Easy Irish Stout

18.09.2015 Слава Ирландская кухня

Irish stout is easy to brew and perfect for any weather.

Irish stout is the perfect dark beer for warm weather. It’s full-flavored, low in alcohol, and has about the same number of calories as that watery “lite beer” your brother-in-law brings to your backyard barbecue. And speaking of grilled meat, Irish stout is a great pairing.

If you’ve spent any time on the Emerald Isle, you know that the black stuff is the year-round staff of life, equally at home in summer as in winter. Served at a cool—not cold—45°F (7°C) with low carbonation (nitro is de rigueur for most commercial examples), the style is both flavorful and immensely drinkable. It was a session beer before the term became trendy.

Irish stout is also incredibly easy to brew. With just three grains, one hops, and a nicely attenuative dry yeast, you can turn this around in a couple of weeks if you keg your beer. My interpretation is just a touch stronger, and I dare say more flavorful, than the world’s most famous stout, and it doesn’t spend several weeks on a boat.

A very wise man named Albert Einstein is often quoted as having said, “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” Brew this Irish stout, and I promise you’ll feel a lot smarter.
