Dear Reader, I have't posted for a few days, i have been doing alot of research, many hours infact, the guinness figures that eg. Michael Jackson(not the singer lol)are way way out, Dave line figures for the hops are not too far out(but still the wrong hops), i have built a recipe and it break all the figures that anyone has come up with. All i can say in this question and time is the roasted Barley is hell of a percentage more than every ones 10%. Richard (bopper)

Dear Reader, I haven't posted for a few days, I have been doing alot of reasearch, many hours infact, into building my own flux capacitor. You know, the thing that makes time travel possible.

Draught Guinness is the boy! I have spent about 2 days researching,i have got lots of info... Guinness gets it bitterness from the hops used and NOT sour guinness, they used to ship the guinness which needed loads of hops to keep it stable and fresh. 70%,20 and 10% is no where near correct as i have brewed, iv'e used 12% roasted and not enough, but i used nearly 25% flaked and that was ok.

There is no way the draught Guinness served in the US has 100 IBUs. 100 IBUs in a 1.039 OG brew would be way out of balance, even for a dry stout. Just my opinion of course.

Guinness Clone

Classification: stout, Irish stout, dry stout, Guinness clone, all-grain
Source: Nick Hiams (oleum@spuddy.mew.co.uk), HBD #1790, July 25, 1995

Dave Line's book "Brewing Beers Like Those You Buy" has a recipe for Guinness. It is based on the bottled version which has a higher og than the "draught" version.
It is suggested that a yeast starter is made from a bottle of Guinness. As you probably know Guinness is bottle conditioned still (in the stuff available in pubs at least). This is supposed to be a very good strain for all top fermenting English beers too.
This recipe is supposed to give between og 1045 to og 1053 depending upon efficiency.
The Guinness available on draught in pubs in England is a "keg" beer which has an og of around 1036 (Dilute the above to 6 galls). It is unusual and different to the bottled version in that it is injected with Nitrogen instead of Carbon Dioxide. This has been tried with "a remarkable degree of success" by the author of the book. Personally I prefer the bottled stuff.
I tried the recipe about five years ago and remember it as being a very good imitation. I served it from a barrel as a cask conditioned ale (is this what the Irish version is like?). All of the beers in the book that I have tried or friends have are very true to the originals and I can thoroughly recommend it.
Ingredients: (for 5 gallons)
7 pounds, Crushed pale malt
2 pounds, Flaked barley
1 pound, crushed roast barley
1 ounce, bullion hops (60 mins)
3 ounces, northern brewer hops (60 mins)

1 tsp. CaCO3 (if you are in a soft water area)
yeast starter made from a bottle of Guinness
Specifics:
OG: 1045-1053


Mash @ 67C for 90 mins using 1.5 qts/lb. Sparge to collect 4 gal, boil 60 min with all hops then cool and top off to 5 gal.

I agree, Guinness isn't very bitter at all, in my opinion. Yet, I havent had any experience with nitrogen in my home brews, so i can't say if nitrogen helps smooth out the bitterness.

Interesting... look at the percentages there chief:

7 pounds crushed pale malt
2 pounds flaked barley
1 pound roast barley
-----------------------
10 pounds total, ergo...

70% crushed pale malt
20% flaked barley, and the real kicker,
10% roasted barley.

Booyah.

The hop schedule, of course, is totally wrong. 4oz. of hops for 60 minutes?? That's just plain wrong.

OK fine Richard. You said your recipe (with the 100 IBUs and 17% roasted barley) was for Draught Guinness, yet the Dave Line recipe you just posted is for the bottled version - which we all know is not the same beast. So which is it?

Don't know why I'm bothering with this thread... I'd rather drink a Shakespeare Stout anyday over Guinness.

I just plugged the hop schedule into Promash and it comes in at a whopping 147 IBU's. Uh huh..yeah, that must be right.

What the hell..let's go with 80% pale malt, 25% flaked barley and 20% roasted barley, and 4oz of hops to get us to 147IBU, boil for 27 hours, ferment in 2 days, and drink till you get the sh*ts. Sounds like a plan.

Serve warm and gas it up with acetylene for a really good time.

Dear Dave I will let you know how it turns out, like i said i tried over 11% of Roasted barley before and was't dark enough and used 1.50 oz's of Northern brewer's hops which are simular to Northdown, was,t right(good Murphy's Clone!) LOL.. 17% of rosted barley at 575.0 SRM to give about 50 SRM.. One of hops used in guinness originally was bullion, but no longer available, so i have used galena and used northdown, which is used by guinness.Richard (bopper)

Maybe and I do mean maybe if you were to put in 1oz of the of the Northdown hops and smoke the other two it might taste like Guinness. However, I am still doubting it.

are you sure 100IBUs is not for the guinness "essense"? The concentrated stuff they then blend locally with a smaller bland beer? (according to the article I read by one of the former brewers of the dublin brewery?)

I agree that it's dark, but the IBUs- sorry.

>"Guinness gets it bitterness from the hops used and NOT sour guinness"

In that same article, it sounded like they brewer would throw a punch at anyone who said guinness was sour. I don't think they intentionally sour their mash and it probably has more to do with the water.

Dave Line, LIke Charlie P., did a lot forn homebrewing back in his day, but he was off his nut on a lot of stuff, too. For one, he firmly maintained that you couldn't brew beer if you had pets, because every batcvh would be infected. Without denigrating Line, I certainly would be suspect of his advice. His recipes were also notoriously whacked out, with most of them assuming over 90% efficiency.

Dear Denny Dave Line's recipe most probley was,t a even 80%, but i think the hoping was ok, cuz the sour taste from guinness comes from the bullion hops, which i think now are unobtainable, so i know guinness uses an a american hop, which is now galena.(im in the UK by the way) Richard (bopper)

Okay...

Richard? (Bopper) (you who resides in the UK). Why are you obsessing over Guiness. If you want a beer that tastes EXACTLY like Guiness your best bet is to brew something like Guiness and blend it with real Guiness. It's what they do. Guiness does not use American hops. Guiness does not have IBUs in excess of 100. Taste a Guiness.

In regards to the flux capacitor, you need at least 20% to get the proper jiggawattage. It helps if you have a crazy guy standing on a clocktower with an IPA.

Guinness used Bullion hops, which is a fact, but now they use Galena, cuz Bulion is dying breed, IBU is over 100 due to the sour taste of Galena hops(and others), thats why guinness has that sour taste. I like to get everything 100%, thats me! Richard (bopper)

Well, I bought some guinness and it's raining in front of me in a guinness pint glass... What does Bryan think? Let's taste and find out...

almost opaque, but still had a deep mohogany color.. maybe 28-34'L

IBU's? Wow- this stuff is water. I love(d) guinness, but this is watery. It does finish kinda bitter. But no more bitter than my Amber which is 38 IBU's. My own stout is 45.6 IBUs.

Sorry, No way this is anywhere close to 100 IBUs. 50 at best.

From the former brewer in dublin
"In Ireland draft and bottled Guinness are brewed with pale malt, torrified barley, and roast barley for 4.2%. In Germany... Torrified and roast is replaced with roasted malt and is 5%. Guinness in Australia and Africa are brewed with GFE (Guinness Flavor Extract).

Beer critics comment on a special flavor characteristic. Some call it bite, tart, or sour which Dempsey frowned upon. He did admit that the blending in of mature high gravity beer gives the product a higher level of acidification which gives G Stout an extremely delicate acidity bite that is different from the hop and roast bitterness flavors."

Rob- I've got 3 cans left, and I bought 2 other commercials for tomorrow.

Richard? Torrified barley was a quote from the brewer. Either he's a liar or you're mistaken. I'd hate to call anyone a liar without proof. By the way, you quoted torrified wheat, not torrified barley.

Heath, absolutely let him brew it the way he wants to. But I don't want people who happen to come across the thread to actually think that his recipe is a proper guinness clone. Oops- Gary said the same thing.

The bopper isn't my favorite person on the forum, but I dont have anything against him. I think a lot of his opinions are biased or just plain wrong, and I'll be here to correct him when needed. He hasn't personally attacked anyone that I've seen, so why go that route- after all, the facts are on our side.

Lastly, unless someone has a nitro mix and faucet, I don't think you can even attempt a "proper guinness clone." You can fake it, but that's not what I'd consider a proper clone.

My figures are dam pretty near...like i said before i used nearly 12%(17% is needed to get an SRM of 50) roasted barley and no where near dark enough(good Murphy's clone)The hop rating is very very high according to secret sources, that why guinness has that sour taste!Dave Line recipe uses 4oz,s(US 6 gals and UK 5 gals) of hops and people has brewed this with a great deal of success.Richard (bopper)

I'm not positive, but the acids in hops are not the same as the acids that say make a Berliner Weisse sour. Bitter is not the same as sour. Besides, Guiness isn't sour, perhaps tangy or slightly metallic, but hardly sour.

Dear Eric, Thats just might work! but guinness only use 3 types of grain, i know there brewing has change over the years, they have cut down on the Flaked Barley %(used by guinness 25% to 30% flaked), most probley to save money.I think for the guinness export what they do is add sugar, because they say the strong abv % is sweet.Ginnness uses hops for ireland(northdown) and from america, they used to be bullion but no longer available, so they use galena. Everyone knows guinness is about 50 SRM, to achive this you need 17% of roasted barley at 575 SRM.Dave Line's recipe has been brewed and tested with 3.00oz of Northern brewer hops and 1.00oz of bullion hops, i have used 12% roasted barley and it is't no where near dark enough.Boil and mash for 90 mins is a fact.S0 this is how i have come up with this recipe.

Richard, I've been trying to stay out of this lately, but some of your statements beg refutation. I don't care what you think, hops WILL NOT make a beer sour. To maintain otherwise its to show your lack of understanding of brewing process and the ingredients that go into that. How do hops make beer sour? Why is flaked barley more expensive? How can the addition of sugar, if they use it, make a beer sweeter when we all know sugar is 100% fermentable and makes a beer drier, not sweeter? Now, there's nothing wrong with being uniformed unless you choose not to learn. That appears to be the course you've chosen, despite our best efforts to help you out.

O.k..
Ive heard enough of this.
Here is a recipe from Charlie P's book. And it tastes like Guiness without the sourness.
Ive made this one. This is an Extract recipe.

Guiness Clone
3.3 Ibs John Bull hopped Dark Syrup
4 Ibs of M&F Dark DME
3/4 Ib of 60L British Crystal
1/3 Ib of Roasted Barley
1/3 Ib of Black Patent
Bittering Hops: 1 1/2 oz of Northern Brewer :14 IBU's
Finishing Hops: 1/2 oz of Fuggles
8 tsp of Gypsum
Wyeast Irish

So my guess is around 30-40 IBU's. Taking a guess with the hopped extract. No way 100 IBU's.
By the way ive drank it in England.

And yes there is Black Patent in it.
No your wrong. 1 1/2 oz for bitterness.
1/2 oz for finishing. Thats not alot of hops. You dont know what your talking about.
Your the one saying 100 IBU's.

Oh yeah, so, we had three brewers try guinness cans (with the widget) yesterday and we all agree.. about 28-34 SRM and 38ish IBUs. It tasted less watery since i left it at cellar temp overnight.
Guinness Extra (bottle, no widget) was a bit more bitter (and better tasting), but still nowhere near 100 ibus.

So OK I have 4 gigabyte of ram in my comp.... Guinness is heavily hopped and will not convince me its not! Ok i might be a few IBU out, but im the closest to this recipe than anyones ever been. I have seen some ridiculous recipes for guinness. So the old formula is 70% pale malt, 20%flaked barley and 10%roasted barley, with 1.50oz of nortern brewer hops(boil and mash for 90 mins),like said iv'e tried nearly 12% roasted with 23% flaked, it was better but not enough.Dave Line recipe has brewed lots of times and no one said it was to hoppy, so my thinking is the shear amount of roasted barley masks alot of ibu. Richard (bopper) P.S many people has tried for a guinness clone, but i bet its no where near guinness and they said it is! BECAUSE THEY WANT TO IMPRESS ...I have't brewed a guinness, i brewed for a guinness,but dammed good Murphy's irish stout clone.

As I found out this weekend, you definitely want to drink it warm- the difference is amazing.

Though I fondly recall a stout tasting at my LHBS. We had about 20 stouts: 2/3 commercial and 1/3 homebrewed. At the bottom of the ranks was guinness.

Is that 20% cigarette butts and 10% used oil rags in your recipe? I'm sure you could get 50 SRM depending on how saturated your oil rags are...

A.E Housmans A Shropshire Lad

Why, if ’tis dancing you would be, 15
There’s brisker pipes than poetry.
Say, for what were hop-yards meant,
Or why was Burton built on Trent?
Oh many a peer of England brews
Livelier liquor than the Muse, 20
And malt does more than Milton can
To justify God’s ways to man.
Ale, man, ale’s the stuff to drink
For fellows whom it hurts to think:
Look into the pewter pot 25
To see the world as the world’s not.
And faith, ’tis pleasant till ’tis past:
The mischief is that ’twill not last.
Oh I have been to Ludlow fair
And left my necktie God knows where, 30
And carried half way home, or near,
Pints and quarts of Ludlow beer:
Then the world seemed none so bad,
And I myself a sterling lad;
And down in lovely muck I’ve lain, 35
Happy till I woke again.
Then I saw the morning sky:
Heigho, the tale was all a lie;
The world, it was the old world yet,
I was I, my things were wet, 40
And nothing now remained to do
But begin the game anew.

If w're talking Guinness, then maybe a classic irish diddy

Gather up the pots and the old tin cans
The mash, the *CORN*, the barley and the bran.
Run like the devil from the excise man
Keep the smoke from rising, Barney.

Keep your eyes well peeled today
The excise men are on their way
Searching for the mountain tay
In the hills of Connemara.

Swinging to the left, swinging to the right
The excise men will dance all night
Drinkin' up the tay till the broad daylight
In the hills of Connemara.

A gallon for the butcher and a quart for John
And a bottle for poor old Father Tom
Just to help the poor old dear along
In the hills of Connemara.

Stand your ground, for it's too late
The excise men are at the gate.
Glory be to Paddy, but they're drinkin' it straight
In the hills of Connemara.

I brewed 8 gallons of stout today. Not necesarily Richard's clone. Probably more close to the taditional "wrong" figures.

8 lbs american 2-row plale
2.5 lbs Flaked Barley
1.25 lbs Roast Barley
0.25 Chocolate Malt

60 min - 1 oz Northern Brewer Pellets 6.5 %AA
45 min - 1 oz Challanger Pellets 6.3 %AA

Mashed at 152*F, Drew about 10 gallojns of wort, boiled for 60 minutes.
Pitched about 350 mL of thin S-04 slurry harvested same day.
Used highly controversial "Olive Oil" technique* in lieu of oxygenation.

*Dropped the smallest drop easily attainable onto sanitized spoon, allowed majority of drop to drip off and then poured yeast slurry over portion of spoon containng remaining olive oil residiue. After that, I dipped the tip of the spoon into the wort and gave a very slight stir.

Dear Herzog

I can tell you, i was more closer than you think! Bopper's facts NOT what you read on the net.....You need about 30% flaked barley and about 15%, cuz i think guinness kilns their own to a higher degree, plus i don't think the yeast is that critical compared to other factors...eg sour an old bottle of guinness for a week or two....the best results were with galena hops, round about 50 to 70 ibu's depending on abv....commom fact dispensed with 70% nitro and 30% co2..

Truly an epic thread. Who will play Richard in the film version?

For what it's worth:
"In Burton a few months ago, I met the person who's in charge of QC for Guinness worldwide. She's an American! and I asked her what the BU's of draught Guinness were. She told me "35 to 45". When i asked her why the big range, she said that for perception of bitterness in Guinness, their research showed that the roast was more important than the BU's, so they really work on the roast, and let the BU's float a bit."

Plenty to keep me brewing for a while. About #55 per batch of 28 gallons (25 full gallons, finished). Maybe about 225 gallons or so. That should keep me in beer for a little while anyway.

Guinness Clone

Classification: stout, Irish stout, dry stout, Guinness clone, all-grain
Source: Nick Hiams (oleum@spuddy.mew.co.uk), HBD #1790, July 25, 1995

Dave Line's book "Brewing Beers Like Those You Buy" has a recipe for Guinness. It is based on the bottled version which has a higher og than the "draught" version.
It is suggested that a yeast starter is made from a bottle of Guinness. As you probably know Guinness is bottle conditioned still (in the stuff available in pubs at least). This is supposed to be a very good strain for all top fermenting English beers too.
This recipe is supposed to give between og 1045 to og 1053 depending upon efficiency.
The Guinness available on draught in pubs in England is a "keg" beer which has an og of around 1036 (Dilute the above to 6 galls). It is unusual and different to the bottled version in that it is injected with Nitrogen instead of Carbon Dioxide. This has been tried with "a remarkable degree of success" by the author of the book. Personally I prefer the bottled stuff.
I tried the recipe about five years ago and remember it as being a very good imitation. I served it from a barrel as a cask conditioned ale (is this what the Irish version is like?). All of the beers in the book that I have tried or friends have are very true to the originals and I can thoroughly recommend it.
Ingredients: (for 5 gallons)
7 pounds, Crushed pale malt
2 pounds, Flaked barley
1 pound, crushed roast barley
1 ounce, bullion hops (60 mins)
3 ounces, northern brewer hops (60 mins)

1 tsp. CaCO3 (if you are in a soft water area)
yeast starter made from a bottle of Guinness
Specifics:
OG: 1045-1053


Mash @ 67C for 90 mins using 1.5 qts/lb. Sparge to collect 4 gal, boil 60 min with all hops then cool and top off to 5 gal.

I agree, Guinness isn't very bitter at all, in my opinion. Yet, I havent had any experience with nitrogen in my home brews, so i can't say if nitrogen helps smooth out the bitterness. Subject: Re: Guinness figures thats given are incorrect!

Interesting... look at the percentages there chief:

7 pounds crushed pale malt
2 pounds flaked barley
1 pound roast barley
-----------------------
10 pounds total, ergo...

70% crushed pale malt
20% flaked barley, and the real kicker,
10% roasted barley.

Booyah.

The hop schedule, of course, is totally wrong. 4oz. of hops for 60 minutes?? That's just plain wrong. Subject: Re: Guinness figures thats given are incorrect!

OK fine Richard. You said your recipe (with the 100 IBUs and 17% roasted barley) was for Draught Guinness, yet the Dave Line recipe you just posted is for the bottled version - which we all know is not the same beast. So which is it?

I just plugged the hop schedule into Promash and it comes in at a whopping 147 IBU's. Uh huh..yeah, that must be right.

What the hell..let's go with 80% pale malt, 25% flaked barley and 20% roasted barley, and 4oz of hops to get us to 147IBU, boil for 27 hours, ferment in 2 days, and drink till you get the sh*ts. Sounds like a plan.

Dear Dave I will let you know how it turns out, like i said i tried over 11% of Roasted barley before and was't dark enough and used 1.50 oz's of Northern brewer's hops which are simular to Northdown, was,t right(good Murphy's Clone!) LOL.. 17% of rosted barley at 575.0 SRM to give about 50 SRM.. One of hops used in guinness originally was bullion, but no longer available, so i have used galena and used northdown, which is used by guinness.Richard (bopper) Subject: Re: Guinness figures thats given are incorrect!

Maybe and I do mean maybe if you were to put in 1oz of the of the Northdown hops and smoke the other two it might taste like Guinness. However, I am still doubting it. Subject: Re: Guinness figures thats given are incorrect!

are you sure 100IBUs is not for the guinness "essense"? The concentrated stuff they then blend locally with a smaller bland beer? (according to the article I read by one of the former brewers of the dublin brewery?)

I agree that it's dark, but the IBUs- sorry.

>"Guinness gets it bitterness from the hops used and NOT sour guinness"

In that same article, it sounded like they brewer would throw a punch at anyone who said guinness was sour. I don't think they intentionally sour their mash and it probably has more to do with the water. Subject: Re: Guinness figures thats given are incorrect!

The IBU is by Dave Line's recipe

Guinness Clone

Classification: stout, Irish stout, dry stout, Guinness clone, all-grain
Source: Nick Hiams (oleum@spuddy.mew.co.uk), HBD #1790, July 25, 1995

Dave Line's book "Brewing Beers Like Those You Buy" has a recipe for Guinness. It is based on the bottled version which has a higher og than the "draught" version.
It is suggested that a yeast starter is made from a bottle of Guinness. As you probably know Guinness is bottle conditioned still (in the stuff available in pubs at least). This is supposed to be a very good strain for all top fermenting English beers too.
This recipe is supposed to give between og 1045 to og 1053 depending upon efficiency.
The Guinness available on draught in pubs in England is a "keg" beer which has an og of around 1036 (Dilute the above to 6 galls). It is unusual and different to the bottled version in that it is injected with Nitrogen instead of Carbon Dioxide. This has been tried with "a remarkable degree of success" by the author of the book. Personally I prefer the bottled stuff.
I tried the recipe about five years ago and remember it as being a very good imitation. I served it from a barrel as a cask conditioned ale (is this what the Irish version is like?). All of the beers in the book that I have tried or friends have are very true to the originals and I can thoroughly recommend it.
Ingredients: (for 5 gallons)
7 pounds, Crushed pale malt
2 pounds, Flaked barley
1 pound, crushed roast barley
1 ounce, bullion hops (60 mins)
3 ounces, northern brewer hops (60 mins)

1 tsp. CaCO3 (if you are in a soft water area)
yeast starter made from a bottle of Guinness
Specifics:
OG: 1045-1053

He says to culture yeast from a Guinness bottle, but I think you'd be better off with the 1084

Mash @ 67C for 90 mins using 1.5 qts/lb. Sparge to collect 4 gal, boil 60 min with all hops then cool and top off to 5 gal.

Dave Line, LIke Charlie P., did a lot forn homebrewing back in his day, but he was off his nut on a lot of stuff, too. For one, he firmly maintained that you couldn't brew beer if you had pets, because every batcvh would be infected. Without denigrating Line, I certainly would be suspect of his advice. His recipes were also notoriously whacked out, with most of them assuming over 90% efficiency. Subject: Re: Guinness figures thats given are incorrect!

Dear Denny Dave Line's recipe most probley was,t a even 80%, but i think the hoping was ok, cuz the sour taste from guinness comes from the bullion hops, which i think now are unobtainable, so i know guinness uses an a american hop, which is now galena.(im in the UK by the way) Richard (bopper) Subject: Re: Guinness figures thats given are incorrect!

Okay...

Richard? (Bopper) (you who resides in the UK). Why are you obsessing over Guiness. If you want a beer that tastes EXACTLY like Guiness your best bet is to brew something like Guiness and blend it with real Guiness. It's what they do. Guiness does not use American hops. Guiness does not have IBUs in excess of 100. Taste a Guiness.

In regards to the flux capacitor, you need at least 20% to get the proper jiggawattage. It helps if you have a crazy guy standing on a clocktower with an IPA. Subject: Re: Guinness figures thats given are incorrect!

Guinness used Bullion hops, which is a fact, but now they use Galena, cuz Bulion is dying breed, IBU is over 100 due to the sour taste of Galena hops(and others), thats why guinness has that sour taste.

Well, I bought some guinness and it's raining in front of me in a guinness pint glass... What does Bryan think? Let's taste and find out...

almost opaque, but still had a deep mohogany color.. maybe 28-34'L

IBU's? Wow- this stuff is water. I love(d) guinness, but this is watery. It does finish kinda bitter. But no more bitter than my Amber which is 38 IBU's. My own stout is 45.6 IBUs.

Sorry, No way this is anywhere close to 100 IBUs. 50 at best.

From the former brewer in dublin
"In Ireland draft and bottled Guinness are brewed with pale malt, torrified barley, and roast barley for 4.2%. In Germany... Torrified and roast is replaced with roasted malt and is 5%. Guinness in Australia and Africa are brewed with GFE (Guinness Flavor Extract).

Beer critics comment on a special flavor characteristic. Some call it bite, tart, or sour which Dempsey frowned upon. He did admit that the blending in of mature high gravity beer gives the product a higher level of acidification which gives G Stout an extremely delicate acidity bite that is different from the hop and roast bitterness flavors."

Rob- I've got 3 cans left, and I bought 2 other commercials for tomorrow.

Richard? Torrified barley was a quote from the brewer. Either he's a liar or you're mistaken. I'd hate to call anyone a liar without proof. By the way, you quoted torrified wheat, not torrified barley.

Heath, absolutely let him brew it the way he wants to. But I don't want people who happen to come across the thread to actually think that his recipe is a proper guinness clone. Oops- Gary said the same thing.

The bopper isn't my favorite person on the forum, but I dont have anything against him. I think a lot of his opinions are biased or just plain wrong, and I'll be here to correct him when needed. He hasn't personally attacked anyone that I've seen, so why go that route- after all, the facts are on our side.

Lastly, unless someone has a nitro mix and faucet, I don't think you can even attempt a "proper guinness clone." You can fake it, but that's not what I'd consider a proper clone. Subject: Re: Guinness figures thats given are incorrect!

My figures are dam pretty near...like i said before i used nearly 12%(17% is needed to get an SRM of 50) roasted barley and no where near dark enough(good Murphy's clone)The hop rating is very very high according to secret sources, that why guinness has that sour taste!Dave Line recipe uses 4oz,s(US 6 gals and UK 5 gals) of hops and people has brewed this with a great deal of success.Richard (bopper)

Author: Richard Gale Feb 5th, 2006

Dear Eric, Thats just might work! but guinness only use 3 types of grain, i know there brewing has change over the years, they have cut down on the Flaked Barley %(used by guinness 25% to 30% flaked), most probley to save money.I think for the guinness export what they do is add sugar, because they say the strong abv % is sweet.Ginnness uses hops for ireland(northdown) and from america, they used to be bullion but no longer available, so they use galena. Everyone knows guinness is about 50 SRM, to achive this you need 17% of roasted barley at 575 SRM.Dave Line's recipe has been brewed and tested with 3.00oz of Northern brewer hops and 1.00oz of bullion hops, i have used 12% roasted barley and it is't no where near dark enough.Boil and mash for 90 mins is a fact.S0 this is how i have come up with this recipe.

Richard, I've been trying to stay out of this lately, but some of your statements beg refutation. I don't care what you think, hops WILL NOT make a beer sour. To maintain otherwise its to show your lack of understanding of brewing process and the ingredients that go into that. How do hops make beer sour? Why is flaked barley more expensive? How can the addition of sugar, if they use it, make a beer sweeter when we all know sugar is 100% fermentable and makes a beer drier, not sweeter? Now, there's nothing wrong with being uniformed unless you choose not to learn. That appears to be the course you've chosen, despite our best efforts to help you out.

O.k..
Ive heard enough of this.
Here is a recipe from Charlie P's book. And it tastes like Guiness without the sourness.
Ive made this one. This is an Extract recipe.

Guiness Clone
3.3 Ibs John Bull hopped Dark Syrup
4 Ibs of M&F Dark DME
3/4 Ib of 60L British Crystal
1/3 Ib of Roasted Barley
1/3 Ib of Black Patent
Bittering Hops: 1 1/2 oz of Northern Brewer :14 IBU's
Finishing Hops: 1/2 oz of Fuggles
8 tsp of Gypsum
Wyeast Irish

So my guess is around 30-40 IBU's. Taking a guess with the hopped extract. No way 100 IBU's.
By the way ive drank it in England.

Guinness don,t use crystal or patent or the hops, but thanks for the recipe. Richard (bopper)

The IBU is high in your recipes 2.00z of hops, plus the hopped extract. Subject: Re: Guinness figures thats given are incorrect!

I'm telling you.. This is exactly like guiness.
There is no diffrence other than the sour.
I mean it tastes exactly like it.
How would you know when you say you dont drink?

And yes there is Black Patent in it.
No your wrong. 1 1/2 oz for bitterness.
1/2 oz for finishing. Thats not alot of hops. You dont know what your talking about.
Your the one saying 100 IBU's.
Everyone is right. Your off your rocker...

Yours has the totally the wrong gain, i bet my Murphy's irsh stout is closer than your and thats yours, you need to read up about it, here is an extract from guinness facts page!

Bottled Guinness (Ireland)
"similar" specifications as Draught Guinness

OG: 1040
Alcohol: 3.5% abw, 4.3% abv
Contents: Pale malt, flaked barley, roasted barley, English and American whole hops (RADA)
BU: 90 (!)

The english hops are Northdown form Ireland and the american hops are Galena to replace the Bullion hops which are no longer available.

I've been in the PC business for... damn... 12 years and I've never once heard gigabyte pronounced like jigabyte by anyone.

Oh yeah, so, we had three brewers try guinness cans (with the widget) yesterday and we all agree.. about 28-34 SRM and 38ish IBUs. It tasted less watery since i left it at cellar temp overnight.
Guinness Extra (bottle, no widget) was a bit more bitter (and better tasting), but still nowhere near 100 ibus. Subject: Re: Guinness figures thats given are incorrect!

So OK I have 4 gigabyte of ram in my comp.... Guinness is heavily hopped and will not convince me its not! Ok i might be a few IBU out, but im the closest to this recipe than anyones ever been. I have seen some ridiculous recipes for guinness. So the old formula is 70% pale malt, 20%flaked barley and 10%roasted barley, with 1.50oz of nortern brewer hops(boil and mash for 90 mins),like said iv'e tried nearly 12% roasted with 23% flaked, it was better but not enough.Dave Line recipe has brewed lots of times and no one said it was to hoppy, so my thinking is the shear amount of roasted barley masks alot of ibu. Richard (bopper) P.S many people has tried for a guinness clone, but i bet its no where near guinness and they said it is! BECAUSE THEY WANT TO IMPRESS ...I have't brewed a guinness, i brewed for a guinness,but dammed good Murphy's irish stout clone. Subject: Re: Guinness figures thats given are incorrect!

like water colored black. The sight of a freshly poured Guinness
promises much more than the taste delivers. I can detect no body,
no flavor and no hops. It just might be the American version of
this brew that exhibits this lack of meaning. Perhaps the European
version is better.

but it's one easy drinking beer. I once drank 14 pints in a 3 hour session and was well enough to function. I had 9 at a show and drove home fine. It's a decent less-than-session beer.

As I found out this weekend, you definitely want to drink it warm- the difference is amazing.

Though I fondly recall a stout tasting at my LHBS. We had about 20 stouts: 2/3 commercial and 1/3 homebrewed. At the bottom of the ranks was guinness.

A.E Housmans A Shropshire Lad

Why, if ’tis dancing you would be, 15
There’s brisker pipes than poetry.
Say, for what were hop-yards meant,
Or why was Burton built on Trent?
Oh many a peer of England brews
Livelier liquor than the Muse, 20
And malt does more than Milton can
To justify God’s ways to man.
Ale, man, ale’s the stuff to drink
For fellows whom it hurts to think:
Look into the pewter pot 25
To see the world as the world’s not.
And faith, ’tis pleasant till ’tis past:
The mischief is that ’twill not last.
Oh I

Good evening every one making to this point in the thread.... Been busy and finished a keg filled another keg and got my gear out for a winter warmer tomorrow.... I'll be warming up a cl-50 sample in a bit.... that will handle half the batch and the other half will go on my us-05 yeast cake I racked off of today... Similar to a Celebration Clone but never really was all that close....

Currently sipping an Octoberfest from someone... pretty good. I guess I;ll have to make one for next year. Gonna toss a Murphy's Stout next.


Jim, I'll agree with Jim and BB above.... your one sadistic bastard.... Maybe that's a good name for your next IPA, "Sadistic Bastard"

There is a bigger GM motor than the 500 Caddy.

Chevrolet 572 9.4L.
Some of my favorites are the Olds and Pontiac motors.

GM knew how to build a 400 base motor.
My favorite is the Pontiac 400 T/A 6.6L. (aka Trans AM)

I'm to young to have driven back then

Since only being born in '74.
But growing up we always had GM cars.

We had an old '68 Chevy Caprice, 67' Pontiac Catalina Convertible.
We also had a good old '71 Chevy Malibu Chevelle.

I always try to remember in the old days.
All Malibu's were Chevelle's, But not all Chevelle's were Malibu's.

I'm advocating a Hall of Home Brewers. Kinda like the rock n roll hall of fame. If enough of us write our congresscritter maybe we can get a grant to start it. There are congress-critters that brew. They would understand. I think the building should be shaped just like either a beer bottle, beer can or a keggle. I think if the building resembled a cooler the fly spargers would boycott the effort. I foresee an animated greeter (like the Disney's Music Bear Jamboree show) that resembles a world famous brewer. He would be our first inductee.

Well since we're on topic-sorta- don't clone a stout, just make one. Your choices by the standards I guess would be -sweet(English),dry(Irish) and American. There's FES and RIS too.
But just find a good framework and add to it or subtract whatever you think would suit your tastes.. and just brew it. Out of 519 posts there should be one or two ideas here but then they may be incorrect. Look around perfection is here somewhere, I think.

BrewBoy,

I used Oregon Puree.
It turned out good, Last time I tasted.

So I cannot wait for tomorrows taste.
I used the WLP830, My favorite Lager yeast.

That stuff makes good lagers at room temp.
Then I cold crash it for 3 weeks, Tasty!!!

I can see it now... BB shows up with 2 sixers. 2 Six packs of 22Oz bottles with his version of Bob's Evil Twin....

On the news in Los Angeles the next day we see knuckle heads on TV in Texas brawling at the state fair. It takes a few burly rent a cops to break it up. The findings of the local DA are the chief of police and Robert are found as the ring leaders. They took down two mobsters and in celebration they cracked BB's Barleywine Bob's Evil Twin laced with some homebrew BB bought on EBay from some chemistry student brewed with poppy seeds.

BB, be sure that is basic 3/2 12 Oz beer bottled in plain brown bags with no traceable finger prints.

I'll donate $5 for the legal fund...

had a great dinner and some great beers tonight. gonna sleep like a bay-bee!

and then i have tomorrow off and i'm going to get up and brew 5 gal of ipa.

13#pale
.25# caramunich, special b, crystal 120
1oz nugget (60)
.5oz amarillo (15)
1oz cascade (5)
.5oz amarillo (0)
1oz amarillo (dh)
us05

the black rye i brewed yesterday with us04 is crawling out of the fermenter right now. it almost blew the airlock off, then i pulled that and just put a sanitized cup upside down over the hole and that actually got somehow thrown across the room. good thing i had the bucket in a rubbermaid tub. this is my first time using this yeast, is this common to have it go this crazy?

Th' all munich was OG 1062 - FG 16 efin' great but that's what I like- Spalt,Perle,Haller S off

They look but don't touch.... Slackers they can be,,,,

Found this to be a posted recipe since 1996, must be good to still be posted.....
Ingredients:
9 lbs Brit pale ale
1 lb flaked barley
18 oz roast barley
12 oz carapils
1.5 oz No. Brewer hops (60 min)
1 oz East Kent Goldings hops (60 min)
First, get the "tang" the way Guinness does: Sour about 24 oz (2 bottles) of stout (pref.
Guinness) by leaving it out in a bowl a week or more & then freezing it.
While brewing, thaw the sour stout & heat it to 180-190 F for 20 min.
Mash-in at 155F, hold for 1 hour, boil 1 hour & 15 minutes.
At end boil, add the sour stout.
At 70F, pitch 2 packs of Wyeast #1084.
A month or so of cold lagering (

Hey all....

Jeff, Yes I'm involved with bumping this full time.... today I spent 3 hours catching up on HR training courses (mandatory). So in between the courses, I ping the thread. With the merger and all, my tasks are slowing down... more that I'm waiting on others that slowed down months ago... So in answer to your question... I just tapped a 5Gal hop experiment. Grain bill was that of Fred's Amarillo Pale Ale... Hops were just a random assortment. Item to note, 2 hop additions didn't make it to the kettle. Come to think of it, the dry hops didn't make it to the keg.... so more hops for the next brew... I also have 10 gal that will rack to kg this week... maybe next. Not rushing it at all. I might even hop one up with a french press hop shot... but that is planned for the next round of split boil hop experiments...

evening bump time guys.

looking at some stuff online tonight. ya start thinking when you're laid off, ya know. any of you guys ever look into going to siebel brewing school? i'm going to have to do some more reading, but it looks like its really not all that expensive. the real question is, would i be able to get a worthwhile job around here with whatever 'degree' i would get from there?

they do offer a starting your own brewery course. any of you guys got a crap ton of money and want to start a brewery with me down in the wine country in southwest michigan? (i don't have any money, but i am a hard worker... )

Jeff, I don't have much money these days. However I have a colleague in Norway or was it Italy, maybe it was Ice Land or Nigeria I forget anyhow, since I have the max number of bank accounts allowed with foregn holds allowed by US law, all you need to do is give him your bank routing number and account number. He will deposit funds. Background is he is an exiled prince from some part of the country and is trying to get his money out of country and help stabilize the economy.

He's a wnderful guy who loves beer made from mango and dung for bittering. Family recipe. Said it can't be duplicated.

Sad to hear that Jeff.

It depends on what you mean by worthwhile. Brewers aren't one of the better paid professions in the world, but it sounds like if you're cut out for it then you'll be happy and make enough money to do alright. It sounds like with the number of breweries out your way that it's probably easier to find a job as a brewer there than most places in the world.

If I had enough money to not have to worry I'd start a brewery with you, but that may be awhile (or never) so don't hold your breath on me.

In the meantime, it's a nice time of year to be out in the woods. If you've got an opportunity to get out there and do some work, go for it. If nothing else it'll give you some physical labor and time to really think about things.

The point was to have some laughs over it, Then someone run back a crossed it after a year or so.
Then post a few times or so in it.
Leave it another year or two till we run back over it again.

I'm not really very political but I have been in business 22 years and would like to be able to continue to support my family by being self employed.

This has been the toughest/stress filled last couple years for me (and our whole northern MN area).

Business dropping like flies and I'm not talking new ones only..businesses that have operated for 20-30 years are calling it quits.

New records for bad economy have been set.

Do you guys really in your hearts believe that Obama will make things worse?

Yes, I truly belive weve opened our doors up for some real trouble here.

I'll be honest, I usually vote more middle of the road, So when I vote all Republican there's defiantly a reason.

Can Obama fix the economy? NO
Can he screw us up worse in 4 years time or shorter? YES! He has no experience as a leader.

Will he live to see a 4 year term? Probably not, They just arrested 2 men down in Tennessee, Plotting already to assassinate Obama.

Will I be sorry if they succeed? No comment

You can't be serious that you believe so strongly about this that you would want to see a human being dead.

An American.........is it because he's Black?

That's all I'm saying because I don't want to argue with you. It's just that I am having the hardest time seeing why some people are so against Obama, yet he was elected in America by a fairly large margin.

Do I think he is going to be a miracle maker......no. But I'm willing to give him a chance to try to help us out.

You just mentioned above that money was tight.....don't feel like the lone ranger. It's hard for most of us.

Any change has to be better than the way this last year or so has been going.....Think about it.

Yes, I do think he can make things worse. If he starts over taxing corporations and small business, they'll shut the doors or move their businesses to other countries where the tax rate is less. It's already happening, because the tax rate is too high. Tack on more and the problem will do nothing but get worse. Couple that with more spending and "Houston, we have a problem".

The only reason why he was elected was because of new voters.

New voters IMHO, Really didn't know what they were doing.
They were impressionable.

Also, I won't touch on a racial issue here, Most know my feelings (No need to get anyone upset)

Again I agree with BB's statements above.

I put a 45/70 Spingfield bbl on my pistol and made it it into a rifle now. I'll fill my feezer

When I used to hunt I used a .243 Remington (I think that's what it was). I got out of hunting but have thought about getting back into it some day. I now have my Grandfathers .32 Remington 8A. It's a semi automatic rifle and he took many deer with it.

I have to special order shells for it, because the ammo is obsolete. It's not that expensive, because I think he uses 30/30 casings and resizes them for .32 caliber.

That M-8 was prolly made in 1915 or some such. I don't know if
I'd even shoot it. It's chambered in .32 rem- it's prolly rarer than most.
He would have to resize ...prolly 35 rem. cases or buys some high$ 30 rem
auto to make the ammo. That's a gun you could never replace.
Don't worry ' bout any gun laws - they can never take those guns from us.
That's cool BB, aways wanted a Model 8 Rem.

I shot it once with the ammo I ordered. Worked perfectly and ejected the shell like it should have. It is in very good condition, so I don't worry about it being safe. Cool gun with about a 1" diameter barrel.

Yup, not registration on that baby, as well as others I won. They will all be passed down to my boys someday.

The Roasted Rye should be Choc Rye, not sure why I put that in there but it should make nary a difference. My effeciency was a little lower on this one because I had a bit of trouble with the recirculation and sparge due to the high amounts of "huskless" grains. I used a bunch of rice hulls but still had some problems.

Ohhh, the yeast was 05

"Anyone can keep dumping grain and hops into a recipe."

I kind of feel that way about recipes that have a 1/4 pound of this, 1/4 pound of that and a lot of different hops. I wonder how many people can actually detect those small amounts. I can't.

I have several beers named after movies, lines from movies song titles lyrics. I named a Brown ale after my son.

Once I get back on the feet, I'm thinking I'll be needing to brew a few to get my stores built back up. it's going quick. I need to make another BW, and maybe another traditional mead, and a couple of the house favorites like the ESB and a Pa, possibly even an IPA. The last one I made (IPA) I ran out of propane, I was doing a long boil and my 60 min hop's became 45 min hops and I only got like one other hop addition, then I said F it and dry hopped it. It actually came out being a really nice Pale, it just wasn't hoppy or bitter enough to be called an IPA

I found some happiness....a nice not to cold (51F) Barley Wine. after about 2 years it has an up front malty taste with low Bitterness and a sweet finish. Not as many esters as I want, and a tad on the sweet side, but when I made it I didn't account for a lower hop utilization (due to a very high per boil Gravity). I'll be making this again but probably double the hops. I used 9oz of hops, centennial (90,30, 20), Pearl (25,15) and Fuggle (5).

So I'm going to need about 12 oz cet, 6oz pearl and 6oz fuggles. I may change the bittering hop to something with a higher AA%. Like a Columbus or something similar. we'll just have to see when I can afford to do this one again :>

Something else I'll change, the serving size. I bottled this in 16 classic 7-UP Padre bottles. nice heavy bottle with the 1978 padre schedule and some other stuff painted on the bottle. I will definatly look into some 8oz bottles for the next go round. I'm 6'-0" 230lbs and one of these hit me like a ton of bricks. I figured the ABV to be 12% but I think I may have a bad OG reading. I've had other 12% beers and they didn't hit me so hard when I drank them. So I think the ABV may be a bit higher.

A long time ago, way back in history,
when all there was to drink was nothin but cups of tea.
Along came a man by the name of Charlie Mops,
and he invented a wonderful drink and he made it out of hops.

He must have been an admiral a sultan or a king,
and to his praises we shall always sing.
Look what he has done for us he's filled us up with cheer!
Lord bless Charlie Mops, the man who invented beer beer beer
tiddly beer beer beer.

The Curtis bar, the James' Pub, the Hole in the Wall as well
one thing you can be sure of, its Charlie's beer they sell
so all ye lads a lasses at eleven O'clock ye stop
for five short seconds, remember Charlie Mops 1 2 3 4 5

He must have been an admiral a sultan or a king,
and to his praises we shall always sing.
Look what he has done for us he's filled us up with cheer!
Lord bless Charlie Mops, the man who invented beer beer beer
tiddly beer beer beer.

A barrel of malt, a bushel of hops, you stir it around with a stick,
the kind of lubrication to make your engine tick.
40 pints of wallop a day will keep away the quacks.
Its only eight pence hapenny and one and six in tax, 1 2 3 4 5

He must have been an admiral a sultan or a king,
and to his praises we shall always sing.
Look what he has done for us he's filled us up with cheer!
Lord bless Charlie Mops, the man who invented beer beer beer
tiddly beer beer beer.

The Lord bless Charlie Mops!

Thom, I use the Distilled water cause I can save the DW / Star San mix using it over and over for a number of months. I mix 2-3 gallons at a time. I've saved a lot on Star San costs alone.

I don't have to worry about the PH level with DW so it stays good for a long time. I Store in a free keg.

You can use bleach as a sanitizer, just don't soak for a long time and at a real high concentration level. I've seen the guys at Ellis Island come back from WalMart with jugs of bleach that is to be used on their SS tuns.

Ok, this time I'm not just bumping this thread for bumping's sake.

If you were brewing a beer and aiming for Guinness' flavor as a goal, what hops would you use.

Something at 60 is my guess. With no additions afterward. I'm thinking Northern Brewer, Fuggles, or Target and don't think it will matter a whole hell of a lot as it is at bittering. NB is my 1st thought.

And this thread rocks BTW....

No me.

I may have asked this before, but when a post is made to a thread ( by someone else) it turns to bold lettering, so you know to read it. If you post to it, the bold lettering goes away. This one doesn't do that for me. I have to click on it again, after posting, to return it to normal lettering.

Does anyone else notice that?

now, now, guys...

Guinness is one of the major reasons I got into homebrewing. And I'll still order it if I'm in the mood.

I had many a pint this past weekend at Irish fest (after they took belhaven off tap). It's a good session beer. Obviously it has pretty much nothing on an imperial stout; but when you're drinking all day outside in the summer, you probably don't want many pints of RIS or something too heavy.

I don't want to rant too much here, and a separate thread prob. isnt' worthwhile here, but the aha has really been ticking me off. (And my entire homebrew shop off as well.) Not only are they getting stingier with the gabf tickets, but they are getting more and more pretentious with their competitions. Do they realize they are losing potential homebrewers like myself? I think I could do pretty well in competitions, but I really dont' care about aha ones. I think this year should be called: the GREED American Beer Festival

Would it be inappropriate to suggest that Richard was right after all?

I wunder if Patty O'Bama would love this brewed in the white house kitchen...

Do you have any idea how long this takes to read at this point? You're all cool and have given me great advice when I've asked for it, but I hate you all for resurrecting this (j/k).

I didn't notice that, but yeah - it does take a while to load. Wonder what the server's CPU load looks like while it's building this page.

I recently brewed a dry irish stout (I'm drinking it as I type). I went with the 70/20/10 ratio of pale/flaked barley/roasted barley respectively. I shot for 3.4% ABV but had some mashing problems and only hit about 3.0%. It's refreshing, roasty and delicious. It's a great session beer.

I think I was a hair short of the recommended 100 IBUs. I only added 0.8oz of goldings at the beginning of the boil.

Awesome. After barely surviving the last financial meltdown and having to change employment or face homelessness, I'm finally at a place where I'm close to closing a deal on a house and land. I've been fondly thinking about building 'The Brewery' that I've had in the back of my head, and I thought I'd stop in to see if TastyBrew was still alive and kicking. Not only is the forum still here, but so is this thread!

Let me bring this thread back to topic for just a second. The figures that Guinness gives that are really ticking me off is the reduction in product. 12oz have now become 11.2oz and the big cans are now 14.9. THAT IS INCORRECT. You want to charge more for your beer, go ahead, but don't be cheezy with the glass fill.

Speaking of Guiness, here's a really cool blog on the topic along with other really cool stuff from Martin Cornell, the worlds most foremost historian on the origin of UK Beer Styles! :

Close a window or a door maybe David?

I've never made a Guinness clone, but I had a Guinness last night. Delicious. And only 125 calories. Less than the 150 calories in the Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich my wife ate for dessert.

I have been researching this for the last 10+ years and have concluded that Michael Jackson (yes the singer lol) invented Guinness.
