Carboy Death Tribut Stout Extract
ABV6.20 %
BJCP Style
16B. Stout, Sweet Stout
I named it so because I broke my glass carboy while I was rinsing it out after the primary was done and it happened to be my only batch in it. I am not sure the original gravity reading because I didn't get an accurate reading but when I calculated it it came out to be around 1.076 so somewhere between 1.070 and 1.076 is about right. My apparent attenuation was about 71% and I am assuming the brew turned out to be 6.7. Sure felt like it..... It's probably in the 6.2-6.7 ABV range.

Recipe Details
Tasting Notes This is a serious stout in both flavor and alcohol content. Very rich and malty with a mildly sweet molasses taste. Its not too sweet, though, because I am not a fan of super sweet beers. It has a very nice bitterness to it as well. This is not one that is able to be consumed quickly.
Awards None, but everyone I have given it too says it is amazing (I am really not one to boast...)
Boil Volume 4.00 gallons
Boil Time 60 minutes
Batch Size 5.00 gallons

Procedure I steeped the Roasted Barley, Black Patent, Crystal 120L, and Rolled oats in 2 to 2.5 gallons of water at 165F for 30min. Sparge with 1 to 1.5 gallons of water at 170F but leave enough room for extract so it doesn't overflow! I also boiled the 1lb of corn sugar in about 2 cups of water about 15 min before the boil was done and added it in at 10min before the boil was completed to prevent caramelizing of the sugar.
