This recipe adapted from Brew365. It is very hoppy and I aged it 1 month before I considered drinking it. I added the Munich to get more malty flavor and it does come through. If anyone trys this I am sure they will like the results. In any event, let me know.

This is a late-addition extract brew. After seeping the C20 for 30 mintues at ~150-170°F, remove the grains and bring to a boil. Add ONLY the Perle hops and Malto-Dextrin and set the timer for 60 minutes. With 20 minutes left, pause the timer, remove from heat, and add the 6# of DME. Stir until it is all dissolved, and then return the pot to the heat; resume the timer (still with 20 minutes left) when the wort comes to a boil. Proceed as usual. The finishing Cascade hops were actually added as 1/2 oz portions at 15, 10, 5, and 1 minute remaining.

I made a very similar beer on Friday, you are right about the hops, good amount for a stout! I will be sure to age this a bit before dirinking like you did and let you know how it tastes. How did it compare to the commercial version? Is this a good clone?
