  1. Everything went well while brewing this recipe. We hit all of our target temperatures, addition timing, wort volume, and starting gravity (5.5 gal @ 1.060). We used the most basic equipment (kettle, heat exchanger, fermentor) and were completely finished in 2.5 hours. Fermentation started slowly the next day, but that is because we did not warm the yeast up before pitching. Had we done that, I believe that the fermentation would have started just after a few hours. I normally remove the yeast from the cooler as a first step…They need time to wake up before getting to work!

    1. Thanks for checking out the site. The beer turned out great and did not last more than a week! It ended up being a Brown Porter instead of a stout, however it was easy to drink and had a lot of flavor.
