Leopold's Darkness

Sour stout similar to Tart of Darkness from the Bruery.

Recipe base on 70% Mash Efficiency

OG: 1.057
ABV: 5.6%
SRM: 38
IBU: 4

Mash @ 158 F

Grain
10 lbs Two Row
1 lb Crystal 60L
1 lb Flaked Oats
8 oz Black Roasted Barley
6 oz Chocolate Malt

Hops
0.5 oz Czech Saaz @ 60

Yeast
1 package wyeast roeselare
Do not make a starter when using sour blend packs

Allow beer to ferment until desired level of sourness is reached, for me this was about 6 months.

Once you are satisfied with the level of sourness in the beer add 3 oz of medium toast oak cubes soaked in bourbon. Leave on oak until desired level of oak character has been reached.

The Wyeast Roeselare blend contains two strains of Brettanomyces , Lactobacillus, and Pediococcus. Be careful if you are planning on bottling this one since the Brett will keep working on the sugars long after you think it's 'finished.'

Very cool. May be time to brew another stout for us.

Can't believe we only have one or two IPAs in this list so far though.

I'm thinking it's because honestly, there doesn't seem much variation to an IPA than hops used. And most of these recipes bring something special to the mix. Just a possible observation.

True. and it's not hard to google "two hearted clone" and get what you want.


Zappas' zombie dust recipes would be good to have on here though.

Here is the Belgian IPA that I had on cask at WYES Private VIP Tasting this past year. Liked the outcome. Sorry for the lack of OG information, if you ever brew at my house with me you would notice that I have trouble writing anything down at all. Lucky I get the recipe sometimes.

Belgian IPA (no cute name for this one)
5 gallons

4 lbs Pilsner Malt
4 lbs Munich
1 lb Wheat
1 lb C60L

Mash at 151

28 g Nugget 60
28 g Amarillo 10
28 g Cascade 10
84 g Willamette 1
48 g Willamette Dry (7 Days)
28 g Cascade Dry (7 Days)

Safbrew S-33 dry yeast

Once fermentation starts add:
1 lb Sugar
.5 lb Brown Sugar


For WYES I put the beer in a cask with 4 oz Cacao Nibs.

Do you boil this at all or just throw it in?

I believe I made a simple syrup out of it.

Gonna brew a 5 gal batch of Chocolate Maple Porter.

I just need to buy/drink another 4 cases of Grolsch.

Need an extra capper? I have two and would gladly give you one vs you drinking that much Grolsch.

Check that.. I only need 26 more bottles. I already have 20.

I'll probably brew it next weekend and bottle it 14 days later.

Need to get another 46 bottles so I can start a new batch every 14 days.

Anyone have a good recipe for a Vanilla Porter or Oatmeal Stout?

I've posted 2 i've made and they are very different from each other. I also have ideas for 3 more IPA's to brew this year.
I find the variations in flavor you get from hops vary dramatically, and used in combination with the right malts, they can be outstanding.
My 3rd Prime, and Jolly Klaus, are very, very good, IMO.

Just brewed this one, still conditioning in the bottle but it was very good going in.

Almost 2 weeks since a recipe was posted, so time to change that. Tasted my first all-grain porter last night. Added cold steeped coffee and vanilla puree when I kegged it, so final verdict is still TBD. Here's the base recipe though.

6 lbs 2 Row
6 lbs Maris Otter
12 oz Carapils/Dextrine
12 oz Caramel/Crystal 40L
10 oz Chocolate Malt
6 oz Black Patent Malt

Mash for 60 minutes at 152.
Batch sparge with 4.25 gallons at 168.

1.5 oz Northern Brewer 60 minutes
0.5 oz Northern Brewer 0 minutes

White Labs London Ale (WLP013) with yeast starter.

Fermented for 20 days. Cold steeped 4 oz of dark roast coffee grounds in 1 quart of water for 24 hours. Added to keg along with 1.5 oz of vanilla puree before kegging.

SG 1.068
FG 1.014
ABV 7.1%
IBUs 36.5

I've never used vanilla puree, is this similar to vanilla extract or pureed vanilla beans?

It's kind of a mix of both. Extract plus pureed vanilla beans. Much thicker than extract alone. If you use it to make something like ice cream, you'll see the "speckles."

Looks good!

I've thought about posting my simple saison but it really is so simple that it probably isn't worthy of taking space in this thread. I want to tweak my 100% brett strawberry wheat / hoppy wheat (same base brew for each) before posting it and want to see how my 100% brett pale ale tastes after carbonation before posting it.

Final verdict is

Best beer I've ever made. Perfect blend of coffee and vanilla, neither of which overpowers. The coffee is prevelant on the nose and on the front end, with the vanilla on the back. Very smooth. I will make this one again, and soon. Probably gonna brew it for Zapp's.

You and me both. I want to re-brew that Pilsner on yeast cake and brew an all galaxy IPA on the iron brewer yeast cake I've got right now. We'll see if I can get any of that done any time soon.
