Style: 15B - Irish Stout
Standard Irish Stout. I've made this a bunch and am following the basic 70/20/10 rule for base grain/flaked barley/black barley (or roasted or chocolate). Though I am about to make another one soon, this is a batch I did back in January of 2017.
Full recipe is on brewersfriend.com, but here's the TL;DR
- Brew day: 2017-1-7
- 24L batch, 30m boil
- grains: 70% 2-row, 20% flaked barley, 10% roasted barley
- hops: 25g Magnum @ FWH
- expected efficiency: 78; actual: 73
- 24g magnum
- ran out of 2-row, using MO for base
- heated to 70, mashing at 67
- finished with OG 37 and 23L
- pitched US-05
- FG 8, ABV 3.8%
Grain bag in for the mash + bacon
Flame on! This was one of the first brews on the new gas range
Before I got the pot filler hooked up I had to run the garden hose in for chilling
And the final product. Came out pretty tasty but I do prefer S-04 over US-05 and will use it next time.
This is a great brew for the nitro tap and I try to have some on most of the time. Currently I have an imperial stout on there but will replace it with a new dry stout soon.
