Ode To Arthur, Irish Stout (Guinness Clone)
 
1 Attachment(s)

Named for Arthur Guinness and his silky smooth contribution to the world.

I have a few extra cornies on the way to the house so I'm going to try and get two of these filled and set aside. I'd love to let these guys condition for 3-4 months before tapping them next fall. I'm not sure that's gonna happen though...

Many thanks to Dude (and others), whose guidance helped me keep this Guinness Clone true to it's simple roots...

Yes I did. Couldn't resist.

I can see now where the canned/bottled, local draft versions get mixed reviews from the folks who have tasted an "authentic" recipe.

This recipe was much roastier than I would have expected. Very good though.

I'd imagine that changing the grains ratio from 65% Pale, 25% Flaked Barley and 10% Roasted Barley to 70%, 25%, 5% would tame down and mellow the flavor.

I happen to like this recipe and will likely brew it again. It came in a bit higher ABV% than I would have thought...around 5.2%. Turns out that my Bass & Co Ale is also ready to tap and I've been serving up authentic Black & Tans which are outstanding. I'm willing to bet that this combo tastes even better during the cold winter months.

By the Gods I love this friggen beer.


I brewed it last year as my 3rd AG and first 10 gallon batch.
My old apartment was limited on space and 2 carboys in the spare bedroom in a large bureau thing.
Due to having only a single thermostat which resided in the apartment upstairs, the room reached over 90 while I was away.
1 of the carboys tasted so terrible I dumped it. The other was a friggen dream.
Not sure if it was an infection or the heat or what.
Had a st.pats party and the 5 gallons evaporated quite quickly.
The keezer was just raw wood and I kept joking how it was a fully-operations-battle-star.


Broke it out again for the 2nd annual St.Pats party this coming Sat due to popular demand. I was storing this beer in my back room with the thermo set to 65 and the beer fermented out at that until I went skiing and came back to 50 degree beer and a hosed thermo. IDK if thats what caused it but I finished high at just a shade under 1.02. Tasted good and I was running out of time so I said Eff it and kegged it.

Just poured it off nitro and my I must say, its fan-****ing-tastic.
Its SPOT on to the original. I'm going to have to get a few nitro cans and do a side-by-side.

Grain to glass, not a word of a lie, exactly 2 weeks. And it's excellent. Bottled. It is properly carbed at 3 days in the bottle. I told my husband we have to drink all of it this weekend in case I messed up somehow priming it... Don't want bottle bombs... He took a sip, hid a smile, and obeyed SHMBO
