Session Stout – 5.5 Gal - OG 1.045 – FG 1.010 – ABV 4.5% - IBU 39 – SRM 32
“It’s Like You’re Drinking Noothiiiiing At All”
It’s January, the great, delicious holidays are over and after all that boozy food filled holiday fun it is unlikely a lot of us would fit into Flanders sexy red ski suit. While this month’s stout won’t get you back to the gym it is designed to be enjoyable and easy to drink, but a little lower in calories and alcohol than most stouts. With a healthy infusion of flaked oats and oat malt it still has the body and presence of a big stout. Big notes of chocolate abound, and the Chinook hops keep the sweetness in check.
For the new brewers out there, this is a nice and easy recipe to create. Because of its dark, rich colour it might look imposing to brew – but the opposite is true. This is one of the simplest beers to make! (But it is still delicious)
