(Makes 5 gallons) When we developed this stout over the years we were going for a flavor that was similar to Guinness but with reduced bitterness and more malt flavor. We use 1 lb of Roasted Barley and leave out the Chocolate and Black Patent found in many stouts. This provides for a very clean, precise dark malt flavor. We always talk customers into this kit and they are always thankful we did. Our best selling stout recipe.

Hearty Stout
I add some cocoa powder to this kit to make my "half-asphalt cocoa stout." Beer lovers and snubbers both like it.

Excellent stout,very neutral, great tasting by itself or with additions.
My favorite stout. Also great with Cherry juice or huckleberry juice added to secondary fermenter.

Excellent stout
I brewed this for my very first batch, and it turned out great. I shared it with about 10 friends and they were shocked at how good it was. It's got a creamy mouthfeel and good head. My OG was high at 1.068 so the beer came out around 6.5% abv. I used Wyeast 1056 American and the finished product tasted like an Americanized version of Guinness, but without that famous tart/sour tinge. Overall I prefer the normal Stout kit better because of the chocolate and patent malts that are included, but this B3 version is definitely worth brewing.

Great stout!
This is what a basic stout should be. Period. It's a fantastic base to start with. I my case I used the kit as-is, except I added 3 "servings" of coffee made in an AeroPress to secondary. This is equivalent to around 6-7 shots of espresso. This gave a great coffee flavor without being too distracting. My wife normally doesn't drink my beers, since I usually brew hoppy styles that she doesn't like, but she really enjoyed this one and actually would pull some pints for herself once every few nights, which is a first.

I'll definitely be buying the B3 stout again, and along with the M-83 IPA MoreBeer kits haven't let me down yet!

Nice stout. Not too hoppy. Added Mexican chocolate at flameout. Came out nice. Friends love it.

Delicious Stout - close to Guinness
Has a nice creamy head and dark caramel color. Definitely a strong stout and very close to Guinness. Mine had coffee undertones that I don't taste in real Guinness but this did not detract from the fine flavor. Beautiful color and lacing in the glass. Pretty heavy yeast sediment in the bottle but otherwise clean (not that you can see through this one - its as dark as night). Very satisfied. I used WL-001 rather than an English strain as I was not as fond of another brew where I used WL-002.

Oatmeal Stout
I added a container of quaker oats to the beer during the grain steeping step. The resulting oatmeal stout is hands down the best homebrew that I have made.

Recommend Dark Malt Extract
I brewed this as my second beer and the staff at the more beer showroom recommended I try the new dark malt extract. It turned out great and in my opinion better then Guinness. I brewed a second batch 6 months later and used the ultralight extract on the recipe guide. I found it made the beer thinner and more like a porter in flavor. In summary use the dark malt extract to replace the ultralight.

Great Stout
Very simple but delicious. 3 weeks in fermenter then bottled. Couldn't wait so threw a couple bottles in fridge only 3-4 days after bottling- was great then, even if a little flat. After about 8 days- just great. Nice head, great flavor. Will definitely order again.
