Red Velvet Stout – Brewed on Anvil Foundry & Chilled with Jaded Brewing Scylla – Part 2 of 2

Essentially we’re brewing a Milk Stout or Oatmeal Stout based on how your looking at it but the goal is to build an amazingly velvet chocolate stout to help carry the Red Velvet flavoring which will be added as a back sweetening using Amoretti Red Velvet natural flavoring.

6 lbs Maris Otter
2 lbs Munich I
1 lb Flaked Oats
1 lb Vienna Malt
12 oz Chocolate Wheat
12 oz Pale Chocolate
4 oz Caramel 80L
1 oz Columbus hops 16.2 A added at 65 minutes before flame out

Last 10 minutes:
1/2 Whirlfloc tablet
12 oz Lactose Sugar (last 10 minutes)
1 heaping tsp of Wyeast Yeast Nutrient

Omega 048 British XI Yeast

Equipment I used to brew this batch of beer:
Anvil Foundry 10.5 Gallon All-in-One brewing system with recirculation pump kit
Jaded Brewing Scylla
Awesome propane burner – Great quality.
Anvil 10 gallon Brew Kettle
Five Star Super Moss HB

2x American IPA – Anvil Foundry Small Batch Adapter – Brew House Efficiency – Back to Back Review

OMG! Yes it is that time…time to test the Anvil Foundry Small Batch Adapter to see if it has a positive impact on brew house efficiencies!

This is Part 2 of 2. I did 2 – American IPAs back to back – The same grains, the same amount of pellet hops, the same grain crush, the same PH, the same amount of starting and finishing liquid! Did it make a BHE – Brew House Efficiency difference? Might need to watch part 1 – https://youtu.be/XhNqrKnYGB0

Hell Yes it did…but YMMV – Your Mileage May Vary.

Recipe for a 5.25 gallon batch for the American IPA:
8 lbs – Pale Malt – 2 Row Belgian
1 lb 11 oz – Vienna Malt
1 lb – Carared Malt
8 oz – Acid Malt
3.5 oz Caramel / Crystal Malt 80L
1 oz – Columbus (16.2% A) – 45 minute addition
Last 5 minute additions:
2 oz – Idaho Gem (14.1% A) – 5 minute addition (1st brew)
2 oz – Eukanot (13.1% A) – 5 minute addition (2nd brew)
Added 1 heaping tsp of Wyeast Yeast Nutrient Added 4 oz cooled wort with 1/4 tsp of Super Moss HB
Imperial Labs – #44 Kveik Blend Yeast (1st Brew)
Framgarden – (2nd Brew) (Failed – so we repitched Ebbegarden)

Dry hopped for 7 days after fermentation:
2.5 oz – Idaho Gem (14.1% A) (1st brew)
2.5 oz – Eukanot (13.1% A) (2nd brew)

Equipment I used to brew this batch of beer:
