Default Brew to Bottle


Just bottled my first batch this past Sunday. I'll taste one this coming Sunday. Here are a few pics from brew to bottle.


Done sparging. Ready to boil.


Grain bed after sparging. Contains base, Crystal 60, choco, Cara-Pils, and roasted malts.


Brought to a boil, then added bittering hops and lactose sugar.


They're filled, but the caps still need to be crimped. I need to just buy kegs and a fridge.

A little more prep before they go in the boxes.


The bottom of the bottling bucket. Not too much loss.


Warm and flat, yet sweet and stouty. Nice!


Time for the boxes. Remember, if you don't rinse your bottle now, it just gets gross later.

Jim,

2nd batch was not infected and it tastes great. Perfect balance of roasty, malty, and a bit of chocolate. The pound of lactose really makes it nice. I don't like sweet beers because you usually can't drink very many with out heartburn. This stout drinks well, and no heart burn.

i don't always have this on tap, but never more than a month without it.

As I said in the OP
Best stout I've ever had

niquejim,

You're right. Definitely not as sweet as Mackeson.

I agree with Brandon about the malt balance. You can taste all three, and there isn't too much of one or the other. It's got the sweetness, plus the boldness of the malts coming through a bit more (this is what reminds me of Left Hand).

I had one that was carbonated , and one that was still flat . I'll have to wait another couple weeks to open my 22s. Only filled 3, so I'll have to treat them extra special.

Nice! Thanks for the pics. I didn't see cara-pils or dextrine in the original recipe? did you decide to add some on your own? how did it turn out? thanks!
