Default Dr. Pepper Stout

So, I've been wanting to try something WEIRD because I have never done anything really WEIRD yet. But I am not trying to make hooch. So I figure why not let's throw together an honest-to-goodness real recipe, and see how far I can bend the rules and still make a drinkable beer.

I give you...

Dr. Pepper Stout

33% Dr. Pepper in the brewing liquor, and primed with ... you guessed it!

Dr. Pepper Stout (3 gal)

3.25# Maris Otter
8oz Crystal 40
8oz Roasted Barley
4oz Flaked Oats
4oz Flaked Wheat

Mash 158*F.

0.5oz Magnum 60
0.5oz EKG 10

1pkg SafAle S-04 Whitbread

2x 2L of Dr. Pepper and 2 gal of RO water, topped to 3 gal with RO at the end of the boil. I'll prime with 16oz of Dr. Pepper which should give me 2.2 volumes of CO2 and bottle in Dr. Pepper bottles.

Est. OG 1.055, 40 IBUs.

you got my attention, I loves me some DP and a good Stout.

What if, as an experiment, you poured 2 parts stout to 1 part DP in a small glass just to get an idea of the final product.

Sounds cool

do you plan on decarbonating the dr pepper when you bottle? This is deffintly something wierd....but could be very good. Nothing like 22 flavors of complexity

Heheh. Yeah I will loosen the caps on the bottles so it goes flat before I try to use it. Otherwise it'd be foam city.

Will the sodium benzoate stop the yeast, or will it boil off?

We use to get a drink called a Flaming Dr. pepper. and I swear it tasted just like Dr. Pepper.

1/2 -Pint of Bud(or any beer) and a shot that was 3/4 amaretto and 1/4 151 Rum.

we lit the shot on fire and dropped it in the beer, and pounded it like a boiler maker.

You might want to try some Almond extract in a stout, and see what you get. I bet you would have a Dr.Pepper stout.

Musing out loud here...

I hear the flavor from dr pepper comes from prune juice... What about adding some prune juice? Seems better to me than adding all the preservatives and such from a commercial soda, into your wort.

Either way, interesting idea!

He makes a good point. I'd be inclined to think that it wouldn't boil off and would affect the yeast.

However, I'm fairly certain you can purchase various soda flavored liquour concentrates from places like midwestsupplies.com

Alternatively, you could add crushed Dr. Pepper flavored jelly beans...

Mountain Dew beer has been done before, it was featured in BYO... so I'm assuming it'll work. In any case I'm pitching extra yeast just in case (1 pkg of SafAle S-04 into 3 gallons)
