A while back I made this recipe with a few minor substitutions for ingredients available on-hand. Fermented with S-04 dry yeast. It was the best beer I've ever made. Split a 10 gallon batch with a friend and I wish I had kept the whole 10 for myself. It was gone in a hurry.

Anyone know which black barley malt is used in this? Is it the 660L or the 500L

EDIT: Looked up the forum on this for CYBI- Jamil states this is Black Patent Malt.

I brewed this using 500 L Briess Black Barley. It still came out great.

Well if one was to post this recipe and ask people for feedback- there would be a lot of "way too much black patent" etc. I will report back after I start drinking it. Should be 8 weeks or so.

Great beer. Never had Obsidian, but the clone is delightfully good. Just had one last night, but the bottle was overcarbed.

I know. I can't understand the hate for black patent. I routinely use up to a pound in my basic stout recipe. A pound and a half sounds interesting; I may have to play. Hope the beer turns out well - keep us posted!

Brewing this right now. About ready to cool. I tasted the wort preboil and I was shocked at how smooth it tasted, no acrid burnt character. I'd assume there will be some of that there later but the wort was very tasty.

I think I may use this as a guide for my next brew.

Brewed this a few weeks ago... I upped the wheat by a pound and dropped the black patent to a bit over 1 pound... Wasnt 100% on the hops so i cut back a bit as well.. more flavouring less bittering.... At that point I named it a porter and wont touch it for a month
