It seems like a FOX TV Show when a mead maker moves in with an AG brewer....They end up with **** like Lambic Braggot.

yea, wonder if I can get this into the keg rotation...or if it works out I may go for beer bottles at 18-20% not to many in one shot.

Anyway if someone has some suggestions on how to make this high power stouty braggot, let em fly

I think I'd cut back on the CaraAroma and bump up the 2 row or whatever base malt you use. CaraAroma is a specialty grain rather than a base malt. Weyermann, the manufacturer, suggests not exceeding 15% of the grist. Also, most stouts would use black roasted barley rather than Carafa.

hmmmm, seeing as how I dont know all the beer terminology (grist?? is this the grain portion) I may have to consult my AG half on this.
