What do you guys think?

Do any of you use beertools.com? I joined the beta program testing thing and I also joined the forum. It looks to be just like HBT.com. I don't think I'll visit there often, what about you guys?

A half pound of black patent is going to give you a strong burnt toast flavor. I never use more than 4 oz. per batch, but to each his own.

Another thing, why the crystal malt? In a typical dry stout you don't want very much sweetness coming through.

Just for S&G, the famous Guinness dry stout recipe is 90% pale malt, 10% roasted barley. All I'm saying is sometimes simpler is better.

I'm not saying your recipe is inaccurate, it is your beer. I actually think some crystal would be good in it, but not too much.

I agree with the other sentiments, lose the black patent completely.

I'm gonna use Pale ME in my actual recipe but Beertools doesn't have that option for some reason. I'll cut the black patent way down. Thanks guys. I also forgot to add the .25 lbs of flaked oats for the oatmeal texture...

I don't like the Beta test program, the calculations don't seem to be spot on all the time...
