This is a 2 gallon (US) recipe. My FG was a little high because of a stuck fermentation that would not start back up. If you reconfigure this recipe for 5 gallons use a starter, you WILL need it...I used a pitchable tube with enough yeast for 5 gallons and it still stuck. Ended up with a beer that is very dark (hence the name)with hints of ruby. It is still young, but it is really good...almost a winter warmer flavor with a coffee after taste. 8.6% ABV for this batch.
