BrewDog VS Buxton - Deep Slumber
Alc Vol. 8.5%
TOFFEE APPLE RYE PORTER
Rest easy with this redolent rye porter that packs enough flavour to tackle the Peak District solo. Seven different malts rise like awakened giants to yield spiced red apple, toffee and fudge, as the dream ticket of Columbus and Cascade bring a balanced bitterness from the ridgelines of the distant Pacific.
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.
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
Chocolate Wheat, Flaked Oats, Pale, Rye, Wheat, Medium Crystal, Extra Dark Crystal
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.
Cascade, Columbus, Fuggles
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!
