A SLICE OF AMERICANA IN THE TANK
Another Family Brew Day is in the books and we’ve got a slice of Americana in the tank!
Siporah, Daniel, Carrie, T.J. Cara, led by senior brewer April Anderson, decided to go big with this one! The Brewshound team have created Apple-achian Pie Stout.
In brewing this beer, the team used half a dozen specialty malts and as well as vegan apple butter, blackstrap molasses and raw sugar. And to give that full on apple pie flavor, the team also added apple pie spice, a touch of fresh ginger and Madarina Bavaria hops. This hop variety is relatively new and the Brewhounds say hop characteristics will impart a citrus note that emulates freshly squeezed lemon found in traditional apple pie filling. A touch of tartness from the hops will balance the sweetness of malt. Um yea, and with an ABV above 8%, you’re gonna want to sit and savor this stout, just like a slice of Grandma’s apple pie!
