GENUINE STOUT

GENUINE STOUT

You will need:

 

  •   1 Can Morgans Dockside Stout
  •   1 Kg Bag Stout Combo
  •   1 Stout Grain Pack
  •   1 Fuggles Hop Bag
  •   1 Packet Safale Yeast

 

 

 Procedure

 

  1. Well in advance of starting, place 5-10 litres of water in closed containers in a fridge and chill*
  2. Place Stout Grain Pack and 1 litre of hot tap water in a pot and steep for 15 to 30 minutes.
  3. Strain the grain through a sieve into a saucepan. Rinse the grain with another 500mls hot water and collect this liquid in the saucepan as well. Bring the liquid to the boil for 5 minutes.
  4. After boiling the liquid from the grain for 5 minutes, turn off the heat and place the Fuggles Hop Bag into the pot for 10 minutes to steep. Add the liquid to the fermenter, but keep the bag out.
  5. Dissolve the Morgans Dockside Stout and Stout Combo in the fermenter adding hot water if needed.
  6. Add chilled water to make up 20 litres at 20-25 degrees Celsius and stir vigorously for 5 minutes**
  7. Add the hops bags to the fermenter.
  8. Add Safale Yeast and stir gently. Seal fermenter and store in cool conditions ***

 

Notes:

*  Use sterilized containers with lids. Do not freeze the water.  Use the chilled water to reach a satisfactory temperature in your fermenter  and add yeast immediately.  Leaving your fermenter to cool before adding yeast can significantly increase the risk of introducing bad bacteria into your brew

 

** Reducing the total volume to 20 litres will give a richer, more full bodied stout.

 

***Try to maintain a cool, even temperature in the fermenter.  If ambient temperature is high, place the fermenter in a tray and wrap it in a towel with one end in a container of water.  Placing the fermenter on a concrete slab can also help to keep the temperature constant.

Use an old fridge with a Brewers Choice Brewing Thermostat to ensure perfect brewing conditions all year round.
