Sometimes I just want a Stout

One reason why I love homebrewing is that I get to make styles I enjoy which I can’t regularly find on tap at the local pub.   With everyone chasing the latest trends in craft beer I find it rare that a straight up “Stout” is on tap.   That’s why I made this beer.

6 lbBriess Brewer’s Malt 2-Row (1.8 SRM)
6 lbThomas Fawcett Golden Promise Pale Malt (3.0 SRM)
1 lb 5 ozMuntons Chocolate Malt (425.0 SRM)
1 lbFlaked Oats (2.5 SRM)
8 ozDingemans Aromatic Malt (19.0 SRM)
4 ozMuntons Roasted Barley (525.0 SRM)
1.25 ozWarrior 15% Alpha T-60
1 ozEast Kent Goldings 5% Alpha T-10
Nottingham Yeast Harvested from previous batches

The end result?   A 7.4% full bodied stout with chocolate, roast, and bitter finish.  The next version of this I’ll probably dial back the bitterness and maybe ditch the roasted barley all together…
