[ Yesterday, I tried responding to <L_LEE1%UNHH.BITNET@MITVMA.MIT.EDU>'s
question about stout recipes. My message and table seem to have gotten
trashed, either by my mailer (oh, no, not *that* again!) or the digester
somewhere. Here goes again, with all dashes replaced by equals-signs... ]

I did a little chart of recipes when I first started brewing; helped me to
generalize what constituted a stout. The `Mega' turned out very well --
dark, roasty, heavy. Be warned, however: my primary blew its lid three
times and really made a mess out of the room. Use a super-large blow off
hose, or (twinge!) just leave the hole in the fermenter uncovered; using
liquid culture might prevent such an intense fermentation.
