I brewed Jamil's Dry Stout but I did a few things wrong. I FWH'd the 60 min addition and I didn't grind up the roasted barley to a powder (I just threw it in with the rest of the grains).

My version was not as bitter or acrid as a dry stout normally is, but it is absolutely great. It has a ton of flavor coming from the roasted barley, and a moderate amount of noble hop flavor. It is the most easy-drinking beer with flavor I've ever brewed. I'd recommend the recipe to others.

I'd suggest to everyone attempting this or other dry stout recipes to try to adjust your water to a Dublin profile. The high carbonates help to balance the acrid sharpness from the roasted barley and result in that smooth clean flavor the style is famous for.

+1 I've found that irish ale yeast makes just about the worst dry stout. Which is to say a not-dry, dry stout. My best dry stouts have been made with Nottingham dry yeast. The WhiteLabs Dry English Ale makes a really good choice as well, not sure what a good Wyeast strain would be, don't use them.

I use Safale S-05, overpitched a little and kept the fermentation temperature relatively cool (66 F). This resulted is a clean ester profile and a well-attenuated beer.

This recipe says to mash at 120 for 15 minutes and then raise the temperature to 150 for 60 minutes.

Will there be a dramatic difference if I just mashed at 150 for 60 minutes??

The reason I ask is because I don't know how much water to use initially and how much to add to raise the temperature. I wanted to just keep it simple but if this step is crucial in brewing a dry stout, I will figure it out.

Thanks!

WLP007 Dry English is the ticket,,..I think it definitely tops Notty for dry stouts

If you listen to Jamil's shows he states a few times that he usually only does a single infusion anyway. With today's highly modified malts you can get away with the single infusion. My 70/20/10 dry stout is mashed at 150*F and it turns out great.

Ok, one more question. Jamil says to crush the roasted barely down to dust.

Can I just throw this in the mash or should I steep it. I don't normally steep when it says to. I tend to just mash everything. You can't really steep dust anyway right?? That will make it's way through the grain bag correct?

Would you just mash everything in this recipe??

Mashing it works fine.
