Hey guys. I plan on making a modified version of this recipe. I made a new thread for the questions I had since it's a different beer. I'd appreciate it if you'd read this and lend any advice you can. Thanks a lot.

Brewing this Monday...
I'm hoping to get 10 gallons (total) from a partigyle... but I'm just going to wing the second batch.

Here are all my available hops:
Challenger 7.8% 8.0 oz } These were bought for this
Uk goldings 5.0% 2.0 oz } RIS recipe.
Uk goldings 5.8% 1.0 oz
Uk goldings 4.5% Partial oz (half-ish)
Unknown, partial oz
Cascade 7.5% Partial 8 oz (half-ish)

I'm thinking of just doing a mini version of the hop bill... so challenger for bittering and goldings for flavor on the half-sized stout.

*** Are your AA% correct (in the original recipe) for the Challenger hops? It seems really low... and the Goldings seems high. I wondered if they were backwards.

You know, I very well could have punched in the AA numbers in the wrong order. You're right in that challenger would typically be around 7% and EKG should be 5-6%. I don't have any hops in the freezer from that far back to verify, but I would think you are correct.

I don't have access to your BeerSmith file anymore (no longer available where you originally posted it), but when I switched the AA% in mine the IBUs were much closer to what you originally put in the recipe.

In any case, I'm going to just use the listed amounts with the hops I have since it seems to be right in style...

I'm looking forward to tomorrow's brew. The partigyle should be exciting!

Ha! I use a 5 gallon bucket for grain too. Sitting there in my local shop's grain room watching the specialty malts fill up the bucket and nearly overflow was pretty hilarious.

I would skip the chocolate. I just transfered from primary to secondary, and the hydrometer sample was really good. There are a lot of subtle flavors already, I think chocolate might hide some of those good flavors from the malt.

Would it be fair to switch the 17 pounds pale malt for about 10 pounds of light DME, and then steep the grains and carry on with the recipe in order to make this easier for someone who can't do all grain brews yet? Or am I totally off here?

Yeah, I think this would work out fine. Some might say to skip the car pils if using DME because it is designed to add head on its own. I would also recommend doing a full volume boil so that you can get decent hop utilization, and allow the dme to incorporate a little easier.
