If it's too roasty... well, just call it an American Stout. We won't tattle.

I really like your recipe, looks good. I think I'm gonna try it, or something very similar for my first - Cascadian Dark - as I call it.

12 oz debittered carafaa II
4 oz chocolate malt

I mash low and use WLP001 or Pacman, and the beer drys out just fine.
Good points.

I made my first batch of BIPA/CDA with Pacman cultured from bottles/stirplated and it was awesome. Went from 1.084 to 1.018. Wish I would have had the sense to wash/reuse that yeast!

I found it gave too much of a stout like flavor when i used it, off hand i don't remember how much i used, maybe .8oz or there a bouts.
