Bold, dry, rich and delicious, here's our easy homebrew recipe for a classic: the Dry Irish Stout. A noticeable roasted character with a rather high hop bitterness.
WHAT IS IT?
The Irish stout evolved from the popular London porters of the late 1800s. A noticeable roasted character with a rather high hop bitterness is often accompanied by creamy mouthfeel especially when served on draught. A moderate alcohol content leads to an overall drinkability for generally bold and dry style.
