I've made 35 batches of beer over the past 11 months, but one thing I've not done yet is a regular ol' stout. I've found myself craving the stuff, but my stouts are all bruisers or have adjuncts. Coffee, Imperial, Oatmeal, Cherry, etc. The one thing I haven't done is a medium-gravity (1.055-1.065 or so) normal old dry stout...and I've found myself really wanting some lately. I prefer roastier stouts, but unfortunately, I keep ending up with "harsh" notes because I overdo the dark malts in the quest for roastiness.
So, what's your favorite dry stout recipe (AG or PM)?
