Draft Day Draft- American Stout- AG Draft Day Draft All Grain 5 gallons approx. 1.072 OG 1.018 FG 7.07% ABV 56 IBU 80% Efficiency 10lb Marris Otter 1lb 60L 1lb roasted barley 1lb chocolate malt .5lb black barley .5lb wheat 1oz 16%AA @60mins 1oz 12%AA @20mins US-05 dry yeast packet. Any clean yeast will work. Mash at 152-154F for 60 minutes. I actually mashed this one overnight for the first time and it still turned out great. Sparge to collect 6.5gals to boil, reducing to about 5.5gals. Pitched yeast around 76F but brought temp down to 64F after placing in fermenting fridge. Fermented at 62-64F for 6 days, raised to 70 for 4 days. This one has some nice coffee and chocolate flavor to it through the grains, but I added a cold coffee extract at kegging. I took .25C Kona blend coffee grounds and mixed with 24oz water, placed in fridge overnight for cold extraction. Added to the keg. The coffee flavor is intense for about 3-4 days but after a week it is perfect. I have also added cocoa nibs in the past for more chocolate (that's a real lady pleaser!) Made this for about the 7th or 8th time and just kegged, ready for my Fantasy Football draft in a couple weeks. This one has won multiple awards including 1st place in category (for both stout and specialty beer). Won a 3rd place BOS as well. I love this beer. This is almost a gateway beer for me for all of my coffee lover friends. They cant believe a beer can taste so good with flavors they recognize like coffee and chocolate.
