Default Guinness clone recipe

I'm looking for a really good Guiness clone recipe. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I made JZs dry Irish stout recipe out of 'brewing classic styles' and I think it was better then guiness. I did not grind the roasted barley like it said too. It tasted similar, but with a lot more flavor. I enjoyed the first batch so much I made another today.

Hi,
Here's the personal recipe I use when I want something like Guinness.

Also here's a nice little piece I put together on brewing Irish Stouts for the last St Patty's day.

Cheers,
Brad

I agree that Jamil's recipe is excellent, but it's more like Murphy's than Guinness -- a lot less sour than the latter.

I used this recipe for the stout i will be bottling this afternoon. This is my second AG brew and I can't vouch for the finished product, but from the taste when making my FG reading, it should be a winner. I know that Guinness adds a small amount of soured beer to get that distinctive taste. I have had thoughts of experimenting with that at some point. While i do love Guinness, I am big fan of dry Irish Stouts in general.

PS Brad,
This tread reminded me that it was time to purchase a registration key for BeerSmith. It has been absolutely critical in my successful transition to all-grain. Slainte!

This gets great reviews from folks that are fans of Vitamin G....the touch of acid malt and WLP007 are keys IMHO. Loads of flavor and has become my house brew.

one of the recipes says to steep the grains for 30 to 60 min. At what point in the process is this done? And do I boil the malt with the hops or pour the hop water over the malt extract?

steeping means to put the grain in a muslin mesh bag and put them in the water to soak while it is heating up to about 150 then hold it there for the 30 min steep time remove , rinse, then continue with boiling the wort. do not boil grains as you'll extract harsh tannins from the grain husk which will give your beer an astringent taste(pucker factor).

A good resource for Clone recipes is BYO magazine's "150 Clone Brews" issue. I know my lhbs keeps it in stock. Unfortunately the recipe is not online...

But this is an interesting one, it takes into consideration the Guiness Twang...The mix of fresh and sour beers....

9 lbs Brit pale ale
1 lb flaked barley
18 oz roast barley
12 oz carapils
1.5 oz No. Brewer hops (60 min)
1 oz East Kent Goldings hops (60 min)

First, get the "tang" the way Guinness does: Sour about 24 oz (2 bottles) of stout (pref. Guinness) by leaving it out in a bowl a week or more & then freezing it.
While brewing, thaw the sour stout & heat it to 180-190 F for 20 min.
Mash-in at 155F, hold for 1 hour, boil 1 hour & 15 minutes.
At end boil, add the sour stout.
At 70F, pitch 2 packs of Wyeast #1084.
A month or so of cold lagering (<40F) after bottling or kegging will help.
A certified beer judge could not tell this from bottled Guinness.
