Yesterday, Tom (the pizza guy) and I brewed up the two cans of old "Spring Mountain" pre-hopped extract (one light, one dark). Since it was six years old
, we steeped 8 oz. of chocolate and 8 oz. of Victory @ 150F first to freshen it up. We then stirred in the two cans of extract and brought it to a boil. 1 oz. of Fuggles for 30 minutes, 1 oz. for 15 minutes.
A new packet of Noghttingham.
22L @ OG 1.048 We added too much makeup water, as I had forgotted Tom's fermenter was marked in liters not quarts.
Bittering? Who knows. The extracts had both hop extract and hop pellets in them.
Dark, bitter, roasty.
Call it a stout.
I'm off to see if it's working yet and have some pizza.
