Notes

Very dark and not too bitter, medium body, smooth mouth feel but has strong roast grain finish. I have been brewing this every year in July since 2009. This 15 gallon recipe will scale down to 5 easily. Usually fermented in two separate vessels, blended when completed and kegged. An alternate method I like is to split off 5 gallons when racking for secondary fermentation and rack onto 1 to 2oz of American Oak Chips. (Nice hint of the oak and I prefer to age this method two or three months)
