Cascade (bulk) [6.00 %] (9 min)
1.00 oz Cascade (bulk) [6.00 %] (8 min)
1.00 oz Cascade (bulk) [6.00 %] (7 min)
1.00 oz Cascade (bulk) [6.00 %] (6 min)
1.00 oz Cascade (bulk) [6.00 %] (5 min)
1.00 oz Cascade (bulk) [6.00 %] (4 min)
1.00 oz Cascade (bulk) [6.00 %] (3 min)
1.00 oz Cascade (bulk) [6.00 %] (2 min)
1.00 oz Cascade (bulk) [6.00 %] (1 min)
3.00 oz Cascade (bulk) [6.00 %] (Dry Hop 10 days)

1.00 items Whirlfloc Tablet (Boil 15.0 min)
1 Pkgs East Coast Ale (White Labs #WLP008)

Should be around 9.5% if all goes to plan... :)

The first one I did of this recipe turned out very yummy, but then again I like 'em strong, bitter, and powerful... :)

Oh ok. Sounds yummy. For some reason, I was thinking 16lbs of white cane sugar.

Yup, kinda, but since I bought a whole ton of both hops and extract in bulk, it got quite a bit cheaper (25-30%).

Besides, all it takes is a couple of these babies, and I'm singing silly songs about goblins... :)

Measured OG 1.096. Let's see how the fermentation gets going - the blowoff tube is at the ready...

Oh, and the IC brought the wort down to 80F in about 20 minutes, less than half the time of the ice bath method
