The only thing that would get me more excited would be to find out that Founders was making a Creme Brulee Breakfast Stout.
Thanks for the info, Man!
If you are ever in Michigan for the world expos of beer in frankenmuth or the fall beerfest in Detroit, they serve it there. At the expos they serve it at about 50 degrees from a cask and oh man, its like a life changing experience. Since then I have run all my stouts and porters thru a sparkler to try for that creamy effect. Not quite casked but it has a magical effect

What the hell is a sparkler? Is that some new equipment I'm going to have to buy? Just say the word. I can convince her. "Honey, the brewing process cannot move forward without a sparkler." More equipment!

a sparkler is a little piece of plastic that goes on the end of a beer engine's spout. Tiny thing, only costs a couple dollars at most. OF course, to USE the sparkler, you must have the beer engine... that is what SWMBO needs to be convinced of

im working on something now with some tooling that will produce (at hopefully the same cost as a standard faucet) a faucet with an insertable restrictor plate (sparkler) or a tapped end for a screw on attachment...we can all cheat the system and save the 250.00 on a mixed gas setup.

Sounds about right to me.

Just tried a 4.5 week sample of the Shakespeare. It is truly amazing.-

This brew is ready to drink and the best part is, it can only get better. I just moved it to the basement (~60-62F) to condition some more while it is still cold here in Northern VA.

I am planning on having one a week but then again we can always bend the rules

PS: Never thought the cascade would come through so clean in a stout, it is overall a great recipe. A great stout, enjoyed it while smoking my Dr Grabow in the backyard with my roommate. Perfect.-

also, you can ge a sparklers attachment for your conventional beer faucet...its called a stout tip or stout attachment or something. It will do the job.
Or, there is a site called ritebrew.com that is selling stout faucets for 35.00 the only advantage to using mixed gas that ive seen is that ot is more efficient to push the beer thrum. Otherwise you have to turn up the pressure on the co2 a bit to get the same effect...still cheaper than buying the mixed gas setup...or the gas itself
