I figured I would run these by you guys before I brew this time. Does this look right for a stout?

3lbs Light Ale (LME)
4lbs Dark/Chocolate (DME)
1oz Galena (60mins)
1oz Chinook (30mins)
1oz Northwest Golding (10mins)
1tsp Irish Moss

5 Gals.
O.G. -->1.0536 O.G. = 3*36/5=21.6 (1.0216)
4*40/5=32 (1.032)
IBU -->78.87
12*.229*75/5=41.22 (60mins)
12*.175*75/5=31.50 (30mins)
5*.082*75/5=6.15 (10mins)


Cheers!! \_/

You really should steep some grains with that. It will end up being a much better beer.
Add .5 lb of chocolate malt and maybe some roasted barley to fix that.

If it is a stout, you'll need it for color anyway, the color right now is only like 11 SRM, stouts are 40.

With those hops, I'm getting almost 90 IBUs in promash.. The BU:GU ratio in your recipe is like 1.5. That is going to be one bitter mofo.

What formula do I use, because I was using that howtobrew.com stuff. I'm trying to make my own stout recipe so I don't want to use a generic, any suggestions other than the malt?

I haven't run the #'s through any calculators, but if Dude's #'s are correct on the IBU's (and I have no reason to believe they aren't) I'd cut the hops in half, although that's somewhat dependent on what style of stout your aiming for.

You need some roasted barley to make it a stout. You can steep some roasted barley with some additional malts such as Ivan suggests or start with a stout kit and add some malt extract to obtain 7lbs. Second, the hops do seem a little high. One ounce of chinook or galena for 60min should be plenty for a stout.
