4.7 / 5.07 ReviewsWatch out for the Krausen. Blow off hose neededI still have this beer in my secondary fermenter but I just want to give the rest of you a heads up. I do my primary fermentation in a 6 1/2 gallon carboy and I use a 3 piece airlock. I brewed this beer on a Sunday and it started fermenting within 6 hours of pitching the WL023 Burton Ale yeast. The Krausen seemed to have reached its peak at about Monday night but when I when to check on it on Tues morning the Krausen had risen to where there was about 1/2 gal of headspace left in the carboy. I received a phonecall at 12:30 the same day from my wife who had witnessed a hissing sound from the airlock and suddenly the plastic cap on the airlock popped off and krousen started pouring out. Unfortunately I don't have a blow off hose so we will see how this beer turns out after I keg it. This beer is quite capable of producing over 1 1/2 gal of Krausen so make sure you use a blow off hose. Also, Burton ale yeast will smell like rotten eggs on the second day of fermentation but it will go away after the fermentation ends and you let it sit in a secondary for 2 weeks. Can't wait to try this beast of a brew. I didn�?���t make a started for the yeast either. Happy Brewing!December 6, 2011Awsome brewI finished my keg of this stout about 3 weeks ago. This was a very good Stout! I previously stated my problems in my other review with the blow off hose and the rotten egg smell and I just wanted to say that everything turned out alright and this beer is a keeper! Will brew this one again!February 3, 2012Great, made a few tweaksAdded 12 oz of lactolose total as well as 8oz chocolate malt to the mash. Added 4 oz chocolate nibs and 2 oz cocoa powder to the secondary and came out as, "a milk shake," as my wife described it. Fabulous stout. I am certain the regular recipe is tasty as wellMarch 3, 2013favorite stylethis is my favorite recipe for my favorite type of beerOctober 2, 2012stoutThis is a great beer. I like stouts, and I really like this one. Has a nice sweet finish to it.July 4, 2013Could use more lactoseIt came out well, but I'd have preferred another 4 to 8 ounces of lactose. I used the Wyyeast 1028 and kept the first few days fermentation below 70. I'd brew it again.November 17, 2012Not badI used a full pound of lactose, not half a pound._x000D_This yest gives off odors, but they clean up after themselves. Try not to let it ferment above 70 degrees.November 24, 2012
