BTW, gravity in my house can be a scientific oddity at times....

It’s official. I’m on the club board in charge of membership, and Master brewer for firebrew. The beer will be a doppelbach. @OldNelly, got any tried and true recipes? I’m going to lager my batches, thinking whiskey chips in one, not sure on the others...

Caramelized Honey Porter has come out great every time. The recipe is for a ten gallon batch. I caramelize the honey until it's a nice deep brown and add it in the last five minutes of the boil. If you do the honey ahead of your brew day it will be quite stiff once it cools. A hot water bath gets it flowing again. Enjoy.

Pre-prohibition version. More alcohol, more hops. Also 10 gallons.Brew day-screenshot_20190307-201438_1552014965726.jpg

Thanks for the recipes! Thankfully I have a keggel and my club has a 10 gallon tun, but the recipe looks easy enough to split into a 5 gallon batch.

Pre prohibition! That’s awesome!

I was getting confused with cream ales. Googling it, some basically called it a SMSH....

My first batch will be per your recipe, but, researching all kinds of recipes, Iím thinking of trying to put a spin on it.

For your 10 gallon batch, add 1 pound of Lactose. Obviously Iíll have to taste the original recipe to see if the flavors would work together. Iíll probably break it down to a one gallon test batch, no sense in making a five gallon or ten gallon if it throws the flavor off. The idea is from a Oatmeal stout recipe someone gave me.

If I experiment with the recipe, do you think I should lessen any of the other grains, or just add to them and wind up with a higher OG? Iíd have to figure out if the yeast could handle the higher gravity and subsequent ABV without off flavors.

Iím going to brew the cream ale first, as thatís the next competition, so I have time to research this one.

Adding lactose will raise the OG but yeast cannot break it down so you end up with a higher final gravity. That gives the beer a slightly sweeter flavour and fuller mouthfeel. It sounds like you want to brew a milk stout, so here ya go.Brew day-screenshot_20190311-203621_1552358526780.jpg

Stopped by my home brew store today and picked up what I need to make a 5 gallon batch. Probably going to brew next Saturday or Sunday. Canít wait, but taxes this weekend....
