Brewing a Milk Stout – Brewing a Milk Stout

I really wanted to brew a great Milk Stout, but I couldn't find the ingredients I wanted… now that doesn't exactly mean that this isn't going to be a great beer, but I shifted my focus from trying to come up with a good milk stout recipe to doing a little experiment…

Here's the recipe that I used:

8 lbs Maris Otter Pale Malt
.5 lbs Brown Malt (Thomas Fawcett)
.5 lbs De-bittered Black malt
.25 lbs Special B malt
.25 lbs Roasted Barley

1 lb Lactose (late addition)
1 oz Kent Golding hops (60 min)

RO water
1/3 tsp Gypsum
2/3 tsp Calcium Chloride

I think this beer will be a good beer, but really what I wanted to do was collect yeast and ensure that the yeast was good because I want to re-use that yeast 6 months and 12 months from now…

I shouldn't talk down the beer, but since I shifted my focus I have to say that it's experimental and well, stay tuned for the beer review to find out about the beer or check out my blog to see updates on the yeast experiment…
