Default All-Grain - Brad's Dry Stout

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WLP007 Dry English Ale - OR - WLP004 Irish Ale
Yeast Starter: Yes
Batch Size (Gallons): 25L
Original Gravity: 1.040
Final Gravity: 1.010
IBU: 43
Boiling Time (Minutes): 70
Color: 30
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14
Additional Fermentation: 31
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14

This is my house beer. It normally comes out to 3.8-4% alcohol which for me is a nice session beer. It has definite roasted character which I also like, I think it is similar to what Guinness USED to be.

I find it turns out the best with WLP007 (Dry English Ale) over WLP004 (Irish Ale). I must admit I only made it with WLP004 for quite a few batches - but it is much drier if you use WLP007.

Recipe Efficiency: 75%

Grain
3.00 kg. Pale Malt(2-row), 1.036
1.20 kg. Flaked Barley, 1.032
0.50 kg. Roasted Barley, 1.028

Hops
70.00 g. Goldings - E.K., Pellet, 4.75%, 60 min.

Extras
1.00 Irish Moss, 15 Min.

Mash
Ratio: 2.3L/KG
Sacc. Rest: 150F @ 60 min.
Mash Out: 168F @ 10 min.
Sparge: 170F @ 45 min.

Carbonation
carbonate to 2.2 volumes

Thanks! That looks great and good head on it, too. I look forward to making this once I knock out a couple "warm weather" beers. It's sweltering here in Washington, DC. Nasty stuff. Appreciate your sharing, and once I make this, I'll let you know how it turns out. I'll be batch sparging, so may not get quite the same results, but should be good. ---Steve

This is the first stout I have made and my first kegged brew. I am not a great fan of stouts but this simple brew is real nice and is getting better each week I have been hitting it. I have to learn some patience with the kegs.

I'm glad you enjoy it! It is a staple of my kegerator (and bottles before that).

I should get around to amending the recipe, I've found Nottingham is by far the best yeast I've used in this recipe (indeed it's all I use in this recipe now).

I used Nottingham because I have been using dry yeasts as of late but maybe next time I might try WLP 002 as I like that yeast. My pours look just like the one you posted and the head gets thicker with lovely tiny bubbles.

Something like this is on the agenda for the weekend. Roasted barley and flaked barley should be waiting for me. I think I'm using Fuggles, though, I've got a crapload of them, and it'll probably be either Notty, US-05, or S-04.

I'm an admitted EKG-aholic, but this seems to turn out the same regardless of the hops. I usually make it with galena now to save some money on the batch.

What kind of pale malt are you using? I've got a sack of Maris Otter, which might change the character a bit (not necessarily for the worse).
