VELVET THUNDER - Imperial Stout Recipe

Velvet Thunder

Imperial Stout – 5.5 Gal - OG 1.089 – FG 1.015 – ABV 9.4% - IBU 54 – SRM 47

This beer is BIG. It is a whopping 9.4% ABV. It is thick, opaque with a large dark brown frothy head. It had extremely rich notes of chocolate, coffee, and lovely malt character. Its balanced out by our newly arrived 2020 hops, and it features one of our favourite yeasts – Cali Ale from Escarpment Labs.

Note: As we’ve mentioned, this is a BIG beer. So, for those that don’t want something as big as this or don’t have the equipment to brew an imperial stout – we have made a lighter version of this recipe.
