It was time to brew the 2022 batch of bourbon stout which is a tweaked version of my 2021 recipe which was based upon New Holland Brewing Company’s Dragon’s Milk stout as published in Brew Your Own (BYO) magazine in the January-February 2008 edition.
Brewed on the Blichmann Engineering BrewEasy 10 Gallon Electric Brew System.
Fermented in a Kegland Kegmenter.
Aged in a Spike Flex+ and a Fermzilla All Rounder.
