You could use 10 pounds of DME for the pale malt. That'd be all you'd have to do!

That recipe isn't for a stout, though. That recipe sucks, and is for a very sweet amber ale.

I had this stout last night and I for one just wasn't that impressed. It comes in right at 9.6%. I didn't sense any Lactose in it, if it did it wasn't enough for me and the wife. I bought it for the wife and I think it wasn't sweet enough for her. The roasted notes weren't too bad, but there was an upfront bitterness that I wasn't a fan of. Good luck!

Please don't post the same thing in multiple places. ONE post is plenty. Thank you.

Can a beer get sweeter than this one? Holy cow.

Have you had the beer? It wasn't a sweet stout IMPO.

Sure. Looked great, smelled great.. but it was a drain pour. I couldn't stomach it.

That's a shame cause it sounds like it could be tasty. Most of ST's brews are pretty good IMO, guess I'll just have to try it myself!

That recipe looks like it needs some dark/roasted malts to be a stout.

From the bottle: 2-Row Pale malt, dark caramel malt, vanilla bean, lactose sugar (didn't taste it), kettle hops: columbus and aroma hops: Horizon. 9.6% ABV
