4 Oz Carafa Special II
4 Oz Oat malt
2 lbs DME
1 lb cane sugar

Mashed 149 f

1 oz Summit 60 mins
3/4 oz summit 20 mins
1 1/2 oz Northern Brewer 10 mins
1 1/2 Chinook 5 mins

dry hopped with 2 1/2 Northern Brewer 7 days + 2 Oz Citra in the keg

It's been a while since I posted a recipe, I don't until I've sat on a few versions and perfected it. This is a fantastic black ale, hoppy and slightly roasty and at 8% ABV is smooth and probably the best beer I have ever tasted. I fermented this last version a long time since I was out of the country for several months. The yeast was actually the cake off a lower gravity beer, I just racked on top of it. Despite sitting on the yeast almost three months this turned out fine, brilliant even! Oh the DME substituted the equvalent Pilsner malt which I ran out of. I think it may even have benefited from this... Next time I brew it I won't change a thing.
