According to Guinness, they krausen all their beers and never force carb, so priming would be more "exact" (or whatever that means).

Would that give me a lot of byproduct and clog up the restrictor plate?

I know that some people who naturally carb in kegs will cut the dip tube about 1" short to avoid sucking up sediment. I was just letting you know that natrually carbing is closer to what guinness is actually doing...I really don't think it matters if you're pushing with Nitogen anyways.

That would give it a couple weeks to condition as well
Yeah it really is. Give it a few hours on beergas and you will be good to start pooring. But yes after a day or 2 it is fine. In regards to clogging your restrictor plate I forgot to mention before I go over to beer gas I take off the restrictor plate and pour a pint to get rid of the settled sediment and then put on the restrictor plate. BAM! Guinness in your garage!

Looking forward to this one, brewing it to commemorate getting a keezer built! Even got a Guinness tap handle and faucet to dispense with! Going to brew sunday and hoping this comes out good.

Wow, I can't believe how awesome this stuff tastes. And it's only been kegged for 4 days!

Couldn't resist and had to pull my first pint ever off nitro... I can't believe I have this in my basement.

Wookiemofo,

The closer to 150F you get the drier the beer will be, The 152F works out good for me. If you find its to dry in your opinion bump the sarach. conversion up a couple of degrees. Thats the main effect of the mash temp on this recipe.... When you couple that with the long protien rest (the beer thins out) the taste gets really close.

Yeah I'm gonna pull another pint tonight, after thinking about it last night I may want it a little drier. I have to go back and look at what my mash temps were.

Brewing this right now, it smells amazing! Did any one bother with irish moss or whorlfloc?

Whirfloc here... gave it a full test this weekend with a buddy of mine. It does have a bit different taste but it's real similar, and real good.

The main thing I noticed is it doesn't seem as dark as guinness. It still has the same red tone, but a lot more light seemed to pass through my beer then a pint of guinness. Not sure what attributes to that.
