Beer Style: Dry Stout  (13A)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons

Dry Stout


This stout turned out pretty tasty and the coffee flavor seems to come through more in the aftertaste with the predominant flavor being the dark malts. I should probably have let it ferment in the secondary a bit longer or not used anything for priming because I got a few gushers after a couple months---but by then, most of the beer was gone anyway.
