How can I salvage this? Trying to get my St Paddy's day ducks in a row.
That sucker's gonna have some BODY!

You could double everything else (2-row, Roasted Barley, Acid) and blend it thoroughly, then divide it in half. They you can have a St. Patty's Day stout and a Memorial Day stout.

Also, consider that Briess Roasted Barley is light...about 350L. Briess Black Barley (500L) is better to get the color you want. I wish Briess would change its naming procedures...very misleading. I used the 350L and ended up with a brown ale instead of a black.

I might just go ahead and brew it as-is.

I'm thinking about ordering some more 2 row and black barley now. What do y'all think about 2 recipes of:

6 lb 2 row
2.125 lb flaked barley
.625 lb roasted barley
.75 lb black barley
.125 lb acidulated malt

I think this recipe is supposed to use ~300srm roasted barley, but I've made it with 500srm as well and I liked it better darker.

Any chance I can brew this baby and have it ready for St Patty's day? 1 month?

You can do it, but it won't be at its peak. Just make sure to make a good sized starter and use yeast nutrient and give it a blast of O2 or really good aeration. If you are trying to rush it, you want your yeast in the best of health.

Brewed this up on Friday, but forgot to cut the hops in half along with the rest of the ingredients for a 5 gallon batch. Oops! Beersmith is saying it's going to be 60 IBU's. Guess that means I just need to brew it again.

Black IPA? Guinness is pretty dry, so that should be pretty bitter. Let us know how it comes out.

Will do. I'm quite interested to see how the bitterness will taste.

Same here...just tapped the keg and I've got a roasty brown ale because my LHBS gave me Briess Roasted Barley instead of Black Barley. Fortunately, it tastes great.

Moral of the story--watch them when they fill your order instead of hitting the sampling bar (my LHBS has 6 on tap at all times) and shooting the breeze with the other brewers.
