Hazelnut Milk Stout
Now that Ive confirmed my stout is through its primary fermentation (pulled a sample at lunch), I have some confidence posting my first AG. Ive made this as a PM a lot of times and Im fairly confident Ive successfully converted it to AG. The only issue so far, the OG was a little low. But Im blaming that on the mash tun spigot popping off three times during the mash. I think next time Im going to wrap some Teflon tape on it and hammer it in with a mallet.
0.75# Special B

Dear recipe writer: we both know when you say "use four cloves of garlic" you really mean "use a head of garlic."
