AHB Russian Imperial Stout Beer Kit
Russian Imperial Stout
Porter & Stout Beer Kit
Style: Russian-Style Imperial Stout
Very full bodied and quite strong. Russian Imperial Stout has less hop bitterness than British Imperial Stout. Legend has it that this style was brewed incredibly strong to survive the cold Russian winter. Russian Imperial Stout's aroma is predominantly malt and roasted malt instead of hops, is concentrates on the delicious flavors of caramel malt, roasted malt, and coffee-like roasted barley. This beer is at its best after 8-12 weeks of bottle aging, and will continue to improve for months. There may be too many weak "Imperial Stout" kits on the market, with 6 or 7 pounds of malt extract, but we don't skimp on this one! Our Russian Imperial Stout recipe kit comes with 11 pounds of malt extract and 2 pounds of specialty grains.
All our Beer Kits come in a variety of Formulations with two yeast styles and enough ingredients to make 5 Gallons. You can choose from Malt Extract with Steeping Grains, Partial Mash, and All-Grain. You also can choose between Dry and Liquid Yeast. We recommend purchasing an ice pack for liquid yeast purchases that will be shipped.
All AHB Beer Kits come with:
- Malt Extract (if applicable)
- Grains, milled
- Bottling Sugar
- Bottle Caps
- Muslin Bag (large)
- Any additional ingredients needed
