Brew Day, Batch 385: Irish Stout

Mrs. C. has been rather forcefully noting that of late we have no beers pouring that are on the black end of the color spectrum, and further, that she expects SOMEONE to do something about it. Ahem.

'Tis a simple beer, pale malt with 12ish% each of flaked barley and roasted barley, and one kettle addition of hops to 40ish BUs. Target gravity is low 40s, and fermentation today will be carried out by the Essex ale yeast that we make most of our beers with at Grizz. I do love me a pint of fresh Irish stout, and we should be enjoying this in about 3 weeks, just in time for 'the wearin' o' the green.'

  1. Hmmmm
    We brew wives can be a demanding lot, can't we!
    I myself have been pushing for a nice mild or bitter to keep the beer engine happy and useful.
    Oh, and maybe a little Bo Pils for that day when we can once again sit out on the back deck. Without coats.
