Hey everyone it's the 1st so we have a new Monthly Special Recipe Kit to offer at 15% off!
Robust porter is a complex, rich, roasty ale. Very drinkable and full of flavor. A nice malt backbone accentuated with East Kent Goldings and Fuggle Hops, this is a sure crowd pleaser. Add bourbon soaked oak chips and you now have Apex Brew Wares Bourbon Barrel Porter! We have soaked oak chips in Buffalo Trace Bourbon for 3 weeks and added 2 ounces, along with a small steeping bag, to the recipe kit for you to put in the beer. I can definitely see Wild Bill Hickok sipping on this while playing a round of poker in a saloon in Deadwood. Remember, keep your back to the wall!!!
We have also added an option of no oak chips in case you want to use your own chips and soak them in your favorite bourbon, or if you just prefer a robust porter alone with no oak or bourbon.
Available in an all grain or extract version, both come in right around 6.25% ABV.
Extract version is made with DME and steeping grains. Steeping grains are packed in a muslin grain bag perfect for steeping. 5.5 gallon recipe.
All grain recipe is based on a 5.5 gallon recipe at 70% efficiency.
Both recipes come with detailed instructions which may or may not need adjusting to you own brewing style. Try this and I think you will love it!
