Well, here it is, the Dark-n-Scary:



The guys I play poker with once a month all agreed that it tastes even better than the local microbrew it is trying to recreate! Only problem is we drank almost all of it! Time to get another batch of it going, I guess!

Have you put it in the database?

Don't forget, the more you drink the more you can brew.
Gotta love this hobby

Hey Jester,

I just have a few questions. What kind of yeast did you use? Do you top off the wort to 5.25 gallons in the fermenter, or ferment out the 2.5? When i plug the ingredients into pro-mash at 2.5 gallons it says the SG would be 1.123!

efreem - topped off to 5 gal. 2.5 would have been a pretty sturdy brew!

yeast was safale us-56

and this stuff is now GONE! It lasted through one night of poker (5 guys) and a St. Paddy party and all 5 gallons have vanished! The crowing moment had to be when a guy at the party who has been brewing AG for years thought my brew was the commercial and the store bought was the homebrew! Heh heh heh

Visited the LHBS and have ingredients for a second round. Crap, now I gotta wait another month and a half!
