Brand spanking new Maryland brewer

Recommended Posts

I am brand spanking new to the site and from Maryland.  I've been reading a ton on here and really appreciate the amount of information it has been really helpful.  I've already bottled the American Light and should be able to drink it this week.  I did put the Irish Stout Deluxe in the keg, hoping to have that right before St. Patrick's day.  I do have 1 quick question, does the Irish stout need extra care in comparison to the American Light?

Nope.

 

We recommend 3 - 4.  3 weeks fermenting, 4 weeks carbonating and conditioning.  See links below for good info.

Thank you Rick.  I saw you post that else where on the site and am planning on doing that, I just didn't know if there was anything extra like needs to be in complete darkness, different temps anything like that.  Much appreciated

I would personally let the Irish Stout recipe bottle condition longer. My personal opinion as it will taste much better the longer you let it condition. I might suggest that you do test taste one bottle after 4-5 weeks and then compare to the rest as they condition longer. Make notes on a brew sheet for each and every batch, each and every bottle until you feel comfortable with what you are brewing, drinking, etc. With the notes you can make comparisons for years to come. Like a diary with flavor!!!

 

Salud my friend and Hoppy Brewing for years to come

Gerry, I'm going to be in NO for work in March (Pittcon).  If you are close, maybe we can meet up for a brew.  I'll be staying at Le Méridien (formerly Hotel New Orleans Downtown) on Poydras.

Sure, give me a shout when you get here. You're going to be about a mile from my place.

Nice to meet all of you, sorry I'm late to the party.  From Forest Hill Maryland, but grew up in Baltimore.  Love this town.

It's the Natty Boh guy! I remember drinking that stuff at O's games at Memorial Stadium. Camden Yards has a much better beer selection.
