I got the recipe from here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f68/extr...-stout-191351/
It's a Simple Stout by Justibone.
I used Mr. Beer fermenter.
3 lbs of Dark DME
1lbs of Dark Brown Sugar
.5oz of Hallertauer
1 packet (11g) of Nottingham
My LHBS doesn't carry Muntons, which the recipe calls for. He asked what I was brewing and suggested Nottingham.
I warmed up the water, then added 3lbs of DME.
60min - added .25oz Hallertauer
45min - added .25oz Hallertauer
15min - added 1lbs of brown sugar.
Cooled down wort and pitched the yeast.
I wanted a less hoppy taste - that's why I used less hops.
His recipe calls for a 3 gallon batch size. After I put the fermenter, I realized that Mr. Beer is about 2.1 gallons.
With the changes in the hop schedule, the yeast, and using less water... What the heck did I just brew?? (So confuzed...
Any thoughts would help me not be so confuzzzzed.. i.e. taste, abv, style, etc
