G'day brewers,


I am currently crunching numbers for a stout I am am putting down tomorrow in a brand new fermenter that just got delivered today.


Not quite sure on the recipe yet, for I have a few different yeasts on hand Danstar windsor, S-33, US-05 but will be something like this:


1 x can of Cooper's stout
1 x pouch of MJ's dark malt extract
200gm Caramalt 3 grain
200gm Crystal grain
200gm Pale choc grain
200gm Carapils grain

25gm Fuggles @ 10 min

25gm EKG @ 5 min

25gm EKG dry hop @ day 7
1 x (insert yeast here)

Fermented @ 16c for 3 weeks

ABV: 5.1%


I am getting a very high EBC on Ianh spreadsheet from what I know it is just letting me know it is going to be "black as the ace of spades", am I correct?
