This recipe is an Irish Extra Stout. I’ve made it many times before, but this tends to be the recipe that is the most balanced. It happens to feature (by accident actually) Belgian Pale Malt. It’s a really simple recipe, and while it goes a little past the style in gravity, IBU’s, and SRM, I find that it’s a pretty nice, simple Stout with a little more warming to it.
