Dry Stout


This has got to be the best stout I have ever made. Since I have made the move to all-grain, this will be the only stout recipe for me. The flavour is dry and what you would expect from a stout. The rye and the cara-pils has made it very thick, just like Guiness. If I have to adjust anything, I would add more hops...say about another 1/2 oz of Fuggles for the 1 hour boil. This stout is thick, very dark, overly smooth and won't stay in my glass for very long.


  • 8 lbs 2 row malt
  • 1.1 lbs flaked rye
  • 1/2 lb cara-pils malt
  • 3/4 lb roast barley
  • 1/4 lb black patent malt
  • 1/4 lb chocolate malt
  • 1/4 lb crystal malt [80L]
  • 3 oz Fuggles leaf hops [4.2%- for 60 min. ->12.6 HBU]
  • 1 oz Goldings leaf hops [5.2%- for 10 min.->0 HBU]
  • pinch Irish moss
  • WYeast London Ale[1028]--starter made from new packet
