General Information
Method: All Grain

Base style is Foreign Extra Stout (16D). Made from 5 gallons of 1.060 wort from Mockery Brewing. Will be entered into their Making a Mockery competition.

Steeped all but Maris Otter in wort for 30 minutes at 150 degrees. Boiled and added hops and adjuncts as prescribed. Turned out to be a dark brown and not the deep brown/black that I was going for.

For this beer, add 1/2 cup of course-ground espresso roast (or another dark roast such as French roast) to 18 ounces of water in a sanitized container. Steep for at least 12 hours in the refrigerator. Strain into another sanitized vessel and add to secondary along with the vanilla.
