American Stout Recipe

    I know it has been 2+ years since this post. How did it turn out? Did you need the 2.25 oz. of EKG? I am looking for a milk stout recipe and this looked good. Have you brewed it again? Thanks.

  2. It came out pretty good. I think the amount of hops is needed to balance out the roastiness of the barley and the sweetness of the caramel malts. The milk stout that I made was very good I thought. Some judge thought it wasn’t sweet enough. I didn’t agree with him.
