* Double stout beer -- I would not recommend making this as your
first beer, but if you are into brewing and like a strong stout, then
give this one a try. Don't be in a hurry to drink it, though, it
really benefits from a long aging. I got the original recipe from
Peter Lester in rec.food.drink, and formatted it for my local
brewfriends. Then I thought that the net at large might enjoy it,
too, so here it is with some additional notes from my experience at
making it. Yield: Makes about 2 cases.
* Lester's initial specific gravity was 1.086 and his final specific
gravity was 1.020 (alcohol about 8 percent). His fermentation time
was 11 days (a slow batch).
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. As far as I can tell, it's still getting better (a
year later), so try not to drink it all up right away.
* Ingredient note: I didn't know what a licorice stick was, until I
asked the clerk at my brewstore. The one he gave me was about 1/3
inch in diameter and about 3 inches long. It was dark black, and not
sweet to the taste at all. It seems to be a standard brewing
ingredient. Sorry I can't be more specific about it.
: Difficulty: For experienced beer brewers only.
