A favorite of stout lovers, the Guinness Draught can has a secret weapon- a “widget” which releases nitrogen when the can is opened, creating that distinct creamy pour.
We can't help you with a widget in your bottles, but we can offer you a recipe that mimics that wonderful pour right in your own homebrew. For those who keg with a nitro system, this recipe will work perfectly for that as well. A dry stout, with notes of coffee roast and a creamy mouth-feel, this stout is sure to be a daily palate pleaser.
All orders containing Liquid Yeast will be shipped with a complimentary ice pack to ensure safe shipping!

So this was my 3rd brew and it was my least favorite beer I have made. It tasted more like a dark lager than the guinness I was hoping for. It was drinkable, but not my favorite.
This tasted exactly like Guinness ... until the bottles carbed up , then it lost some of the smoothness Guinness is famous for - the kit is great , but this should be kegged and have a nitrogen system for the full effect .. still a great beer and a great kit , it just doesn't go well with Co2 :)
