Radio Zombie Phone In
RADIO ZOMBIE PHONE IN
RUSSIAN IMPERIAL STOUT
Why not try the firm favourite amongst the living (and the living dead), Radio Zombie Phone In.
This lobotomy-eyed caller is ready to rock. A vinyl black anthem with massive notes of espresso, bitter chocolate and roastiness on the nose. Followed by a playlist of bitter coffee, cocoa, dark chocolate and a touch of red berry. All building to a warm alcohol crescendo. Full-bodied, challenging and intense, behold this beast of a Russian Imperial Stout.
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.
Russian 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
Black, Carafa, Pale, Roasted Barley, Wheat, 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.
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!
