Ditto on the curdle. If you let your car bomb sit too long, the baileys will curdle in your beer- i think its safe to assume that the same would happen if you added it to your recipe.

THis one sounds really freakin good. keep us posted.

Default My version of a Irish Car Bomb - Extract


So folks I couldn't wait any longer to hear how that previous recipe turned out as in 5 weeks we are having our Annual Irish Olympics so I had to get moving!

I took an all grain clone of Left Handed Milk Stout and tweaked it a tiny bit in BS for an extract brew. LHMS is one of my favorites and it's got a lot of depth in it. I taste a nice combination of a chocolate milk, roasted barley, tiny hint of coffee and nuts, maybe a illusion of Irish Cream Liqueur already there so in my book it's pretty close to an Irish Car Bomb but it just has a lot more flavor! It is "lacking" the Jameson so I will consider adding about 4 sticks of chopped and soaked vanilla in Jameson to the secondary.

Im just worried about having the vanilla or Jameson come through too much. Does anybody have experience with either of these in the secondary with a stout?

Here is the BS recipe:

FYI, there's already a 10 page thread on this elsewhere in the forums. I just was bumping this one in hope that the OP had finished it.

I would have done a starter. If you dont see any action by tonight or tomorrow morning, pitch again.

Keep us posted. I'm seriously thinking about this one.

Well, I'll continue my threadjack. Racked to secondary Friday, and added the Jameson & vanilla mixture (smells amazing combined). I took gravity measurements prior to adding the mixture, but now when I bottle in a week or two, how will I be able to calculate my final ABV? Would the added Jameson alter it at all, or am I overthinking it and the normal method of OG - FG * 131 be fine?

Bottled on Sunday. I tasted the beer, and passed some around to friends who were helping me. It tastes incredible. When tasting, you get the Guinness up front, then a hint of Jameson, and then a vanilla aftertaste. It wasn't quite what I was looking for, but it's very good anyway. I'll let you know in about a month what it actually tastes like.

I added a generic brand of Baileys to part of a batch of a Hefeweizen at bottling and it didn’t curdle at all. Don’t ask me why I did it but it came out pretty good. Maybe it’s because I didn’t add a whole lot but it was enough to change the flavor.

interesting. what made you choose baileys to throw in? the milkyness throws me off. guess to cream up a hefe a bit would make sense
