I brewed a GF stout this weekend and in an effort to darken the color I added a batch of Bochet that I had been sitting on for a few months to the boil water.
It was made by cooking 3 lbs of honey for 8 to 10 hours in the crock pot and mixing with 1 gallon of water then fermenting with montrechet yeast. I figure the fermentation has already removed the sugars and the boil would remove most of the alcohol so I didn't have to worry about adding too much to the OG. The Bochet has no discernible sweetness to it because the honey is VERY carmelized and has a bitterness to it that reminds me of the bitterness you get from heavily roasted grains. I thought that might work well in a stout. Here is a picture of the Bochet
so you can get an idea of how dark it is.
The brew came out VERY dark and I was very please with the initial taste. Here is a picture of the brew.
Unfortunately it isn't such a great picture. The steam kept fogging up my phone.
I will post pictures next week when I rack to to the secondary and update on the flavor.
