CHRISTMAS SPICED SOUR STOUT AGED IN COGNAC BARRELS
The darkest months herald another side to Christmas. Demons flicker in the fireside shadows as legends are repeated, made real. Krampus has stolen a seat at your table with this devilish take on mulled wine; a sour red aged for half the year in cognac barrels. Blended to perfection with winter spices this is a perfectly wicked Christmas treat.
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)
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
Carafa, Oats, Pilsner, Wheat, Caramalt
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.
Hallertauer Blanc, Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, Magnum
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!
