1 can Mount Mellick Famous Irish Stout Extract
3 # M&F Dark Dry Malt Extract
4 # Frozen Blackberries
1 # Dark Crystal Malt
1/2 # Black Patent Malt
1/2 # Roasted Barley
1.5oz Hallertauer
.5oz Fuggles
1/2 cup Corn sugar for priming

Specifics: Start all the grains in brewpot with cool water, remove
when boil commences. Add all malt, and Hallertauer hops. Boil 1 hour.
Add Fuggles hops, boil for 5 more minutes. Remove from heat. Add
thawed blackberries and steep for 15 mins. Cool and dump the whole
mess in the primary. When moved to secondary, leave the blackberries
behind.
This stout reaches it's prime in 4-6 weeks, and rapidly deteriorates
from there, aquiring a winey flavor as the residual blackberry
sweetness erodes.
