As it is coming up to Autumn I decided it was time for another stout. Just like with Blonde Beggar II, I took a recipe I put together last year and modified it for the ingredients I currently have.
Incidentally I had a bottle of the original Blonde Beggar hiding away so I compared them and the more recent version is far superior so I wonder will this stout be better than last years? I have no bottles to compare.
Well here is the recipe, I brewed it today, well when it was still Saturday that is. The OG ended up as 1.044 which is a little less than expected but higher than cloaked stranger was.
