Nice grain bill. Out of interest, did you cap the mash with the dark malts or mash all together, full duration?

i added the dark grains at the beginning of the mash. Did a glucan rest with the flaked barley.

Cheers. My first AG stout was a Guinness clone. I messed up the brew and had something tasting very bitter/acrid, I couldn't drink it and had to tip it after 12 months. Had 2 pints of Guinness draught on the weekend and the same taste was detectable but every so slightly. I'm going to have to revisit the brew at some time. I'm thinking about substituting some black malt for chocolate.

this is tanins, they come from the dark malts, you use dehusked roasted barley, to avoid that!! or use simple grain bill: 70% pale malt, 20% flaked barley and 10% roasted barley. With this bill, you cant go wrong!! OG:1046, Fg:1010 and 45IBUs!!

Steeping grains in cold liquour rather than mashing can achieve the same thing. Think of mashing dark grains as like holding coffee on a hot plate for an hour.

It seems counter intuitive to drink Stout when the weather is balmy but it can be lovely at "fridge" temps on a hot day. Very popular in the Caribbean and parts of Africa.
