Brewcraft Beer Recipe Kit / Ultimate Series: Russian Imperial Stout

Current stock: 0

(BCU190) An Imperial Stout is a BIG Stout taken to an extreme, and this beer recipe kit is no exception. It boast 10 pounds of malt extract and other high-fermentable sugars. Wolf! This produces an insane Stout that posses roughly 10% alcohol. This homebrew has all the characteristics of a regular Stout... just a LOT more of it. Think of it as compressing 3 glasses of your favorite Stout into one glass, and you'll have an idea of what you'll be up against. Its color is very close to black with just a slightly noticeable hint of reddish hue. As you might expect, the beer is very full-boded. It has a lot of malt flavor from chocolate to burnt. You may also detect some carmel-like flavors, but expect a dry finish, regardless. There is also a hint of fruity aroma. This is a result of the beer yeast working hard to produce alcohol levels higher than normal. The hops are barely noticeable, but are present. All-in-all, this beer is sipper, so it's best to have that mindset when drinking.

Each Brewcraft recipe kit contains all the ingredients you need to brew 5 gallons of beer in about 2 weeks. That's over 50 bottles of homebrew!... Brewcraft even throws in the bottle caps. These are "partial mash" kits. That means you get the best of both worlds. You get the ease of using malt extract, and you get the richness of using specialty grains. The hops, grains, extract and other necessary ingredients all come pre-measured to produce the optimal wort for the style of homebrew you are making. The folks a Brewcraft have worked hard to make sure that each of these beer recipe kits brew the absolute best beer possible. And just as important, each beer recipe kit comes with complete and specific directions. They assume you know absolutely nothing about brewing beer. They take you by the hand and guide you through each and every step. (Equipment Not Included)
