Remember Drew's point about brewing on the ones....
I just simplified my American Stout recipe, and it looks very similar.
The original recipe included .25 lb of Black Patent, which gave it some astringency that I didn't care for.
Ok so this is what The Recipe is going to be:
How I imagine/ formualted this Stout recipe:
Me: I love a strong roasty, dark coffee... "BUT I add coffee Milk to it".. to soften the roast and sweeten some. I am not one who drinks coffee straight up.. Yea I know Im a wuss
So in my brain I aimed for this bearing in mind how I like my coffee: Dark, Roasty, some nuances of chocolate & nutty notes in back ground with some sweetness/ toffee caramel from the Bairds carastan malt to balance out the 500L and Chocolate Roast and the Bitterness of the Hops
