Been experiementing for awhile and recently upgraded to a full two-stage fermentation system with wort chiller and a kegging system. Just finished my very first Irish Stout. Just a touch sweeter than Guinness, and slightly less bittter. At 13.7% alcohol by volume, its 4 times as strong with a nice creamy head. Easy drinking and easy to get drunk! Going to let it condition a bit longer, probably until St. Patrick's Day. My next batch is an Irish Red, my first all grain/no extract brew, so I'm a bit apprehensive of that. At only 6% ABV, I should be able to condition that one for a shorter period and tap them both for one hell of a St. Patrick's Day. 10 Gallons of quality home brew. Anyone else brew your own?
