Beer Style: Dry Stout  (13A)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 US gallons

Dry Stout


The following Guinness Clone recipe is excellent, although next time I will use all British malts. By the way, N2 is essential for two things: that extra creamy head and a particularly sweet head, neither of which has been accomplished when I used just CO2.
