Stout

It all started with the search for a decent local stout.

American craft brewers seem to define their brewing hipness with this style. They throw in chocolate sprinkles, unicorn hair and kitchen sinks. We just want a stout like we had in Dublin.

Grain Bill-

  • 8-9 pounds of British pale malt
  • 1 pound British roasted malt
  • 1 pound flaked barley (improves mouthfeel, texture, body)
  • some chocolate malt, crystal malt, or black patent malt is optional, but keep it less than 10% of the total grain bill

Hop Bill-

  • 2-3 ounces of East Kent Goldings or Fuggles

Yeast-

  • Wyeast Irish Ale 1084

Mash Schedule-

  • Single infusion 150-155 F for 2 hours

Think Globally; Brew Locally
