Default I've been waiting 4 months for you baby

After patiently letting this beer sit in the secondary for four months, I just finished bottleing my imperial stout from Northern Brewer. The only thing I changed about the recipe was I added 1 bottle of pure maple syrup. The maple flavor is barely noticeable, but otherwise it tastes awesome. This may be the most excited I have been about a beer so far. It will be a test of my willpower to let this sit in the bottle for a while.

Sometimes I drink and write things on here
  • Bottled: Orange Blossom Cider
  • Bottled: Scotch Oak Porter
  • Bottled:(for the last 4 months..be strong) Belgian Tripel
  • In the works: Cherrywood smoked orange blossom honey belgian yeast super experiment
  • Drinking: Jameson Whiskey

if you get the chance to brew again, try finding grade b maple syrup. Much more "maple" flavor and slightly cheaper.

Stay strong my friend, you can do it. And your reward for being good, you can have this beer for breakfast with your eggs and pancakes. Maple stout sounds fantastic!

Heh, if 4 months is awhile for you, I don't suggest getting into sour beers anytime soon. I just finally kegged my Flanders Red the other day...which I brewed last July. And it was still barely ready.
