I am certainly no expert and have never tried it. I have read everything from "guiness puts a drop of liquid nitrogen in each bottle/can" but I also have read that the pressure from carbonation forces the beer inside of the widget and when the bottle is opened it releases and shoots the beer through the holes giving it the effect of a stout faucet. If this is the case, I dont see why they couldnt be sanitized and reused. I have not experimented with this but would love to someday

Bill - thanks for the link. It's an interesting concept (premade wort), but I'm looking for an all-grain recipe. Might be of interest to some others, though.

Phoenix60 - thanks for the link. I've bookmarked it and may try that - I've made some good beer from AHS mini-mash kits before, so expect this one would be good, too.

This is the recipe from BYO for guiness draught. The recipe I mentioned that involves basically three different beers combines was for the Guiness Foreign Extra clone which is strictly an all-grain recipe.

OG - 1.038 FG - 1.006
IBU - 45 SRM - 40 ABV = 4.2%

14.5oz. Light DME
2.66lbs Light LME (late addition)
1lb 6oz. UK pale malt
10oz. Flaked Barley
1lb Roasted Barley
12AAU East Kent Golding (60)
Wyeast 1084 or White Labs 004

Placed crushed grains and flaked barley in a steeping bag. In a large pot, heat 4.5qts to 161F and submerge grain bag. Let grains steep for 45 minutes at around 150F. While grains are steeping, begin heating 2.1 gallons of water in your brew pot. When steep is over, remove 1.25qts of water from brewpot and add to the "grain tea" in steeping pot. Place colander over brewpot and place steeping bag in it. Poir diluted grain tea through grain bag. Heat liquid in brewpot to a boil, then stir in dried malt extract and hops and begin the 60 minute boil. With 15 minutes left in boil, turn off heat and stir in liquid malt extract. Stir well to dissolve extract, then resume heating. *keep boiling clock running while you stir*. At the end of the boil, cool wort and transfer to fermenter. Add water to make 5 gallons. Aerate wort and pitch yeast. Ferment at 72F. Rack to secondary when fermentation is complete. Bottle when clear.

Funny, I seem to have seen them specified. In fact iirc, though I don't have it in front of me, the BYO magazine has a couple versions, one might be the export. But anyway, I would trust the ones from that mag, or clone brews.

Looks like the discussion I found by SEARCHING on here says it's the Draught on the 150.

Byo also has plenty or articles on how to do it yourself.

The recipe I posted above is directly from the BYO 150 mag. The magazine lays out an extract and an all-grain recipe. As I said, the above recipe is for the draught clone. They also have the recipe for Foreign Extra, but it's only in all grain.
