Brewed this with McStout. Sort of a throw-together recipe using whatever stuff I happen to have on hand: American Hops and some stout grains.

After brewing, left boil kettle in snowbank overnight to chill. Next day heat up on stove and pitched yeast. I think the extra soaking time affected the hops rate, as this was very hoppy at the start. Several months of aging mellowed them out a bit, but they are still pronounced yet. A no-chill method would replicate this if you were so inclined.

Water was adjusted for dark and balanced.

Scored 42.5 in BJCP judging at Siciliano's Market's Homebrew Day competition and made BOS round.

Hope you like it!


EDIT: Posting a recipe is not as straightforward as I thought it was going to be. Any helpful comments on posting a recipe would be appreciated. Disparaging comments about my recipe post will be make me sad.

This looks like an awesome recipe. I'm actually brewing a stout that I have had in gredients for. Wish I saw this first. I wouldn't mind trying to do a "CAscadian Stout". LOL You should trade me a bottle

Where you at? I only have 2 bottles of that first batch left and they are my ticket to winning the HBT competition this year. However, I have a second batch in the primary, just about ready to transfer to the secondary and I may put some oak and bourbon in there this time too!

But I'd love to swap beer if you want to. 2 bottles fit into the shrink wrap core tubes from the shipping area at work.

I'm in Muskegon. I ship beer all the time so no big deal for me to find packaging. I have an IMperial stout that will be 9 months aged for this christmas and I have a Chocolate stout thats about 2 weeks old now. Wanna plan on waiting a couple months then shipping out? By then I will have quite a few aged and ready. Kona Porter, couple saisons, american stout, imperial stout etc....

I don't have that much on hand, but I can ship some of what I have. Whenever you think is good for you will work for me.

Ok, lets wait a month or so. That way my chocolate stout will be done and bottled.

This is the beer you brought up to my house, isn't it? I loved it. I'm going to brew in in October. It's on my list. Thanks for posting the BSM file- that makes it easier for me!

Same one. But I brewed it a few weeks ago and put it on the oak and bourbon last night. Strangely enough (or not) it tastes different. Could be I haven't let it sit long enough, or it still needs chilling and carbed. I've been fooled many times by tasting a beer too young, and that last one aged for a few months before I gave it out.

I'm loving my new Keggle. I made enough of this to completely fill my 6G secondary. Usually I'm lucky to get 50 bottles.

Actually filled it up and had very nearly 3 bombers to boot.
