do you have a draft system able to infuse nitrogen, that is why Guiness is so creamy, If not just get a True brew Irish Stout kit, I brewed it , tasted really good. Half the hops if you want it to taste more like Guiness.

I do have a draft system. Do you know the procedure to infuse the nitrogen. Is there a ratio of nitrogen/co2?

thanks

you need a stout faucet, and a tank of beer gas (its already the right CO2/nitrogen mixture)

Try a good extract stout from AHS. Thier recipes will show you another alternative to add that creamy smooth body you are looking for without taking such a big first step like a NO2 system. They have great step by step directions that really opened my eyes. Here is a stout link...

It's 75% nitrogen 25% CO2 just in case. Also you should call around to see if you can find someone to fill a tank. Some places put it in CO2 tanks with CGA 320 threads and some people put it in nitrogen/high pressure tanks with 580 threads.

ERROR - All Grain/Partial Mash recipe contains no mash steps

Add the Gypsum to the cold water when starting the boil. This softenes the water and prepares it for the grains.

Pulled off primary at 4 days with a gravity of 1.014. Taste was sweet - perhaps longer primary was warrented
