I stoped by my LHBS today he said he had quite a few of the pellets and said he was going to order more. I shoulda snached some up but I didn't have cash on hand.

Out of necessity and frugality, I have switched my Guinness style brew over to Willamette and no one has complained about the switch. I think it's still wicked good.

BYO lists U.S. Golding, Whitbread Golding Variety & U.K. Progress as subs.

Also, can I steep the acid malt with similar effects? I think beer smith subed the acid malt with more carafoam. I think ill try this version, it sounds simple and good.

EDIT: I did steep 1 ounce of Acid Malt with it last week. I took my one week sample/gravity reading today and it already tasted damn close to a Guinness, I can not wait to get it bottled and carbed!

EDIT 2 Aug 11, 2008: Just bottled this today. Tasted pretty good although a bit sweet(probably because of priming sugar). Roastiness didnt come out quite as much as I think it aught to but I will reserve that final judgement in 3-4 weeks. Color seemed just a smidgen light. I can not wait to drink this beer and I think in the end it is going to be pretty damn close to Guinness.

Muncher.

As a person that wants to brew up a stout but that does not have nitro - just reg ol co2. Is the priming the keg the best way to do this?

Also those of you who have brewed this and served it with co2.. how does that taste and is it "worth" it .. so to speak?

Thanks.

It's worth it. You'll miss some of the creamy mouthfeel that nitro pushed can have, but using lower carbonation and a heavy pour will knock alot of CO2 out of solution and give you some of that missing mouthfeel.

However, you'll not get that trademark thick pill of foam with CO2 that you get from a stout faucet.

I just put 5 gallons of this in the carboy today. Except for a couple minor glitches it went well. Now for the waiting.......

I'm brewing this one today (mashing right now). I'm looking forward to having this one on tap next to my Irish Red for St. Patty's day. I changed the grain ration to reduce the Roasted Barley a little bit. I'm also using UK Phoenix hops in place of Goldings.

I just bottle my stouts and give them a heavy pour. It looks and tastes similar to the co2 cans when you pour in this manner (in my opinion)

flaked Barley .... I don't have any.
Is this used for the same reason Carafoam
or flaked wheat is? I do have those on hand.

I used Carafoam in my extract version. I think it will work just fine as both are there to add body.
