This recipe is based on the Double Stout recipe that appeared in Zymurgy
magazine, but the quantities have been adjusted to make a half batch.
Ingredients: (for 2-1/2 gallons)
- 1/2 pound, crystal malt
- 1/4 pound, roasted barley
- 3.3 pounds, Mountmellick stout kit
- 1/2 pound, amber dry malt
- 1/2 teaspoon, gypsum
- 1/2 teaspoon, Irish moss
- 1/4 ounce, Fuggles hops plug
This is a 2-1/2 gallon recipe. Steep the grains 30 minutes in 1 quart of
150 degree water. Strain out grains and bring liquid up to 3 quarts. Add
stout kit, amber malt, gypsum and boil 45 minutes. After 15 minutes of
boiling, add Irish moss. After removing from heat, steep Fuggles hops
pellets for 4 minutes. Strain into ice water and pitch yeast.
