Is it too late to start a stout brew that needs to be ready by St. Paddy's day?!? Will there be enough time for it to sit and be at peak flavor?

You have plenty of time for a nice stout. Ask me in mid-January and it might be a different story.

When is that? Any stout around 4-5% would be ready in 6-7 weeks.

March...17th...usually...

Plenty of time for a stout...and even more time to brew several batches of Irish ale...

Don't base your decision on what others like...my wife doesn't like oatmeal, but I can't keep her away from an oatmeal cookie (w/raisins)!

I like most beers that I have tried. And, yes, I am proud to say I still have never ever had coors light, el al. I was "conditioned" in the old german style beers and so never had to go the mass produced American beer route.

Anyway, since I have never had one and others seem to really like them, I might as well try it. I am up for trying anything as I learn!
