Default All-Grain - 5-Quarter American Stout

Yeast Starter: Yes
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5 Gallons
Original Gravity: 1.063
Final Gravity: 1.018
IBU: 54
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90

A great American Stout. Some roast, coffee and dark chocolate flavors. Firmly bitter but not overly hoppy. Dry, but with plenty of body left from the dark crystal and flaked barley. The name comes from musical instrument sizes. Normal sizes are 4/4 or "4 Quarter." In the world of tubas, larger instruments are available. My Dry Stout is the 4/4 model, so the bigger American version had to be the 5/4.

I doctored a couple bottles of this with 0.8mL of Coconut extract and just won a 2nd Place in the Fruit Beer catagory at the Southern California Regional Championship.

As a regular American Stout, the judges wanted more hop flavor and aroma.

Here's the results

Thanks for the recipe Brewsmith! I english-ized it today with 1oz of Galena at 60min 1oz of Fuggles at 30 and 1oz of Fuggles at 10 with Irish Ale yeast.

I've got no idea if it's anything to do with the recipe or the 3 liter starter I pitched but this is absolutely THE most violent fermentation I've ever witnessed! It began fermentation about two hours after pitching...then it blew its airlock about 7hrs into it and needed a blowoff tube!

Thanks again and I'll let you know how hit comes out.....

Sounds good. The flaked barley in there adds head retention and mouthfeel. That's probably not helping the blowoff.

I'm going to make this again soon, but I'm going to bump the late hops and the roast just a touch, just to make a slightly bolder statement. The recipe as-is is great, balanced and very drinkable.

I checked on it this morning......It seems the insane blowoff is over, I'll switch back to an airlock this evening.

I did do 1 stupid thing with this recipe....I had read an article in BYO about dry stouts by Jamil the night before and he had mentioned grinding your dark malts to dust in a coffee grinder....sounded good in theory I ended up with the WORST sparge experience I've ever had! It wasn't quite stuck but it just did not want to flow...I ended up adding my sparge additions through the MLT manifold to help get it flowing.....maybe not optimal but it seemed to work out.

I just put an airlock on it during lunch......I'm pretty sure fermentation has run it's course.....

I kinda wish I hadn't pitched such a big starter now but the yeast's Best By date was 8/9/08 and Mr. Malty said it was only 10% viable......yeah right

Damn, that's a pile of awards. Is this all from one batch or did you just age one batch and keep entering it. I love the 5/4 size! I don't know if you ever did drum corp or any marching but my friend's brewery is Box 5!
