I brewed this in July of this year and it is phenomenal! I did everything Rickclark did except I used Wyeast Irish Ale. It is spot on in the tastse, but the only difference is the mouthfeel. I'm using CO2 and do believe that using beer gas and the proper tap would correct this.

I made two versions of this recipe, one I used some old roasted barley from a prior Scotch Ale brew, and this was crushed. The second batch I used uncrushed roasted barley and this batch didn't compare to the frist batch. The beer wasn't as dark (light brown) and the flavor wasn't as nice as the frist batch. I second the crushing of the roasted barley!

Quick question on souring the guinness. Because you do this will you need to dedicate a keg and beer lines to a "Sour" beer or will it not matter because it is boiled before added? I'm gonna do this recipe next for my first all grain.

The boiling pasteurizes it. No need to use different equipment.

Thanks. I figured but wanted to check first.

It seems my gravity is going to finish high at 1.022. I'm going to check again tonight to see if it has moved in the last week, but my buddy that fermented the other half said his is at 1.022 as well.

Anybody else have this brew finish high? I'm thinking our mash temp must have been high. The sample tasted fantastic. Great, full mouthfeel and the sour Guinness character was there. I can live with the sweeter brew and it still leaves us at 5% after priming.

Getting ready to keg this within the next 2 days (Time permitting) I just got my beer gas and stout faucet all set up to. I will post when I try my first pint!

Norcal,

What was your starting gravity?? That does seem quite high for an ending gravity. In the future if this happens you might try adding some Amylase enzyme. It will break down in additional starches you missed and get you back on track. Additionally start doing an Iodine test to help with total conversion. I'm sure you're probably doing this but if not and others are having this problem this is a quick and easy fix. Respond to this is you need more info.

I find this enzyme locally, funny that Northern brewer doesn't carry it if you need a link:http://www.beer-wine.com/products/am...nzyme-15-ounce

This really helps with clearing my pale lagers, and ales. I have really hard water.

Does this look close enough for an extract conversion? Still going to do the sour addition.

That looks close to me drumming. You can see that beersmith has your OG higher and your IBU's lower. I think the reason for this difference is that the OP expects 68% efficiency from his AG process. Since you are using extract for most of your fermentables it predicts you to have a higher OG, and since your OG is higher your IBU's go down (this is cause hop utilization is a function of gravity).

Now, if you brew your recipe as is I think it will taste great. And be very close to the original, but here are some considerations to think about. Firstly since the OP's recipe is all grain, the ratio of the contribution of each grain will remain constant despite if he hits his efficiency estimate. That means the beer will remain balanced the way the recipe describes: 66.66% pale malt, 25% flaked barely, 8ish roasted barley. However in your recipe you can expect that the extract will get near 100% efficiency while your steeping of the grains will get a significantly lower amount of efficiency. Therefore the fermentables that end up in the brewpot may be something like 80% pale malt xtract, 18% flaked barley, and 2% roasted barley. I think if you did a side by side taste test the most dramatic difference would be caused by this rather than any difference between the extract and the grain.

This is primarily speculation, I've only anecdotal evidence to support it. I usually increase the steeping grain weight when converting to account for this. Makes sense in my head, but that doesn't mean it is is right, lol. You should report back what you think of the beer when its done though.
