46 – American Stout

What do you get if you cross a traditional Dry Stout with a Black IPA? Why, the American Stout of course! All the rich malty body of a stout balanced but not dominated by the extra addition of new world hops. Mike tries this style with an addition of Sabro, a new(ish) variety of hop!

As usual we brew one ourselves, talk about the recipe before trying these commercial (sort of) examples:

The Kernal Brewery – India Porter – https://www.thekernelbrewery.com/
Chorlton & Alphabet Brewing Co – Dank Matter – https://alphabetbrewing.co.uk/
Siren Craft Brew – Let The Night In – https://www.sirencraftbrew.com/

We also try 3 of the beers that were brewed earlier this year, the Berliner Weisse from Episode 37, The IPL from episode 44 and the Kit Brew from Back To Basics Episode 4. Find out what went right, what went wrong and what we learned by brewing.
