brew came out....ok. kind of some kind of off flavor idk if coming from the fermented blueberry. maple in the keg was way too sweet at first but pretty balanced now. at one point i took the keg out into the garage floor for a week or two and i think some of it fermented away. also i wonder if the maple just sat at the bottom for the most part being that it went in cold and th ebeer was cold.

not sure what to do next time tbh. not sure if blueberry and stout really mix together well ever or if there is some cleaner way to do it.

brew night last night went well. ended up doing one standard batch of pancakes from bisquick, used water and mix (i.e. no milk, eggs, or oil) which was two cups of mix, turned out to be about 11 healthy sized pancakes. drizzled some maple syrup for effect before tossing in the mash.

i ran out of 2row so supplemented with a little pilsner.

i did not have london on hand. subbed in mangrove jack liberty bell (says good for english and american) plus another pack of us05.

hit OG and volume pretty much spot on. 90 minute mash and 3 hour boil.

will plan to add some blueberries in a couple days. the 16oz maple syrup i will plan to add to the keg when i rack it.

repurposing snow delay into this pancake stout. also have the mona lisa based version available but i have the ingredients for this right now. will be light on srm but who cares.

suggesting 16 oz maple syrup to cold crashed beer at kegging time. will keep cold. could maybe want to taste at this time and add more if needed. will it mix?

pancakes will be cooked regular from mix and added to mash.

blueberries will get frozen from store and thaw and puree at home.


Update 1/1/19 : changed grain bill slightly as I only had 9.25 lb 2 row on hand , will make up for it with dme. Also just realized I've probably been using too little water. Usually 1:1. Using more water this time. Recommended 1.25 to 1.5 so I'm in with 1.34. Hopefully I can fit that...

update 12/7/18 : modified original "rain delay" recipe for this one, adding oats for body and more malt to boost up to hopefully around 8%. should be noted that rain delay came out more like a stout than a porter. now we will officially call it stout.
bumping up hop additions to better match the malt bill changes. swapping out for warrior on bittering hops so i dont end up with leftover northern brewer. could age some on bourbon oak.
=====original rain delay notes april/may 2018=====

toast the coconut until golden brown about 40 minutes

this recipe says to add to secondary but also says to add around pitch time...>? i would probably add 5 days before kegging.
