  • Triple-X Milk Stout Recipe

    Posted on January 25th, 2010 Dirk 1 comment

    This recipe has brewed for the 2009 National Teach-A-Friend-To-Brew Day.  I like malt forward beers.  This beer is a big malty beers with lots of mouthfeel and a bit a residual sweetness.  It comes across as having chocolate and coffee notes with some caramel.  The fermentation leaves some fruit notes like plum.  Not much head retention at this point, but that may change as the beer conditions. This recipe is from Brewing Classic Styles by Zamil Zainasheff & John Palmer.
