This time, however, we boosted the batch size to around six gallons to take advantage of our 6.5 gallon glass carboy.
Can you say blow-off tube? Because we have one.
Oh yea. We feel pimpin’. Nay. We be pimpin’.
Much like for the first Stout, we used a White Labs Irish Ale Yeast, pictured below.
We’ll be using this same yeast to ferment a 2 1/2 gallon batch of cider done in the most lovely of Mr. Beer’s with a new spout. Which has been gorilla glued into submission.
Our next batch will be a pumpkin beer.
