Default Iron Brewer - Reese's Puffs

Our club is doing an Iron Brewer competition. For the first round, I was given Reese's Puffs as the ingredient I have to brew with.

I'm thinking about doing a milk stout and adding the cereal to the mash.

Anybody have any other suggestions? Any ideas on how much to add to the mash?

Thanks!

Toss some in some 151 and see if you can pull out some of the flavor, if you can make a brown ale and pitch the extract in when bottling/kegging

This sounds like the perfect ingredient for a porter to me. Keep it sweet but not syrupy. I'd be afraid to mask the true taste with the bitterness of a stout, but it could be seen as taking a creative risk. Either way, keep us posted! What kind of deadline are you working with?

I agree that the natural choice would be a porter. Specifically one that is heavy on the chocolate flavors. The only stout I could imagine working is a chocolate milk stout and you'd have to be careful not to go too heavy on the coffee notes. Do keep is posted on the deadline and your progress. GOOD LUCK!

The beer needs to be ready by March 20, so I have plenty of time.

A porter or a brown ale was the first thing that came to mind.

At the end of the boil, I would suppose you will have to showcase the flavor of the cereal.

Look at what I did for my gingersnap brown ale I talk about how to use the nutrition info/sugar content to figure out how much to use.

An extract of it is also a good idea.

One other thing to consider for the end is to, if you're bottling, prime with it. You'd have to figure out how much sugar can be extracted from a fixed amount of the cereal, and you may need to supplant it with more priming sugar. You could steep the cereal and priming sugar in the 2 cups of water for awhile til the cereal breaks down, then strain the mess through a combination of coffee filters and strainers until you just get a liquid (it will be cloudy and yucky looking but in a stout or brown ale it won't be that noticeable in the finished product.)

Then boil that up to steralize it and use that as you would your normal priming sugar.

I would probably do a combination of the three, do some in the mash, do a vodka extraction and add to secondary of after fermentation has ceased in long primary, and then do it as a primer as well. The flavor should really come through.

I was just thinking about it and you might even think about pulling a gallon of whatever beer you make after primary is complete and dry hop (or dry puff) it to see what charter it adds.
