Taste NotesSo simple, yet so perfect! Medium body, lots of coffee and chocolate complimented by fruity esters from the yeast. Finished nice and dry so you want another sip. I probably bled too much pressure or under-filled the polypin. There was no carbonation, but I brought it to a club meeting on 3/24/2016 and everyone really enjoyed the beer. I got more of the yeast character and a little less of the roast at the warmer temp.
"One of my favorite stock beers - I always keep a keg on hand. Rich flavored dry Irish Stout that is very simple to make. Perfect every time!"
NotesUpped estimated SG to give myself some margin for error if efficiency was low. Flask was not working, kept throwing stir bar. Added pure O2 to starter and shaked intermittently. Should have had more than enough healthy cells.
Mashed at 152F and held nicely. 1.040 at 74F. Starting volume was on track after adding 1600ML starter.
Racked 1/23 to harvest yeast.
Packaged 2/15/2016. Racked 1g into a polypin with 0.33 oz corn sugar, 3g into a keg with .99 oz corn sugar, and 1g into bottles with 0.66 oz corn sugar. Initially wanted 1.5 vol/co2, added too much sugar to polypin and keg after misreadin c02 calculator. Should end up at 2.1. Will monitor and bleed polypin as needed.
FG 1.010 at 70F. Samples tasted and looked awesome. Had the Guinness twang without any acid malt or soured beer blended in. Gorgeous white head.
"A very simple all grain beer that produces a great Guiness-style taste every time. So light in body that I have even made black and tans with it using a full body pale ale in the bottom of the glass.
