Homebrew #14: Mild Stout in a Petite Keg

Continuing my transition to all-grain and smaller-batch brewing, I made a 2.5 gallon batch of stout for a work party. Pale malt, Maris Otter, and a little Crystal (80L), chocolate malt, roast barley, and flaked barley, with East Kent Goldings for the hops. 77 more words

Ignacio and I have been going on lots of winter/holiday dates, or holidates, this season. A lot of it was the usual winter flair, but it was enjoyable nonetheless. 553 more words

Slumbrew Yankee Swap 2014

The final beer review in Hoppy Boston’s barrel-aged beer week is Yankee Swap 2014, Slumbrew’s imperial stout aged in rum barrels from Turkey Shore distilleries. The first iteration of Yankee Swap (2013) used the same type of barrels, but was a completely different beer, an American strong ale instead of an imperial stout. 333 more words
