    Pre-fermentation gravity came in at 1.063 or 1.059 depending on which megefter I'm supposed to trust more.

    Anyways, SG is a little high for a dry stout.........I might have <ahem> over-compensated for lower efficiency BIAB expectations.
    So let's call it a Strong Stout or an American Stout.

    I had to mix 2 packs of dry yeast (lack of planning for a 45L batch), so I hope the two ale yeast strains don't fight.

    Mash Ph was 5.2, should be SLIGHTLY lower based on the dark malt grain bill, but my water is a lot like Burton or London @ 7.9-8.2 Ph. I don't want to play with compensation until I'm sure what standard water does to a beer.

    All I know is that I'm happy to brew dark beers all the time. None of the namby pamby wishy washy blondes for me.

    lol, yeah. i added all the hops i had, probably in the region of about 100g; so it's not going to be face-numbing hoppy but it'll be up there for sure.

    Why do you say "clone" Cloning refers to trying to reproduce a specific brand/label, rather than just trying to brew to a style.

    Like my last IPA was a clone of Shepherd Neame IPA. But if I wasn't trying to reproduce that specific beer, I'd just brew a style.
