#001 Russian Imperial Stout – 6.6%
Dark colored beer with a short off-white head. The recipe was adapted from the internet by Mark. It was our first time brewing with our new (homebrew) equipment, so sometimes we had to improvise at the site. We did not reach the original and final gravity we were aiming for, so the beer is only about 6.6%. We did get enough hops in there to give the beer a quite bitter taste. Especially the cascade kicks in big time. Those facts together make the beer more of a ‘black IPA’ instead of a RIS. Not what we intended for, but we learned a lot!
