Hey, I just bottled up a sweet stout (it was actually a kit from NB, but next time I want to go a bit bigger, so will have to put a little investigation into a recipe). I am a bit worried that it is going to be too sweet, based on a surprisingly pleasant sweetness out of the secondary (where usually I'm grimacing at the uncarbonated warm beer, trying to imagine it chilled with carbonation). My OG was 1.050 and the FG was 1.024. This seems to be within your suggested range, but it also seems to be a small amount of attenuation from 1.050. So if it tastes sweet and creamy out of the secondary, is it going to be cloyingly sweet?
