I'm so glad you like it. I've always liked this beer. It's a pretty good recipe.

I racked to keg with 1/2 cup corn sugar about 5 weeks ago, and it is very delicious. This is getting tastier by the day.
It is fairly malty, not sure if this is just the way mine turned out or what but I like it very much (I used marris otter also).

The mint character is very subtle but then again I put whole leaves in secondary without any chopping whatever, so you could split the leaves into quarters and get more mint flavor if you prefer. I am looking forward to getting another batch of this going soon....

I was just setting this up in Beer Smith so I have it to brew late summer/early fall, and as usual, I have a couple questions....

It is showing me an IBU of 13.4 and you show 23.4, was there a misprint or did I miss something?

When you added the mint to the secondary, your orig. recpie says 5 mins, but its safe to assume its longer than that.. was it 5 days or 14 days......?

This really sounds amazing and I almost wish it would be cold enough, long enough for me to try this before it gets too warm out, but its a bit late for that. I don't think it'd make a good lawnmower/summer beer.

Looks like a great recipe I'd like to try, but I don't know about making a full 5 gallons. Anybody ever try a 1 or 2 gallon batch?

Just stumbled across this one and it sounds interesting. Has anyone aged this? Do the mint flavors fade as quickly as they do with hops when you dry hop a beer?

what did you do to sanitize the mint leaves? soak in vodka or anything of the like?

I just racked my stout on top of the mint leaves about 4 days ago. Going to let it sit for a week or so and then bottle. I soaked the leaves in Vodka before racking so I'll follow up when I actually bottle (and then afterwards when I taste). Very excited about the prospect.

Kind of off topic, but I am thinking of following this recipe and using some unsweetened coconut, rather than the mint.

this is about to be my first all grain adventure too. I am making one slight change and that is when I go to secondary I have two small 3 gallon buckets so I am only making half with mint and half with out. I am a big fan of doing small experiments like this. I will make sure to let everyone know how i goes.
