Hi every one,
Yes, Im harassing you guys and girls again for some recipe critiques and suggestions ..LOL My 1st stout recipe I formulated yesterday. Recipe Goals: 1:
Dark(not Tar like excessive) +Roasty+Smooth+Creamy+Semi Chewey like Rasputin Stout2:
Not Bitter or ashey or overly thick (see:1)Grist reasons: 1:
Golden promise: mellow wort, with a sweet, clean flavor Not Overly bready (I like malty but can be done excessively)2.
Crystal 60: sweet+caramel and borders very slightly to rasins + figish taste but not too much 3.
American Chocolate: Nutty,Chocolaty+slight Smoky+Roastyness and Color4.
Flaked Barley: to provide the creamy texture without the perceived oilyness that OATS gives 5.
Roasted Barley: Color adjustment and that smoky roast flavor (for me too much Roasted barley takes on a grapey rootbeerish flavor) 6.
Black malt: Roasty dark finish and too provide some color with out using too much roasted barley (see:5)
*Note: Since i have no clue how to adjust water. My plan was to use a mix of spring water and RO water and maybe proportion my Ro water and spring water to account for PH...?
By the way, I do have the paper strips for PH checking (I Know I need meter, next purchase)Were do i need to have my PH levels for this beer?
and what would be the simplest way for me to change it if I had too with the fact that all i know about water is that you drink it ..LOL Recipe formulation:
Please critique and suggest and Why you would change it
