Brewing

A modification of Brewer's Best Irish Stout -

http://www.highgravitybrew.com/productcart/pc/Brewer-s-Best-Irish-Stout-p845.htm

We used 1oz simco bittering hops during the boil and 1/2 oz of cascade aroma hops in the last 5 minutes of the boil.

Fermenting

  • Primary ferment: Plastic tub
  • Pitched Wyeast 1084 Irish Ale yeast. Mfg ?/?/2012, started 8/26/2012. Not sure on the yeast.

Racking

We tested the gravity at the racking and tasted it a bit. It tasted fine, but a little high gravity. We suspect that the yeast may have stopped.

Kegging

Kegged at gravity 1.019. The fermentation had definitely restarted if it had stopped before as a small amount of head was evident when taking the gravity and kegging. The flavor was a bit improved over the previous taste. Added 450ml of water and 1/2 cup priming sugar, boiled for sterilization.
