Basically, you'd get none of the roasted flavor from using flaked barley
as you would by using roasted barley. I use both in my stouts, however,
one is not a substitute for the other. I also use black patent malt and
chocolate malt in my stouts. Just a little of all these (1/2 pound) will
add boatloads to the final product. Also, don't forget the initial pale
malt grains; I wouldn't want you to have a black beer with a gravity of
1.020. Add at least 6 pounds of pale malt to the grain bill and you'll
be fine. Here's my Dry Stout recipe.
Quite dark, excellent head and lacework, nice and creamy mouthfeel, good
roasted flavor, but not overly so.
