BA Ten Ton Truck Christmas Edition
This heavyweight stout gets festive.
Hauling a midnight mass of dark matter. Chimney black with Christmas pudding on the nose. As complex as Sudoku, this really is the gift that keeps on giving. A sled-load of bittersweet, rich, toasty, nutty flavours are unwrapped with smooth chocolate and coffee liqueur in hot pursuit. Full bodied, warming and rounded - just like Santa.
Ten Ton Truck - I'm dreaming of a Stouty Christmas.
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)
Original Gravity (abbreviated OG) is a measure of the fermentable and unfermentable substances in a beer wort before fermentation. Those substances are often the sugars that will be converted to alcohol during the fermentation process.
BA Imperial Stout
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
Brown, Cara, Chocolate Wheat, Crystal, Pale
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
water, malted barley, wheat, oats, coffee, hops, yeast, honey, demerara sugar.
