So I was looking through the recipes section for a good Stout extract and found this: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f68/boon...h-stout-96675/
I backed way down on the roasted barley and added some Chocolate and an extra lb of dme. I'm curious what everyone thinks.
7.00 lb Light Dry Extract (8.0 SRM) Dry Extract 76.92 %
1.00 lb Roasted Barley (300.0 SRM) Grain 10.99 %
8 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 80L (80.0 SRM) Grain 5.49 %
5 oz Barley, Flaked (1.7 SRM) Grain 3.30 %
(Beersmith didn't like this in an extract recipe and the LHBS said it wouldn't grind well so I put it through the food processor briefly before steeping)
6 oz Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM) Grain 3.30 %
0.50 oz Cluster [7.00 %] (60 min) Hops 11.0 IBU
0.50 oz Chinook [13.00 %] (60 min) Hops 20.4 IBU
1.00 oz Goldings, East Kent [5.00 %] (20 min) Hops 9.5 IBU
1.00 items Whirlfloc Tablet (Boil 15.0 min) Misc
1 Pkgs SafAle English Ale (DCL Yeast #S-04) Yeast-Ale
The bittering hops choices are kind of weird I guess but I just needed the bittering and had these in the freezer. My OG was 1.070, Beersmith est 1.063. Just put the carboy in the closet so I'll find out in a few weeks.
So what do you think?
