Milk Stout No. I

The guest author of the post a few back on Decolonization and Bolivian style recently announced that his wife is expecting their first child, so we decided to celebrate! His wife’s favorite style is a milk stout, so we thought it would be appropriate to brew this one up to celebrate now and keep enough on hand to toast the new arrival.

Below the recipe has a much higher OG than it comes out as, but that’s because we intended to over-sparge, draw some off and mess around with it.

Here’s the recipe we came up with:

Notes

Ended up with 27 L of wort.

OG 1.058
FG 1.013

5.2% ABV
Bottled 14 Apr 2013 w/ 100g sugar.

 

Extra wort:
1 gal batch: caramelized some sugar and added it to the boil.
Used 20 g of mate as dry hop.
OG 1.034
FG 1.012
2.9% ABV
Bottled 14 Apr 2013 with 21 g sugar.

We also ended up with another 3 or so L of a mix of both worts, probably at about 1.035. Then I added the rest of the honey in my fridge, some chancaca (which probably bumped it up a ways), and let it ferment. FG was 1.006, so I’d estimate it’s around 4% ABV.
