I'm brewing a dry stout, to be served via nitro. Mostly for the wife, but I enjoy one like that once in a while myself. I never have ventured into this particular style before.
I was thinking that simple is best for a beer like this.

Pale malt 60%
Roasted Barley 10%
Flaked Barkey 30%

Northern brewer for bittering.

Infusion mashed at 150

Sound okay?
Any suggestions?

The classic Guinness recipe includes 65 percent pale malt, 25 percent flaked barley and 10 percent roast barley. The O.G. is 1.038 and it is bittered to 37 IBUs with Bullion hops. That doesn't mean you can't do otherwise with your stout. The slightly greater percentage of flaked barley would give your recipe a little more body. I think Northern Brewer would be a perfectly good bittering hop.

Sounds good to me. I always have to add some CaCO3 to my mash when I brew dark beers because I have very soft water. But that shouldn't be a problem for you, Jack - you get your water straight out of the Schuykill, right? :)

Nope. The Delaware, I prefer lead and mercury to the slime of the Schuylkill.
