Big Time Brew Day with Dre

Standard

One of the best parts about brewing is getting together with a friend and brewing a big 10 gallon batch. The day after Thanksgiving I was able to meet up with my friend Dre to brew up a nice sweet stout.

Lactose addition

It was Dre’s first all grain batch and he is planning on using these 10 gallons of base beer to make a Chocolate Stout and a Blackberry Stout. The brew day went great, hitting all of our temps and having a pretty smooth day resulted in 10 gallons of 1.065 beer.

Stir-a-round

The final runnings were also boiled for about 2 hours to get a 1/2 gallon “extra” batch with a starting gravity of 1.079.

Cant wait to taste these beers!
