Genius Stout Clone

Postby Scott » Wed 24 Dec, 2014 9:43 pm

Made this one hoping that it would be ready for Christmas. BOY is it ready. This is a lovely pint of stout, enough like Guinness to give a familiar taste but different enough to offer a different dimension. I'm not really sure how to describe a stout, all I can say is that it's a lovely drink. The head is coming up really thick and creamy, exactly like it should.

Really impressed with this, not really a lot I can tweak to make it better although I wouldn't mind having it a touch stronger.

Diary is here
Recipe is here

Serving at 8psi from a Corny keg. Think it MAY need a little more gas at this time of year, will see how the head holds up when I'm finished :D

It's a really good pint Mick, I can't believe how well it came out..... especially for my first attempt. I have some areas to improve on, but there always is :)
