Competiton beer brewing at the Micro Pig Brewery this weekend and the piglets get to use their new toy, a fermentation chamber. :-)
After receiving confirmation we have a place in the Brooklyn Wort for the second year in a row, we’ve decided to brew a sweet stout. I’m thinking a beer that close to the quality of Left Hand Milk Stout might go down well with the judges, so we’re using lactose and plenty of roasty chocolate.
Shooting for a 5.3% beer, the piglets are hoping to blend oats, caramel 60L, roast 375L, US chocolate, flaked barley, pale extract and Munich 10L; I’m hoping for a smooth and silky milk stout.
Now that I have complete control of fermentation temps with the Micro Pig Brewery’s with the fermentation chamber, I can only blame myself and Rumpelstiltspig for off flavours. That beard of his definitely needs a wash.
Set to 67F, the Johnston A419 thermostat controls the chest freezer’s temperature, and all it takes to set it up is to plug the thermostat into the power cable and tape the probe to the carboy.
Even a piglet can do that right?
