Description

Only a hoser would pass up the chance to brew a stout influenced by the Great White North. Similar to "All Out", this recipe combines a variety of dark malts, cacao nibs, and ground coffee for a remarkably rich flavor profile, and then takes it to new vistas with an addition of maple syrup and Canadian whiskey-soaked oak chips. The maple syrup and oak chips are added to simulate the barrel-aging process used for making Founders Canadian Breakfast Stout®, or "CBS". The result is a deeply complex stout that would have Bob and Doug McKenzie swearing off Elsinore beer after one sip. Not to cause a kerfuffle, but patience is key when brewing Sorry Aboot Brunch Stout. We recommend conditioning the beer for 2 to 6 months after the oak chips are added. Best enjoyed in your favorite tuque with a box of Timbits.

Please note: this recipe calls for 2 oz of Kona and Sumatra coffee grounds, 16 oz of Maple Syrup, and 1 cup of Canadian Whiskey, which are not included in the kit.

I want a brew I can age a few months plus I love brewing beers from around the world. Stouts are also a personal favorite.

The recipe says ‘Condition for 2 to 6 months at 55-60F before packaging’. Does this refer to conditioning in the bottle, or is it better for this beer to condition in the secondary fermenter?
Josh Johnson on Jan 25, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello Josh, this refers to conditioning in secondary before you bottle or keg.
Which yeast is primarily recommended for this beer? Not just 'adaquate' but suggested/recommended.
Russell Graville on May 26, 2020
BEST ANSWER: There are several that are more than adequate and there is a list of recommended yeasts in the kit description. I used the Wyeast American and it turned out great.
