On vacation for three weeks and brewing on Tuesday. I'm making a stout and an IPA. The stout is my own creation (1st brewing of this recipe) and the IPA is a tweak of Edwort's Stone IPA.

I've made the Stone clone before and it turned out great. The grain bill for the IPA is the same as Edwort's but I am changing the hops to reflect what I have on hand. Per the original recipe I am using warrior hops for bittering but I am substituting cascade for the centinnial. I've got a crap load of the cascades and I think that it will substitute fine for the centinnials. I LOVE'S THAT IPA!

As for the stout, this is the recipe that I came up with. I was going for a nice smooth and malty oatmeal stout. What do you think of this recipe? Here it is:

Sounds like some wonderful brews. I just made a similar stout but use less hops and S-04 yeast for a full bodied sweeter beer. This beer is already great with only 2 weeks in the bottle. I think yours looks really tasty also.

Thanks, I can't wait to get it going. It's been awhile since I've made a stout I'm looking forward to it.

Cheers

I think I've always had a stout in the fermenter or bottle conditioning. Its my favorite style. I think nearly a third of my brews have been stouts.
Enjoy.
