At kegging, this beer seems almost identical to Guiness. It is light bodied and and very raosty.

Notes

MASH: This was my first Step Mash. The first step (protien Rest) went perfectly, except that I forgot to add the flaked barley. The second step was only at 140F then I had to add the flaked barley. I knew I needed to get that temp up so I kind of did a decoction. I took about a 1/4 gal. of liquid off the bottom, brought it to a boil and added it, and that seemed to do almost nothing, I then did the same with about a half gal. and that brought it to exactly 150F, where it stayed for the entire 60 min, sacc. rest. Also, my efficiency was much higher than normal, I think this was due to a higher sparge temp. My grain bed was in the 160~170 range. I think the water in the hot liquor tank was around 190F FERMENT: Cooled too low to about 50F. This caused the fermentation to start very slowly; it was about 24 hrs before I started seeing a little foam and a few bubbles. Then the morning of the second day, it had blown foam through the air lock.
