Tobaccoless Cigar Stout recipe (Maduro Stout)
 
Ok there were a bunch of people interested, not to long ago, in a WORKING recipe. This is NOT my recipe. It is called Maduro Stout. This recipe/beer was made by a fellow homebrew club member because she wanted to have a stout to go with her cigar. I am NOT a cigar smoker but when I did smoke, I had my share. IMO this recipe/beer tastes + smells like an unlit cigar to me and uses 0 tobacco. The recipe is EXACTLY as was given to me and it is an extract recipe so anyone can make it. I was given permission by her to repost it here. It is in metric and the hops are in grams. enjoy!

very interesting, what is the general timeline for letting it sit on the french oak chips? 1 - 2 weeks? a month?

I was told it was 1-2 weeks but "to taste" is the best descriptor she gave me. She also noted that you did not want to over oak it. In her words, "When it tastes like a cigar you are done." :)

I want to try this, but I have a few questions. Recipe says "Batch size: 9.46 L
Boil size:16.05 L" this can't be right for the boil size, but what are we looking at here for the batch size? Also how much do I need for oak chips? Thanks.

I think that the recipe is what they gave me. :) IMO the numbers are right because you would loose about 5L in a 60 minute boil. I will bet they scaled it up to do a 5 gallon batch.

The oak is pretty light so you do not need a ton from what I remember. I would think a 1 - 2 oz bag would be fine because you want to oak it to taste not on a time.
