this turned out absolutely awesome - great beer for st. paddy's day and everyone loved it. in fact, one of my friends already paid me in full for ingredients to make another 'personal batch' of it just for him.

it's medium-bodied and crimson colored with a warm opening bouquet of almost fruity flavor with a nice undertone of hoppiness that finishes off with an aftertaste of mellow caramel sweetness. so good. so sad its gone! (the batch didn't even last 5 days!)

enjoy! :mug:

Going to brew a 10gal batch of this today w/the only difference being Magnum pellet instead of Challenger leaf.

TY for the recipe, bro. :ban:

I'm lookin' forward to brewin' it tomorrow. :rockin:

Did you use 1 oz. of Goldings pellets or whole leaf? Why the brown sugar (more alcohol, I'm guessing)?

Cheers, and happy brewin'! :mug:

I used Goldings pellets, and yes, as you guessed, the brown sugar is to up the ABV to an appropriate level for the holiday :D

but anyway, since it's come and gone again, I thought I'd post for you guys my updated version of the recipe for this year. Came out wonderful, and everyone was even more into it than last year! It just keeps getting better.

The best taste, however, will be approximately around 48 days from the day you brewed it. So coordinate your schedule for next year accordingly - brewing perhaps on the 15th of Feb or so.

I agree with the switch to fuggles and torrified wheat. I brewed the first recipe you posted and it was good. Thanks for posting it, bro! Cheers! :mug:

A bit :rockin: Been to see them six times. Probably my favorite band.

As for AG, I'd probably do 7.25 lb Pale Malt in place of the Extract. I'd also watch the ferm temp getting too high as the safale 04 is pretty notorious for being fruity - also, I'd do a 3 day diacetyl rest after fermentation subsides. This style of beer is pretty prone to it.

Dangerbrew - how did the color turn out on your brew? I'm mid-boil right now and think it's going to be a little on the dark side just because of the malt extract. Just wondering if you got much "red" out of it. Can't wait to see the finished product, thanks for the recipe!

Hey man,

You definitely get that deep reddish copper color the style is supposed to have in the BJCP guidelines. It looks beautiful when held up in front of a light source.

PS - My Boondock Irish Stout is entered in a competition taking place tomorrow - The Fairmont Homebrewer's Club Brewmaster's Cup 2011! I'll let you know how it does! If it wins, I may even post an update of the recipe on the site, which I haven't done in over a year and a half I think.
