One Armed Stout help...
« on: February 10, 2011, 05:12:32 PM »
Looking do an American Stout this weekend. I've never done one. Our club as done Oatmeal Stouts in the past but it's too sweet for me. Looking for a dry to semi-dry roasty stout with a little body and creaminess. Somewhere between Guinness EFS and an Oatmeal Stout. Also trying to keep it simple. I have some Black Patent, Debittered Black, Pale Chocolate and Carafa Special I & II but this is what I have come up with. Haven't decided what yeast to use yet. I'm adding gypsum and doing an acid rest because the pH of by water is 7.7. What do you stout experts think?

I have one kinda like that but no flaked adjuncts and a Munich base. The cara foam really helped with a creamy head. Flaked barlet or oats never worked for me. This beer is very good.
