Today, these stouts are prized for their intense roasted malt flavors and high alcohol content.

What to Expect When Brewing

Brewing this kit will take a full day but the actual hands-on time is only about 2 hours. First, you’ll steep the specialty grains in hot water to extract color, flavor and body. Next, you’ll add the malt extract and bring the wort to a boil. At this point the Nugget hops are added to impart the characteristic hop bitterness. Finally, the Willamette hops go in towards the end of the boil to provide aroma. After chilling, the wort is transferred to a fermenter and the yeast is pitched. Fermentation takes 1-2 weeks. Once fermentation is complete, it’s time to bottle – just add the included priming sugar to carbonate. 2 more weeks of bottle conditioning and your stout will be ready to drink!
