GET TO KNOW YOUR BEER
Chubby Stout has a lot of different grains that all play a role in producing a robust beer. The base malts of 2-Row and Munich bring the fermentable sugar with a biscuit complexity and the Flaked Oats bring a structured mouthfeel along with some fermentable sugars. The Roasted Barley is unmalted and brings a deep color and a sharp grain bitterness. The Chocolate malt is similarly dark, but is malted and brings rich notes of chocolate and coffee without the same bitterness of Roasted Barley. The two Caramel malts bring the finishing sweetness with the 60L contributing a deep caramel sweetness to the finish and the 120L contributing a dark fruit sweetness of raisin and plum.
The hops rely on two additions of CTZ, one at 60-minute and one at 30-minute which account for all of the 63 calculated IBUs. The dark grain also adds bitterness, but it is not accounted for in the IBU equation. CTZ provides a resinous, piny flavor to the beer, and the Cascade aromatic addition brings a slight aroma and taste of grapefruit and citrus.
The yeast is a Chico strain from California and it produces a clean beer with a slight peach ester. While this is a big beer and only gets better in time, it is fully drinkable on day one in the BEERTAP. The grain to glass time is 12 days, and this beer really hits it’s prime after sitting in the BEERTAP for a week or two.
WHAT IS A MKRKIT
Select from one of our 15 delicious MKRKITs (and growing) for a pre-made recipe that creates a craft brewery quality beer every time or use your own ingredients! The DIY section of our app allows you to buy individual ingredients to create your very own recipe. Also feel free to customize our MKRKITs, try adding some chocolate to your Chubby Stout or whatever you can imagine! That's the beauty of BEERMKR, anything is possible.
We source all our grains from the same growers and suppliers as major craft breweries and home brewers alike. We pack the grains into pre-portion bags so you can just dump them in. We use a combination of raw hops and SteamHops, which are hops that have been pre-"boiled" to match the flavor profile of 15/30/60 min boils without actually boiling. Choose from our selection of yeast packets, or source and add your own. You can control the fermentation schedule to match your strain.
