My last brew. Steve's Stout
« on: May 27, 2009, 01:06:06 PM »
    Well, my last batch of beer is complete, it's in the keg and ready to pour.
  The Stout that I made taste really good. The FG is 1.030, the color is dark but it's not the deep black like I was expecting. Maybe I'll try some carafa 3 for extra color and flavor next time.

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions with the speciality malts, that really got me doing some research into the differant malts and what they can do for the beer. I used small amounts, of the different malts so I could give myself a point of reference for my next brew. Learning how the different malts effect the character of a beer is a lot of fun.

Thanks again,
stevemwazup.  Please take a look at my final recipe and feel free to leave any comments.
