    Hi,

    I was planning on brewing the following, and would appreciate it if anyone could offer any comments or criticisms.

    The recipe is copied directly from a commercial brewer (I'd rather not say who), and has been scaled down for roughly a 10L batch.

    The only thing which the recipe below omits is the addition of more Carafa III during sparge which I assume is mainly to provide additional colour and avoid too much roastiness. I wouldn't know how much extra Carafa III to add though. It has been suggested that it should be kept to less that 5% of the total grain bill. As it currently stands, it doesn't look like the colour will be nearly as dark as "black"....

    Thanks,

    Roddy
