Where is this at?
That's why you buy FBS by the 4-pack or case
A bit OT, and not trying to threadjack, but I've considered blending ST Oat & Mokah.
I really like each, but the right blend of the two might be next level, if for no other reason than it packs a bigger punch to the dome/palate than FBS.
Any one done this?
Any recommendations to ratios?
I'd guess 60/40 Oat/Mokah blend might do it.
So has anyone tried to pour their stour through a coffee filter with some fresh ground vanilla coffee?
I would like to try that at the drinking level - not brewing, but I have had better luck steeping stouts to a glass with such additives in a tea ball for about 5 minutes. Vanilla beans, oily coffee beans (and for a shorter time also Black pepper seeds). Any experiment with stouts that did not work got a shot of Stoli Vanilla to fix it.
I got two of the DogfishHead Randall glasses, both broke almost immediately, but it turned me onto the idea of infusing other flavors into the glass right at serving. A metal tea ball strainer did great for hops, and lately with the winter coming on I have been putting stuff in porters and stouts.
But please, take the best ones as they are - Founders/Mikkeler/Peche Mortel, etc. I spec buy some bizarrely named and cheaply priced East European porters and stouts - who knows what infamy occurred during shipment, and I feel I can experiment with those. Surprisingly, Sierra Nevada has Narwhal this season, a very tasty stout that is fairly inexpensive for my trials. Anything that doesn't work gets the Stoli to finish it off.
I would recomend adding a similar style vanilla beer to it, like a mixture. I mixed stone chocate mint and knee deep tanilla once. Really tasty
I've done Vanilla Bean Ice Cream beer floats with Imperial stouts, but only half a pint of the beer.
I have came from left field and I added Sambuca to mine! Coffee and sambuca is a killer combo for me!
So here it is, I was drinking a BA Dogfather and this thread pop back in to my head. So I grabbed a cone style coffee filter and a scope of DD vanilla coffee and ran it straight through. What would you know it worked, vanilla/ coffee BA Dogfather, quiet tasty!
Next up BCBS Vanilla/Coffee (only b/c BCBS '12 a self beer here in Chicago, JK thanks a million Goose)...
i put KBS in chocolate ice cream and it was the most delicious thing i have ever had
I made FBS milkshakes the other night and they were a hit. Didn't tell the women what is was until later because I knew they wouldn't try it.
