Glad the forum is back up - Salty Liquorice Milk Stout

Post #1 made 5 months ago
I've not been brewing much over the last three years, I appreciate this place is very much a ghost town again, but I dusted off the BIAB sheet and got to brewing!

I'm sure salty liquorice milk stouts aren't up everyones streets, however a friend of mine is very much into them.

We knocked up this batch using a previous milk stout recipe we used for making a roasted cocao & coconut (bounty bar!) stout recipe.

I've just kegged it up and am force carbonating it.

Probably should add the recipe.

I made the samiak extract by disolving a pack of samiak sweets in mash water before adding back to the boil in the last 10 minutes.

Wow, that's some recipe. I have strayed somewhat from Reinheitsgebot but not as far as you.
True salty licorice is an acquired taste. I had some in Amsterdam and a Dutch relative can get the good stuff, but most of what is available in U.S. stores is crap by comparison. I think the Salty Liquorice Milk Stout might be interesting to try, but not a regular brew for me. Credit goes to you for being so bold and thanks for sharing.
