Spotlight: Wishing Well

Fall is fast approaching, which puts me in the mood for a nice stout.  I only do one stout, and this is it: Wishing Well, a classic dry stout.  Dry stout or Irish stout is a very simple style: jet black, roasty, with a nice malt backbone but no sweetness, and a very full body.  Wishing Well has a very full flavor and body, but is only 4.2% ABV, a perfect session stout.

The recipe for a dry stout is pretty simple–barley, flaked barley, and roasted barley–and you can’t really change it, because it stops being a dry stout.  I’ve tried, doesn’t work.  Make this if you want a perfect beer for cooler weather:
