Augy Bottom Boys
Porter - 5.5 Gal - 6.2% ABV - 42 IBU, 37 SRM
This month’s beer is brought to you by Jeremy, he wanted to make a bayou themed beer named after his favourite Bluegrass band: The Soggy Bottom Boys. This recipe is his take on “Mississippi Mud”, a Black and Tan slow brewed beer from you guessed it, Mississippi. Black and Tans are a traditional blend of pale and dark beers that lend to some very unique beers.
While this is a porter, the Pilsner base keeps it light. The addition of a multitude of darker malts add complexity and depth. The end result is a beer that is light enough to be drank on a hot summers day, but complex enough to be enjoyed by the campfire. Close out the rest of the summer with this delicious enigma of a brew!
