Dry hop a day or so before hitting FG for 7 days.

Tasting notes:
Turned out real nice. Underlying taste of Newcastle brown with an upfront bittering and mellow bitter finish.

Next time I brew this, I'll kick the dryhop up a bit for stronger aroma, and may even switch out the Glacier hops for something with a bit different flavor profile.

After I finish this stout that i'm brewing, I am going to brew an India Brown Ale. I'm basically using the recipe of a Newcastle, with the same hops as the Stone IPA. I'm using Magnum and Centennial hops. My brew however will be brewed with extract..i'm not ready for the all grain brewing quite yet.

Any recommendations for before I brew???
