AG#44 – Liquorice & Treacle Stout

Posted on: December 5, 2010

Liquorice & Treacle Stout – I’ve been thinking about both liquorice and treacle in a stout for a while. This is going to be V.1 (proceed with caution) and next weekend I will do a V.2 (less cautious) with a lot more Treacle in it, somewhere between 2-5% of the malt bill.

Fermentables:
Pale Malt – 1990g – 70.3%
Flaked Barley – 280g – 10%
Caramalt – 280g – 10%
Roasted Barley – 125g – 4.5%
Chocolate Malt – 125g – 4.5%
Sugar, Black Treacle – 21g – 0.7%

Hops:
Centennial @ 60 mins – 17g
Centennial @ 5 mins – 9g

Copper Additions:
Liquorice Powder @ 5mins – 10.4g
Protafloc Tablet @ 15-20mins – Half a Tablet

Final Volume: 12 Litres
Original Gravity: 1.055
Final Gravity: 1.016
Alcohol Content: 5% ABV
Total Liquor: 19 Litres
Mash Liquor: 7 Litres
Mash Efficiency: 80 %
Bitterness: 37 EBU
Colour: 235 EBC

Water treatment to the Stout Profile in the GW Calc, added to the Malts and blended / Mashing in.
Mash for 90mins and Boil for 60mins.
Yeast probably just Safale S-04.

The malts, pale malt; caramalt; roasted barley; chocolate malt; flaked barley:

Mini Mash Tun in use for the first time in ages, it just manages this brew length:

I cooled a bit far, oops, popped it by the radiator in the Kitchen to warm up:

Kind of a drawn out brewday as I was finishing off the 50L brewery I was making.

*Bottled 15th Dec ā€™10 with 30g White Sugar, tasting plenty liquorice and hints of the Treacle still in there šŸ™‚
