Right, the pre-boil didn't make sense to me either. The last 2 times I made this I did as you suggested. Never tried it the other way. The first time I did this, I couldn't tell if the Guinness...

I would use liquid yeast only when I have to, like for a Wit or Wheat beer where the yeast taste is critical. My most recent brew was a Duvel and I got the yeast from a bottle of Duvel.

Sorry, I've only tried the bottle yeast. At the time, I was very satisfied with the flavor which I assume was from the yeast.

Hi,
This looks like the ballpark of the recipe I made in 1995. I'm just getting around to making it again! I used the yeast from the Duvel Bottle. I'll plan on doing this again. Last time I didn't...

I naturally carb. I also was having trouble getting this up to carb levels last time. Seems like it took a month until it was OK. Not sure why. I naturally carb and then put it on CO2.

OK, I'm happy to note that this is the first beer I used a diffusion stone with nitrogen. What a difference. This was ready to drink with a creamy head in one day! Taste was well balanced, some...

I brewed this last weekend. Someone noted that the color would not be as dark as Guiness and I agree. I used 1 ounce of EKG and a little of my homegrown Willamette. I soured some beer, but it was...

This will be made again 4th time? My wife put in an order for this one. I save a little by subbing in some of my cascade hops for one of the others.

I thought that the rule of thumb was to ferment to 1/4 of OSG which would be 1.022. Wouldn't that say that anything below that would be dry and above that number would be sweet - all things being...

OK, thanks, I didn't know that. I will crank it up a bit before the sparge then.

I surprised at the people who do this as their first. It seems like an ambitious 1st whole grain due to the amount of grain, but apparently it works out.

I found this brew a bit challenging. I fly...

Thanks, I'll have to monitor this more closely this time as my OSG was low last time due to too much sparge water - or as you mention not enough boil. I'll be working at this tomorrow. Did you...

Some people roll the bottle sideways before pouring. I usually pour about 2/3 and swirl the rest and pour it out. Short answer, yes.
