SouthWind Stout II

Source: Tim Neall
Recipe added: 11/29/98

This is the modified version of SouthWind Stout (my annual birthday brew, and in my opinion is superior. Extraction was better b/c I had a better crush. The beer is nice and dry, with a dense off white head. It looks and smells like Guinness. It has a nice body and residual sweetness, left by the yeast. I could probably up the hops a bit to satisify my own need for bitterness, and it would still be in the style.
