I've decided that I want to do an Imperial Stout. I want to use the recipe from the Joy Of Homebrewing, but Papazian calls for 6.6lbs of Muntons Old Ale Kit, which is hopped. I just don't like the idea of using a hopped extract. Does anyone know what malts, and how much hops I should replace it with?
Up next: Big Brew Off competition between me and Kaptain Karma as one team, and my two roommates as another--We'll be brewing Pale Ales with specifications on malts, hops, and total yeild to see who's version is better (and to end up with ten total gallons of great beer).
Also up soon: Belgian Dubbel
Primary: Grampa's Woodshed Apple Smoked Porter
Secondary: Zombiefoot California Common, Chocolate Strong Porter
Drinking: Seamus O'Drunkagan Irish Red, Humble Pie Imperial Stout, Capricorn IPA
