Barrel Bottom Black Bitter

Classification: brown ale, extract

Source: Ted Manahan ( Issue #309, 11/23/89

Barrel Bottom is a very dark, rich and bitter brew with a full head of tan foam. It could pass as a stout. The only bad part is that my 5 gallons is almost gone, in less than two months. Ingredients were obtained from William's Brewing, the Australian extract is their darker variety.



Soak malt in a pot of hot water for 1 hour. While soaking, begin boiling Australian dark malt with the Perle hops. After 1 hour, add Cascade hops and turn off heat. Steep about 30 minutes. Strain everything into primary and add cold water to bring volume to 5 gallons. Pitch yeast when cool.
