This beer has me back on my game. I was down on my luck and fighting off flavors, so I thought that I'd make a stout.

Wife and I have been drinking it for the last couple of days and it IS GOOD.

This stout + black beans + home grown chile relleno is one hell of a meal. We'll have it at least once a week until either the stout or the chile's run out!

Thanks BM, great beer!

Edit: I used ~1/4tsp acid and it's about right for me. 2 pints and the sour sticks with my tongue, like guinness (I am very sensitive to sour).

Thank you BierMuncher! That was the info I was looking for on the 90 minute mash. Is there an ideal fermentation temp, I can program it in to my fermentation box.

Little question from a little noob:

I'm trying a PM version of this, lacking the big stockpot needed to at least BIAB.

Here's my planned recipe for 5 gallons
6lbs LME
1lbs roast barley
2lbs flaked barley
1/8lbs acid malt
2oz East Kent Goldings
1 sachet of Nottingham

I just realized the recipe I ended up with doesn't have anything really converting the sugars in the flaked barley. 60 grams of acid malt won't do the trick I would imagine.

Should I replace a portion of the LME for a pound of so of 2row? Am I going crazy?

Use at least 2#....one lb for each lb of the grist with no diastatic power and having starches to convert.

Just tapped my keg of this last night to commemorate Guiness's 250th anniversay. Aged 8 weeks and it's a fine stout.

BTW, I'd asked in a separate thread about using WL California Ale yeast for this (as suggested in Ray Daniels book). I used it and it came out quite well. Maybe slightly less fruity(?), but nice and dry. Going to do a side by side w/a Guiness Draught tonight.

Cheers, Arthur Guiness!

I brewed this up last night with 4.5lbs of 2 row and about 2lbs LME. It is fermenting quite happily. I got 70% efficiency with a BIAB method. What a great way to get started with mashing: it's so nice to see that wort get impossibly black.

Default clarification please


Why in post # 68 is 152 for 60 minutes recommended and in post #98 150 for 90 minutes is recommended?
