Double Stout

Classification: stout, Russian imperial stout, extract

Source: Spencer W. Thomas ( Issue #732, 9/26/91

My batch fermented in about a week (house temperature ranging between 60 and 68). It was barely drinkable after 6 weeks, but delicious after 3 months. It's now been almost 5 years, and the last few bottles are a little faded and mellow but still quite good.



Combine water, dark malt extract, and Bullion hops. Boil for 20 minutes. Add black patent malt through Irish moss. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add Kent Golding hops. Steep for 5 minutes. Cool and add yeast nutrient and ale yeast. When fermentation has "stopped", add priming sugar and bottle.
