I have MO, Victory and 2-row....
what method would you suggest for the base grain?

1. MO
2. 2-Row and roasting
3. 2-row and victory
Personally I'm a fan of number 2 mostly because I enjoy the toasting process and brighter flavors.

It was was an Irish stout. No crystal. I shouldn't have said it was similar, just meant a very sessionable dark/roasty ale. The dry stout is much more rich and roasty than the mild, but both are great.

By the way, I'm not a fan of dry Irish stouts and this won me over.

It was actually the AHS recipe for Guinness. It didn't taste anything like guinness. However, in my opinion, it was a lot better.

Recipe to come in just a sec.

Same here, I've been waiting for the weather to warn up a bit but I'm getting antsy, haven't brewed in 3 weeks!

The kettle burner will keep you warm while you brew!

Just brewed this. I added a little roast barley and used WGV instead of fuggles. Sample looked and tasted great.

I have a local competition coming up that I wanted to brew a Vienna Lager for but unfortunately, life got in the way and there was no way it would be ready in time. I'm going to brew up your Mild recipe because A) It looks freaking delicious and B) I can turn this sucker around in two weeks if I really need to push it!

I'm using WYEAST #1968 (London ESB) but otherwise stuck with your original recipe.

Just brewed this for the second time. Looking forward to it yet again. I also tried out my new "ghetto 4-tier system" to try out a fly sparge. Got about 85% efficiency!

Here it is:

The fourth tier would be my fermentor on the ground. And yes, I had the garage door open half way to vent.
