This recipe is inspired by Porterhouse's fantastic Wrasslers XXXX Stout, said to be based on a recipe favored by Michael Collins himself. I've had Wrasslers on draught in Dublin and in bottles here in the US, and this is very similar, though a little drier than I remember for the original. By no means do I claim to have brewed a clone, just a great stout in the same spirit. Straddling the line between dry Irish and foreign export stouts, if you drink your coffee black and your espresso straight, this one's for you.

This recipe is for 5.25 gallons at 75% brewhouse efficiency. Adjust the numbers for your own particular system and the AA% of your hops.

8.0 oz Rice Hulls (0 SRM) 4.5%
6.5 lbs Maris Otter (4 SRM) 59.1%
2.0 lbs Flaked Barley (1.7 SRM) 18.2%
1.5 lbs Simpsons Roasted Barley (550 SRM) 13.6%
8.0 oz Simpsons Black Malt (550 SRM) 4.5%

Hop schedule
1.00 oz Nugget (12.6% AA) @ 60 min
1.00 oz Galena (10.1% AA) @ 30 min
1.00 oz East Kent Goldings (4.7% AA) @ 10 min


Single infusion, 152F for 60 min
