Sweet Stout

Description:

It took me three tries, but I finally got a batch that was closer to the original Mackeson sweet stout than I could have hoped for. It was wonderful! After aging about three months, it was as wonderfully smooth, dark, and sweet as the real Mackeson. Maybe better.

  • 1 pound, chocolate malt, cracked
  • 1-1/2 pounds, black patent malt
  • 12 ounces, crystal malt, cracked

  • 2 ounces, Kent Goldings leaf hops
  • 1 teaspoon, salt
  • 1 teaspoon, citric acid
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons, yeast nutrient
  • ale yeast
