    I wouldn't boil down first runnings. That is some modern American practice that has nothing to
    do with British beer. Scottish ales were mostly pale malt ( maize and sugar too) and enough
    brewers' cara...

    Brewers' caramel is the typical way to adjust colour. You don't need much.

    I think it has been transcribed as time from boil. I've seen that before in older UK recipes.
    Really it means one 90m addition and two 15m additions. The original recipe is likely to have
    contained in...

    Don't use brown malt. The chocolate malt is ok as colour correction. I would not use Victory
    malt either. 1/2lb Amber malt is good if you want to avoid crystal malt. For that OG you should
    up the IBU ...

    It's probably easier if you have kegged it. Try adding a splash to a lighter stout to test.
    Could make a good black and tan!

    Ok, I think it looks good. I'd just consider replacing the crystal for brown malt. Or upping
    the carafa and dropping the crystal.

    Any suggestions on a recipe? Perhaps dialing down the ABV of the same recipe and possibly
    adding 1-2% more roasted malts? How would you go about blending?Wait till the second beer
    ferments, then take ...

    Less melanoiden and crystal but add a bit of carafa to compensate for the colour. They are sort
    of malty and bitter, but not too sweet. As above, a decent IBU and some hop flavour go hand in
    hand with...

    Oh, just read this: "It's residual sugar/FG is actually in the normal range for an Imp Stout. I
    just made the mistake of adding too much vanilla extract to the keg. The extract really
    accentuates the ...
