Coffee Milk Stout Ingredients

Today I am starting a new series called the 12 Brews of Christmas. Here’s how it works…. For the next 12 days straight I will brew one batch of something; beer, mead, soda…. whatever. That way by the time Christmas rolls around Santa will have something to drink. ‘Tis the season people. Let us begin.

For the first brew of Christmas… I am making a stout for the first time. The recipe is based once again on a recipe from the most excellent “Make Some Beer Book.” I am following the recipe to the letter except for the Progress Hops which my home brew store didn’t have in stock. They recommended Fuggles as a replacement so who am I to argue? Fuggles it is.

60 minute Mash – Grains:
1.5 lb. (680.39g) Pale Malt
.4lb (90.72g) C120 Malt
.2lb. (90.72g) Chocolate Malt
.1lb (45.36g) Black Malt
.1lb (45.36g) Roasted Barley
.1lb (45.36g) Flaked Oats

The Boil:
.05 oz (1.42g) Magnum Hops
.25oz (7.09g) Fuggle Hops divided into fifths
.2lb. (90.72g) Lactose Sugar
1/4 cup (20g) Crushed coffee Beans. I roast my own coffee beans. I used Guatemalan Acatenango Geisha. Purchase green from Sweet Maria’s.
1/4 cup (20g) Roasted Chicory Root

Bottling Sugar: 3 tablespoons Maple Syrup
