North Farthing Stout


So here comes my first recipe i brewed some time ago. Target was to create a classic simple but tasty Stout recipe, which should be able to be drank like a runnter Stout from the old days.
The Warminster malt really do the trick. Its the best malt i used until today. The taste is young even better then matured, a real runner to say. The foam is nice and stable.

I brewed with BIAB no sparge method. So if you are doing it differently just take the 29 Liters of water and calculate the fly sparge out of it.

One Point which is maybe good to know: In germany we dont work with brewhouse efficiency we work with Sudhausausbeute (SHA). There is no real way to convert it but one guy posted a formula ones which worked for him. So maybe it helps recalculating the efficiencyfor you ca.

Efficiency ≅ Sudhausausbeute / 0,8
Means for this brew: 54/0,8= 67,5% ca.

No Mater what your efficiency is, dont change any malt amount except the Maris Otter basemalt!
Only time you change all the malts is, if you wanna do more/less than 20 liters of course.

NO SPARGE BIAB

Hi Kristoffer

Interesting recipe

What is North Farthing is it a region or a style of beer?

Cheers
Thank you! North Farthing is to my Lord of the Rings hobbit theme. Southfarthing is a region in middle earth.

Since I live in Kiel, in the northest state of Germany i came to the Name North Farthing. A bit of a mix ;)
