    heh. It's been on the web since 1995. I posted it in r.c.b. and it wound up all over the place, including The Cat's Meow 3. I did a search last night and was a bit surprised at how many hits it had. This is the original extract recipe. I've been meaning to update it for a long time to my current setup, but I just make the conversions mentally. The extract to all grain conversions are easy enough. The biggest change from the original that isn't straightforward is that I changed the coffee addition to a post boil steep in a fine-meshed nylon hop bag while the wort is cooling. The original recipe was a tad overpowering when young due to the tannins extracted from the short boil.

    1 pkg Wyeast Irish Ale yeast

    Steep roasted barley, black patent, chocolate, and crystal malts in 1 1/2 gallons of water while bringing to a boil. Remove grains before boil. Add dark and light extracts and boiling hops and boil for 60 minutes. Add coffee at the last 5-7 minutes of the boil. Add finishing hops at the last 2 minutes of the boil before racking to primary fermenter. Pitch yeast when cooled below 90 degrees F.

    You should definitely try the Mackeson then. It's a Milk Stout as well, and it blows both of the current Guinness US offerings away (Extra Stout isn't even what it used to be prior to the Diageo merger).
