Recipe based on Brewing Network interview with Vinnie Cilurzo on the Sunday Session back in 2005, as well as information provided in "Brew Like a Monk" and Russian River's website. OG should be 1.066, abv 7%, attenuation 82%, single infusion mash 149-151, IBUs 25, with hops listed as Sterling and Styrian Goldings (13-15 IBU at 90 minutes, 7-10 IBU at 30 minutes, and 3-5 IBU at flameout/whirlpool). Possibly consider using Saaz as flameout hop. Russian River's yeast is a propriety version of WLP500 or Wyeast 1214. Pitch at 64F, allow to rise to upper 70s by the 4th day. Primary ferment should be complete in 7 days. Lager at 32F for 10 days to clear yeast. Re-ferment in Keg with additional sugar and bottling yeast (Russian River uses wine yeast). Also consider aging on oak chips for two to three weeks like Russian River does for Damnation "Batch 23". Trying the Ardennes yeast first for this one.
