This is mainly directed at the experienced stout brewers.

The missus has requested a Sweet Stout so I have come up with a recipe which may or may not be ideal. Anyone with some experience please add your .02c worth.

BTW, I do NOT want to use lactose as an adjunct so please don't suggest it.

I was planning to mash at 69C.

Hi TDA,
I would increase the bittering hop addition to achieve a BU / GU ratio of .6 which I think will be more to style and I would mash a little lower as well as IMO the crystal and possibly the treacle will impart a "sweetness" that should achieve what you want.
Give it a go and let us all know.
Cheers

I have a recipe that i have done from teh book Homebrew Favourites - placed well in one of teh American Comps.

It is called Sweet & Sour Stout - made for those that dont like roasty in your face stout.
Tasted quite malty and a little sweet, not heavy, - wit a mellow roast coming thru on the end palete.

I can have a look tonight if you are interested.

Hi TDA,

If I was building Joe a stout :) Remove the treacle
Remove the Galaxy
** Replace with either Munich or Vienna
** Increase the crystal to 500gms
Remove the Flaked barley
** Increase the Roast to 350 gms
Add 200 grams of Rolled oats to the main mash
If you are game add 250gms of Flaked maize to the mash as well.


Now did I mention cooking chocolate ??? Probably didn't :)


I consider challenger the Marmalade jam hop so loose that and try Fuggles or Goldings or if really wanting a stout that isn't a stout bitter and flavour with Simcoe.


Steve.

I didn't mention cooking chocolate did I ??
I'm glad i didn't

450gms 60 Crystal - i used Caramunich
450gm Roast Barley

56gms Cascade 6% 60min
14gms Cascade 6% 2min
1028 Liquid Yeast

Mash Grains in 11ltrs of water. Hold at 54C for 10mins. Raise Temp to 67.7 and hold for 60mins. Sparge and collect and boil for 60mins as per above hop schedule.

Munich malt can make a dramatic difference.
I've made stouts and porters with Munich in place of standard ale malts like Joe White - say around 2kg or so substituted - and received very favourable reports from SWMBO.
Yeasts like 1007 and 1338 make a difference compared to 1028 or 1084 as well.
Maybe you don't need to reinvent the wheel. If you have a good stout recipe that can be adjusted simply, why not?

Hi, I am interested to know why you would not use lactose to sweeten your stout?

It doesn't really do much in the way of sweetening, all it does is add body. That can be achieved just as easily through malt selection and mash regime.

Next time you use lactose, taste some to see. It's not sweet at all.

I think there is another, even more diminutive, brewer in Adelaide that this recipe might be better suited to :) .
I understand he likes the odd imperial stout.

Stu,
It would probably be more aptly named "Rumpelstiltskin Stout"

Thanks for the input, dicko, GMK, chiller and Bilph.

I am still undecided on which way to go but I will drop the Galaxy for Munich and possibly change the hops. The treacle will probably stay :beerbang: !

I will post the final recipe when I brew it.

Hi TDA,
Another adjunct which is good in a dark beer is "dark muscovado sugar" if you wanted to drop the treacle.
Cheers

Hi TDA,

The stout you tried at the recent Floccs was made with oats and flaked maize as well as Carafa 2 -- I also use the maize in my Belgian beers as it gives a very smooth mouth feel. You won't detect the taste but percieve there is a difference. It does help to round out the flavours because you don't want to get a stout that is sweet and astringent do you? :)

Also I never mash the dark grains and in the case of the stout you tried the crystal as well with the main mash. Add then into the tun either at mashout or as your are recirculating. When the runoff is black it will be close to time to runout the first sparge. Add your second sparge stir it up and recirculate again. You will get all the colour and flavour but no harshness.

Forget any sugars such as treacle etc., they will only add dryness. Try CaraAroma as the crystal addition and stay below 25 IBU's. Use Chiller's mashing suggestions and the dehusked malts such as Weyermann Carafa Special 2 and Weyermann Chocolate Wheat. Maize in a stout is quirky but it's my favourite adjunct, gopher it.
Use a 'sweeter' yeast too, Wyeast 1084 and 1338 European Ale could do it. Mash thick, hot and short for max sweetness.

If for some reason Joe doesn't like it Mark :) I'll take a couple of bottles :party:

It looks good. Maybe a touch more itterness OR for a lady 30 grams of hops at 5 minutes -- Saaz or Hallertau will work nicely --- just a thought.

I managed to find time to brew this yesterday. I changed the recipe a little.
As my PC was stuffed I couldn't use Beersmith for calculations so I underestimated sparge water deliberately and ended up with 19 litres in the boiler at 1064. I lose 2L to trub so had 17L in the fermenter. I topped this up with cool boiled Adelaide tap water :super: . This gave me 20L at 1057.

Mashed at 2L/kg water and a mash temperature of 69C. Hoping the beer will finish around 1020.

When this is up for drinking I will post back a report for anyone interested.
