Here is a pint of my ChocolOATe Stout. This is 1 week in bottle and tastes great already and is moderately carbed so far...

Wife did a blind side-by-side tasting against a well known commercial Porter (I know, different to a Stout - but not by much and not that wife can discern) and mine came out on top!! Pretty good...!

looks great!! give it time to carb up and it'll be even better. There isn't much difference between a porter and stout so don't worry about that. in fact, you could enter this into a comp as a robust porter or oatmeal porter and it'd do great

i brewed this one yesterday and i could not believe the smell. its chocolatey malty caramel, i can go on and on
really looking forward to this one especially after the success i had with mysticmead's irish red ale.

hard core lads who would down 10 pints of guinness or smithwicks preferred my irish red ale over the established irish ale, commercial stuff!

i have made this on the 3rd of october and smelt and tasted amazing. i got vigorous fermentation very quickly and within 3 days boom... stoped.
the room is at 19-20 degrees, the FGis at 1014 and did not move any further. my OG was 1052
can i go ahead, prime and bottle
i know mysticmead suggest 4 weeks but is it ready ? will the beer benefit from sitting for so long on the yeast cake?
thank you

if it has dropped clear (as best as you can tell on a stout) go ahead and prime and bottle.

I would give at least another week for it to clear and for the yeast to clean up. Personally for porter's, stout's and Belgian Dark's I allow at least 4 weeks to get consistent taste.

I prefer to go 4 weeks on all my beers at the very least.. others like going 2 weeks.. some let it go until it stops fermenting.. crash cooling and finings can make a beer crystal clear in 48 hours (bio-fine clear will clear any beer/cider/mead/wine in 48 hours). If zamo27 feels comfortable with it being 2 weeks old and its clear.. bottling won't hurt a thing. after all, he'll be letting it condition in the bottle for another few weeks

I'm a very impatient person by character but I'm sticking to the advice above
4 weeks then bottle
I'm still sipping on your raging red ale and that puts a smile on my face all the time.
As the saying goes.. Good things happen to those who wait, let prove this 😇
