Heres the Imperial stout i brewed last sunday.

Imperial Stout

O.G.: 1.091-1.092
F.G.: 1.022-1.023
SRM: 100+
IBU: 78
ABV: 8.8%
Boil is for 90 min.
Volume is 5 gallons.

15 lbs. US 2-row Pale Malt
12 oz. US Chocolate Malt
10 oz. Roasted Barley
8 oz. British Black Malt
18 oz. US 80L Crystal Malt
8 oz. Victory Malt

16.8 HBU's Clusters Hops (Bittering) at 90 min.
(approx. 2.75 @ 7.3%AA)

1/2 oz. Centennial Hops (flavor) at 15 min.
1/2 oz. Northern Brewer (flavor) at 15 min.
1 tsp. Irish Moss at 15 min.

1 oz. Liberty (aroma) at 2 min.

Yeast is Wyeast 1056 American Ale (1st. choice)
1028 London ale (2nd. choice)

Dry hop with 1/2 oz. Liberty

I used the london ale yeast and it took off quite well. Seems a bit sluggish now, Ill have a current hydro reading tommorow. Anyways being my first Impy, how long should one store this for? I was hopeing to bottle them and christmas gift them, but Im feeling this isnt going to be possible. btw i doubled the batch. Im a bit impatient sometimes with beers such as this, and was curious when would be a good time to keg and drink. Is six months appropriate? Id prefer six weeks.

I'd say 6 months at least. The last RIS I did took 2 years to really get good.
LIfe begins at 60...1.060, that is.
