About a year ago we had the owners of Old mission brewery from Encenada BC MX come to one of our CHUG meeting. we where sampling their beers and I had the idea to do a milk stout with Horchata. This last weekend I finally got around to trying to brew this beer.

with some discussion with other home brewer's I decided the best way to get an horchata profile into the beer was to add it to the fermenter. For those who don't know Horchata is a sweet milky drink that is made from soaking rice that it ground into a corse powder with sugar cinnamon and water over night, so there is no cooking, and could result in sanitation issues if added to the fermenter.

I addressed this problem by pasteurizing the horchata in a 140F water bath for 2hr. I also made the horchata with Lactose instead of sugar that the yeast would be able to ferment out.

For the Horchata I ground 1bl of long grain rice to a corse powder, and added 1 lb lactose and 1 TBS of ground Cinnamon. I added enough water so the ricer was covered ~2 cups. then steeped that over night in the refrigerator.

then i strained the horchata through a stainless steel mesh colander, and rinsed it with cold water till I had collected 1 liter. and placed it in a 140F water bath for 2hr. ( I used 2L of water in a slow cooker on low)

Well this beer did NOT have any horchata flavor, but it is a really nice sweet stout. Next time Ill be trying to bump up the horchata flavor some how, Might have to experiment with the horchata powder.

Did you consider using orchata? The commericially available liquor. It smells and tastes just like the stuff you are describing. You could add a few ounces in secondary next time.

No I have not, Ill look into that, but I'm not a big fan of boozy beers, so I would prefer to use some thing with out added alcohol, but that can be adjusted for.

I just visited Cigar City this past Saturday, they had two different Horchata beers (both 7%, low srm, with little to no hop flavor) in their tasting room. They were amazing! My first thought was I need to make a stout or a brown with Horchata. Too bad this didn't work out for you, looks like I have some more research to do.

Edit* the bartender in the tasting room said they make their Horchata with almonds, sesame seeds and cinnamon. That's all that he knew about it.

Thanks I might try and email Cigar city and see what their ratio was, and how they made their Horchata. Maybe they will respond.
