I am no expert, but I reckon one would just substitute the 6 lbs of Amber LME with some 2 Row and/or Munich? Probably around 8lbs of grain, anyhow.

It's been a long time since I've brewed this one. Glad to see the post is still alive!

The Amber LME I used is made from 2 row and C60. If I had it to do over again, I'd substitute 1 pound of C60 and however much Rahr 2-row I needed to hit my OG target. Damoxemus is correct --for me, it would be about 6.5 lbs 2-row, 1 lb C60.

Was this a full or partial boil?

The medal winner was a partial boil but there is absolutely no reason not to do a full boil if you have a big enough kettle.

Thanks. Im a new brewer and am not set up for full boils yet so I wasn't sure if I was going to have to adjust the hops or anything. I have my first brew in the fermenter, with the all amarillo IPA up next when the fermenter is free, this one will be my third batch.

Default Pumpernickel Stout

Yeah, so...

I brewed this on 11/11/13, and used the original recipe except for the sub of Briess Rye LME, and I used Nottingham that I had on hand for the yeast. Wow. I got an O.G. of 1.064! What the heck. It only got down to 1.020, and on 12/11 I decided to bottle it and keep it cool. I was thinking that there were probably other non-fermentables keeping the S.G. higher. Maybe a minor mistake, since I had one bottle burst, but I've chilled it off, and I don't see any bulging caps and things look stable. With such a high S.G. and almost black color, this stuff is more of a porter or stout. With the rye malt, it tastes almost like a dark pumpernickel. One taster commented, "Where's the pickle?"

This stuff tastes absolutely amazing, has an incredible head, and spicy finish. This is a great easy recipe to experiment with. I might try this again and try it with some caraway seeds. Anyone have any experience with caraway seeds in a brewing recipe?

Cheers,
RW
