Byron Burch, founder of The Beverage People, won Homebrewer of the Year with the stout that inspired this recipe. A very high gravity stout with rich chocolate and roast malt flavors, it epitomizes the ale style originallly brewed for Russian Empress, Catherine II, in the 1780's. This version is a wonderful beer for a cold winter's night.
This kit contains all the ingredients you'll need to make five gallons of beer. You will be following a two stage fermentation system using a plastic bucket as a primary fermentor to contain the beer until heavy foaming ceases. The beer is then siphoned into a secondary fermentor, a five gallon carboy where the beer stays until fermentation is complete.
Be sure you have all the equipment below before getting started. We carry everything you'll need to get brewing.
