Brewed this one out in the cold so I could have it ready to keg and drink on St. Patrick's Day (week). AWESOME! Only a few drunk Irish freinds over and it was gone! -coachG
Pretty tasty stout! Came out very nice. Good creamy thick head and lots of body. Nice dry finish. A real winner! Thanks!
Nice recipe! I've noticed that allowing the primary fermenter (mine is glass) to be exposed to indirect daylight results in a more floral, less dry stout. I've brewed batches in both total darkness (basement) and indirect daylight (kitchen corner). So far, people seem to prefer the indirect daylight batches. Adjusting the light exposure can produce distinctly different tasts. Great base recipe!
This is a very, very average kit...I had it in primary 2 weeks, secondary for 4 weeks, and then kegged for another two weeks before drinking...Its very average...I've done easily 40-50 kits too and this is not my first by any means...I love their stuff usually, this one was the mini, but this kit just isn't up to par...I'd give it a 2 out of of 5 rating....I would pick another stout.. Austin is almost always dead on awesome, just not this time...
I didn't particularly like stouts until I brewed this one! Very light and dry and very drinkable. I did the all grain recipe and was not dissapointed. A great beer and mild such that it also appeals to females (who generally like a lighter beer). I will brew this one again!
