I have been brewing beer for a few months and I want to try to do something special for my wife. She has told me for years about her trip to Ireland and how great the Guinness beer is there. My wife does not even like most beer and thinks that the import Guinness taste's too bitter and too thick and the head is not creamy enough. I have never had the pleasure of a trip to Ireland but I would love to make the beer she remembers, I am not quite up to doing an all grain brew yet but I would love to here if anyone knows a good recipe using extract and steeping grains that can make a beer close to what my wife remembers. I have found one or two recipes that say they will make this beer but there is nothing like hearing form folks that have made and tasted the beer. Thank you all for any advice you can give.
