Malt Shoppe Suds is coming your way! It is packaged up and ready to rock.
The brewery is smelling great! Vanilla beans and sea salt are heading into Malt Shoppe Suds to give it that salted caramel malt flavor. We are super excited to get this beer packaged and on its way!
The beer is almost done fermenting, we just need to drop a couple points in order to hit the desired % ABV. We are giving the yeast a little boost to eat up the remaining sugars in the beer and get us up to 7.5%. If all goes well, the additions of Vanilla and Cacao should happen late this week, and the beer will be packaged around the 19th. then its off to the lab for analysis!
The final brew of this triple batch is happened on Friday . This brew is where the “Milk” in milk stout happens. In the boil we add lactose, which is a non fermentable sugar from milk. So it sticks around after the yeast eats the rest of the malt sugars and provides a residual sweetness and creamy mouth feel. In addition to using caramel malts, we are adding some brown sugar to this batch, that will be added at the end of the boil as well. Yet to come are the additions of vanilla beans, cacao nibs, and sea salt which will happen post fermentation. All in all this beer is going to be quite complex, and we look forward to it being ready to drink!
Next steps are to wait for Government approval of the label, then package it up!
