Milk Stout by Jim Baumann (All Grain Kit)

Milk Stout by Jim Baumann (All Grain Kit)

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Jim was looking for a dark, smooth, creamy mouth feel stout just like an Australian stout he had tasted years ago. Over the years, Jim found a clone that was close but needed some small changes. After many trials and test batches, he came up with this recipe that is very drinkable when it is fresh. It will get smoother with a couple months of aging and creaminess added by the lactose makes this a very good winter warming stout. Jim hopes you enjoy this beer as much as he has. Jim recommends WLP004 Irish ale yeast.

Good Beer...
Originally after trying my first bottle I thought I detected an off flavor but after a few weeks it mellowed and turned into a very good Milk Stout.

This beer absolutely rocks. This go around, I nitro'd it. I loved it and the nitro seemed to bring out more of the "roasty" flavor.

Great Kit
Great kit, easy drinking. Try making it a chocolate milk stout by throwing some cocoa nibs in also. Makes a very unique tasty beer.

Smooth and Easy to Drink
This is a great, easy to drink stout.
A little light on the dark malt flavors but very nice overall.
I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a session-able stout.

I brewed the all grain kit of this, and it was a winner. Great mouth feel. Very easy to drink. Starts out sweet and chocolaty, but finishes nice and dry. Nothing to harsh, and everything well balanced. Drinks like a nice Mocha. It even converted a few of my friends to drinking darker beers. You can't go wrong with this. I can't believe that there is only one review for it.

forget about how great the beer is... and realize that there isnt anything out there that gives you more satisfaction than making a beer created by a genius and then lettings your friends try it... and they leave telling everyone "you are a genius"

this beer is a must.
