I've gotten several requests for the recipes with which I've won
awards. I believe all but the Imperial Stout and Dubbel-style
have been posted. I won't post the Dubbel-style, since I don't
agree with the judges -- I thought the beer was quite a bit worse
than they did.
This Imperial Stout is less alcoholic than many others I've had --
this is partly due to the fact that the Laaglander extract is not
very fermentable. The Laaglander is also partly responsible for the
high FG. This is a very creamy, smooth beer.
