Admittedly, Thames Valley Yeast is not standard for Irish Stout. It did, however, do an exceptional job in bringing out the flavour of the raw and roasted barley. I would recommend trying it. The only reason I did is because I popped the wrong package of yeast. This recipe is a very close rendition of the Guiness Clone v.3 on Cat's Meow. I like the Chinook hops better than Goldings for bittering.
