With this brew, it was accidentally mashed at 157, but it turned out for the better. It added a bit more sweetness, but not overpowering. Expect to use a blow-off tube with this brew/yeast if unless your fermenting vessel is over-sized. I have alot of friends that hate stouts and porters, but cant get enough of this stout. So far it is my #1 brew with all of my friends and family. It was put together with the help from Gary, at my LHBS, thus it was named after him. Enjoy :mug:

OOOOO This looks good. Thinking about brewing this for Saint Patty's :) Thanks!

I love dark/rich/heavy stouts and I gotta say this one caught my eye and that pic you put up makes it look AWESOME. Is there any lengthy ageing needed for this, except for the primary, secondary and carbonation? Usually with the RIS and so on you have to let it sit for 6-8 months before its in its prime. How long do you usually wait before you dig in?

So I brewed this today, but when I put the ingredients list into iBrewmaster it it showed the potential OG was going to be 1.079. I hit my numbers almost dead on according to iBrewmaster. My OG was 1.080. How were you able to get 1.090 with 72% eff with this? What did I do wrong lol pics below :) It was a smooth brew day! Now, I wait... Lol

This may sound like a really dumb question, but this will be my first stout. I REALLY want to make this my first stout, but one thing I noticed, and I've noticed across all stout recipes I came across, that there seems to be a lot of missing volume

Boil Size: 7.37 gal
Post Boil Volume: 6.24 gal
Batch Size (fermenter): 5.00 gal
Bottling Volume: 4.25 gal

why is only 5 gallons transferred to fermenter? And why is bottling volume only 4.25 gallons? What's going on between end of boil and fermenter, and while in the fermenter to lose all that volume? I'm sorry if this is something I should know about stouts. I've been searching the site and google about this but I can't find anything. Thanks, can't wait to try this!

Oh wow, I didn't think you would lose 1.24 gallons between post boil and into the fermenter. Must be a stout thing lol. Thanks!

Also, what would be a good white labs yeast to use for this? The equivilant to s-33 looks to be WLP006, but no one carries that that i can find.
