I'm sure you can buy it online somewhere. And yeah, Pastry Stout, not heard of the term before?
Digression from the recipe talk, and I will have to check my notes, but I *may* have tried this at the Bristol Craft Beer festival in June. Everything Lervig I have had has been great.
That's where I tasted it, managed to get 4 of them before it was out... Yes I was greedy. And it's relevant to the topic as it's giving context to what I want from my stouts.
Cool. I think I saw a reference somewhere that this is related to pie based recipes e.g. Pecan pie/ maple and pecan stout?
Yeah. Anything those sort of lines. And I love it!
Just found it. Not cheap! My favourite imperial so far is founders KBS
I've not got round to buying myself one of those yet.
That is a lot of wood chips. It would have a big impact on flavour. Where are you getting the wood from and what were they used for previously
I was just going to grab some from my local home brew shop.
By the looks of that, your fermentation is going to be like launching the space shuttle if done on a hot day lol. Looks awesome btw, wouldn't mind trying this myself one day man
Lol appreciated. I am considering splitting the 20L batch into 2 x 10L batches in 25L FV so there's a bit of room in the FV.
Good idea. there is a video on YouTube where the lid blew off and it covered the ceiling!
I've come pretty close to that the past couple of brews to be honest hehe
Well I'm going to start it Saturday 03rd August as I'm holiday this month and don't want to start anything new where I can't be at home to nurse it. But I will definitely document this brew and take a few pictures along the way seeing as this one has peaked some interest.
Okay. So I'm starting it this Saturday and I have one final concern.
Will 20g of British Ale Yeast be enough?
5kg Stout Malt Extract
2kg Dark Malt Spray
500g Lactose Powder
1kg Brewing Sugar
150g Columbus Hops
200g Roasted Barely
1kg Golden Syrup
100g Kentucky Bourbon Oak Barrell Chips
Should I get more of the same Yeast? Or change the Yeast? I'm placing the order before 5pm today, so would appreciate any feedback please.
yeast needs to be able to handle 12% which that looks like being at 23l. I don't think british ale yeast will handle that.
The batch size is going to likely be around 19L.
Which will be an even higher projected percentage. I've used S05 to get 12%, never tried any higher.
That's a real good one.
SO5? I'll have a hunt around and see if I can find it somewhere.
