Have you brewed this again? Changed anything? Could you give any tasting notes, if you can remember?

I happened to be brewing something very close to his recipe this weekend. I've never made a stout so i wanted to go light on the chocolate and roasted barley and be able to scale up if I need to. If I feel it's too light on the roastiness, I will likely brew Hokie's recipe next time, but a partial mash. Hopefully northernbrewer gets their maris otter LME back in stock soon.

Yes, actually I just brewed it again a few weeks ago. Have it on nitro tap right now. The only thing I changed was reduced the roasted barley to 0.25 lb because I thought the original version was a little too roasty. Other than that, I have brewed this recipe 4 times and it comes out delicious every time! Let me know how it goes if you brew it!

I plan on it, when I finally get a chance. Have you substituted with any other yeasts? I am not familiar with your choice.
Also, have you brewed it without the lactose? The reason I ask, is I brewed a milk stout with lactose and it was good but had a slight sour note to it, which I attributed to the lactose.

HokieHomeBrew 11-14-2012 02:58 PM

I have brewed it with other yeasts. The yeast I used you can only get from northern brewer. it is their proprietary english strain. i have brewed with london ale and british ale. both came out good. my guess is any good english strain would work just find. i have also used ringwood. never brewed it without the lactose. it wouldn't be a cream stout afterall :). I have not gotten any sour notes so maybe you had old lactose or somethign?

Yeast Starter
Looks tasty! I will have to try this one......

Am I correct in assuming you did a yeast starter for this?

HokieHomeBrew 11-19-2012 07:21 PM

I actually did not. Probably would make it even better if I did! Haha. Let me know how it turns out.

FastAndy 11-20-2012 01:20 AM

i made this on saturday, followed your recipe but added a half pound of oats because i love the mouth feel you get from oats. It looked awesome in the kettle, i ended up at 1.056 so we'll see how it goes. Fermentation took off and was really churning for two days.


HokieHomeBrew 11-29-2012 06:11 PM

You gotta let me know how it comes out with tthe oats. Cheers.
