I just simplified my American Stout recipe, and it looks very similar.

Maris Otter
Chocolate Malt
Crystal 40L
Roasted Barley

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  :P

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


Boil Time: 90 min
Batch Size: 5.5 gallons (fermentor volume)   
Boil Size: 7.52 gallons
Boil Gravity: 1.045 (recipe based estimate)

Original Gravity: 1.061
Final Gravity: 1.015
 ABV (standard): 6.13%
