The hops thing is right as far as I know. the style doesn't have hop aroma/flavor. Vatting as far as I know means putting everything together to ferment. The head comes from the tap. You need a tap with a restrictor plate (stout tap) and a beer gas blend (75% N2 and 25% Co2). The beer is conditioned on Co2 then dispensed with the beer gas so it doesn't become over carbonated at the pressure required for passing through the restrictor plate.

Look up O'flannigan standard in the stout recipe area. Great place to start. Use some flaked barley for the head retention (maybe 1/2 to a lb.). Yes, use some bittering hops, no need for flavor or aroma hops in a regular stout recipe. Anything you have on hand to get you the IBU's you are looking for.

Not alot of hop flavor or aroma in this style, just enough to balance it.
