So I just got my first batch of stout going Sunday night, well actually 2am Monday morning. I used one of the Mr. Beer kits and played around with it some. I used 1 can of their St. Patrick's Irish stout HME, 1 can of their creamy brown UME, 1 pack of Booster, and their Wyeast Labs liquid stout yeast. I was a little concerned at first since it was my first time using a liquid yeast and I didn't know how much was supposed to be in the smack pack, it looked like only about a teaspoon came out, and one of the sides of the nutrient pack didn't break, but last night I had plent of bubbles and what looks like yeast cake on the bottom of the fermentor. I'm thinking about leaving it in the fermentor for about a month and then bottle it and lager it for another month before drinking. What do you guys think? I hoping for a nice hearty stout.
