My buddy Pete, who you have probably seen around here commenting, has been in Saudi Arabia for the last month and a half or so on a job. I really can’t explain exactly what he does, but know know that he has been suffering in a dry country x2 (it’s hot and alcohol is banned!) but he is coming home pretty soon. Right before he left he went on a brewing frenzy doing a milk stout, two pumpkin beers, and another beer that is escaping me right now. He sent my the recipe for his Molasses Milk Stout so I figured I would share it on here.
- 8 lbs Marris Otter
- 1.25 lbs Roasted Barely
- 1.00 lbs British Pale Chocolate
- .75 lbs Crystal 60 L
- .5 British Chocolate
- 1 cup Blackstrap Molasses 60 min
- 1 lbs Lactose Powder 15 min
- 1.0 oz Goldings Pellets 5.75 %AA 60 min
- British Ale Yeast 1098 Wyeast
It sounds wonderful and from the pictures I have received, looks wonderful as well. I haven’t gone through the calculations for the ABV but it should be a nice middle of the road beer. He collected 6 gallons of wort from his batch. Everything was mashed at 152 for 60 minutes and then a 60 minute boil with the molasses going for the full boil. Lactose in the last 15 to make it a milk stout. He said he has some changes planned for next time, but I don’t know what those are as of yet. Pete should be hope soon and hopefully we can drink some of this stuff not long after.
Pete sent me a few other recipes that I will be getting up here once I finally get over this cold. Once again I want to apologize for the lack of posting, I just have not been feeling well for the past week or so. The updates will pick back up once I get my life back in order.
