FERMENTATION SCHEDULE

7-10 days at 18 deg c. Then raise at 1 deg c per day until you reach 21 deg c.
You must ensure that you have a consistent FG for 3 days before your beer can be deemed finished.
For the best results give your beer some extra days in the fermentation vessel so that the yeast can clean up after itself.
There really is no rush!!

  1. Loving the videos David. Laughing at the "minus my hairy arm" text that appeared during the clip. Im ploughing through your clips during being on furlough and feel like im picking up hints and tips with each one i watch. Im going to join facebook just to get access to your group as i feel this will be great for me.

    Keep up the good work. Very helpful to a newbie like me

  2. I looked at numberless brewing youtube videos. David is in my view the best in making brewing recipe videos. This is; The background of the style, how the beer is /build up ( describing possible variation you can use/do ), the typical things that you should think of brewing this type, the actual recipe and how to do it and watch outs. ( incl the great feature to have the recipe in notes for the video . Just great…) . In short he makes brewing easier . Thanks for that! Going to brew this stout when I’m back from vacation in 1.5w. Cheers ! 🍻

  3. A great video thanks and thanks for the contact number for cork Irish base malt
    With regards to using flaked barley I tend to use flaked oats and just a little flaked barley my is an oatmeal stout and I serve it on nitro your video was very informative cheers
    Ps I sold my grain father I like to brew 10 gallon batches

  4. Hi David, I've made this a few times with great results, thanks for sharing. However, I'm having trouble finding a good source for setting-up this stout on 30% CO2 / 70% N2. I have a Kegerator with the ability to run two different gases across four beer taps e.g I'm running CO2 on three taps and the Nitrogen mix on the fourth tap, for the Irish Stout. I have bought a stout faucet but am having trouble pouring a decent stout, despite being able to pour great beers on all other taps. Do you have any guidance or tips on setting-up CO2/N2 mix? Carbonation levels? Gas pressures? Any thoughts would help. Thanks again. Brad

  5. Hi David, great video! I'd like to brew this recipe but I'm a little confused by how much water to start with. As I understand it, 20L is the finished batch volume for fermenting, but what would be the starting water volume pre-mash?? Maybe I have it wrong and 20L is the starting volume?

    Thanks!

  6. Great video as always. I’m a first time home brewer trying to learn as much as possible before my first brew day. I’m having trouble finding information on how to force carbonate my Guinness clone stout into my keg with my beer gas set up ? Any suggestions how to get this done properly if I don’t have a CO2 tank or system ? I’ve been serving Guinness on my nitro tap and keg prior to wanting to try home brewing

  7. Hello David, I just recently discovered your channel. Great content. Thanks for your lessons into this realm. I do have a question though! Would you use RO water then just add calcium and carbonate? Or do you just use your local water and add more cal and carb? Probably a dumb question but thanks for your time. Cheers!

  8. Great video, David.
    I'm among those who really appreciate your vids.
    I was wondering of a little WhatsApp would spoil my stout. I'll tale your explanation as a No.
    Greetings from Córdoba, Argentina

  9. I'm getting more adventurous now and made this today and it's currently fermenting in my new (another first) GF conical fermenter and modified freezerchiller.
