Default Thinking of make a Stout Graff

So I was thinking of making a Stout Graff.

Here is the Recipe I have come up with, it was modified from Brandon O's I was wondering what you guys might think. This will be my first go at a Graff, but I like stouts and figured I would throw it in the mix.

**UPDATE**
after going through the forums for most of the last 2 days and looking at stout recipes and the like, I have finally decided on the end recipe I am going to try out.

Materials needed for a 5 Gallon Batch

White Labs Irish Ale Yeast WL004
1.5 lb English Maris Otter
3/4 lb Flaked Barley
1/2 lb English Roasted Barley
1/2 lb Chocolate Rye (Weyermann®)
2 oz Acidulated Malt
1/2 oz UK Fuggle Leaf Hops
4 Gallons of Mott's apple juice.
1 gallon of water
2 lb of Munton & Fison (UK) Extra Dark DME
1 tsp yeast energizer
2 tsp yeast nutrient

Stout graff sounds yummy, let us know how it turns out.

The idea kind of reminds me of this recipe:

Wonder if it'll be anything like an Irish black velvet.
Beamish over Dry Blackthorn is my go-to at an Irish pub that has them on tap.

Yeah that's where I kinda got the idea when I was looking for a stout recipe. And I am still thinking of mine so it may be tweaked some more. But for sure, once I get it finished I will post some updates.

This is another area I got the Idea from. Me and a friend go out to lunch every weekend and we hit JL Beers up every now and then. They do the Guinness Stout and Cider.

I think I will be doing this Mid October, that's when I have to go out and buy some more juice and other things to finish off some Hard Cider and Apple Wines I have brewing atm.

I figured I would just get it all done at once. I will post pics once I do go too brew and update the OG and so on.

Sounds tasty, but I'm wondering why the acidulated malt? I tried some in a graff a while back, didn't really notice any difference in flavour. I never tried chocolate rye before, but I've got a graff to brew later today using 4oz of chocolate malt (and a few other things). Regards, GF.

I was going to do the acidulated malt for a sour flavor more in line to Guinness. I will be experimenting mainly. Just piecing things together from stout information I have seen and ones I have tasted.

Giving this one a bump just to see how this turned out?

I recently accidentally mixed a little bit of my very roasty, stout-like Scottish ale with a little bit of cider and it inspired me to try something like this.
