NotesOriginally BierMuncher's Guinness clone, adapted for 2.5 gallon BIAB. Attempt number two, with more IBU's, cold steeping the roasted barley, lower mash temp, and adding a soured pint of Guinness to the boil instead of using acid malt.
Guinness was soured for 5 days, in a bowl at room temperature with a strainer over it to prevent debris. Roasted barley was steeped in a grain bag at room temperature in 1 gallon of RO water for 1 day.
Hmm, the Guinness grew a beard. Not what I wanted. Removing it from the recipe for this run. Hopefully the 3.2% of acid malt added for PH adjustment will contribute similar sourness to what I was hoping for out of the Guinness.
Name changed in reference to a famous character from the Dresden Files.
So, so happy with how this turned out. Not sure I like the cold-steeping, as it removed too much of the roastiness. However, as usual, this recipe makes for an astonishingly good Irish stout. It's all I can do not to brew this and nothing else.
