This has been a big hit at our family Thanksgiving Dinner! I actually used my turkey fryer to fry a turkey too... damn it worked so well!

EDIT: Also great with a fire in the fireplace, the tree lit, baking cookies with the kids.

What SRM black roasted barley are you using? Is it Roasted Barley (300) or Black Barley (500) or something else.

I'll try to find something close to (400). Looks pretty darn good. I haven't had many holiday beers, but I liked the ones I have had. Think I will make this soon for Thanksgiving. I bottle so I like to give beer as much time in the bottle as possible. Might have to wait until X-mas.

I brewed this today. Followed recipe pretty closely except I used about 12.5 lbs of pale malt instead of 10 lbs (long story) and added 2 oz of black patent since my SRM's weren't adding up to yours. Also, I could only find 350 or 500 SRM Roasted Barely so I used 350.
