Extract kit with alc boost, 9 days in primary 14 in secondary 5.2%. Nice beer, you certainly get close to a Guinness flavor/style but not quite the same. Mine was a little thinner and noticeable difference in the head retention (this was expected). All and all this made an excellent beer that was ready in time for St Patty's day. Everyone that had one noticed the difference but enjoyed it. Bottled the first 2.5 normal and then added close to a full thing of green food coloring to the second 2.5. When poured you were left with a nice green head and it didn't affect the flavor at all. I would like to do this again with a nitro set up if possible. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a Guinness clone.
