Dark Rock Shamrock Oatmeal Stout – Part Grain Kit

Dark Rock Shamrock Oatmeal Stout - Part GrainDark Rock Shamrock Oatmeal Stout is a bold, smooth dark brown stout, with a rich body and a foamy tan head. Flaked oats provide a silky mouthfeel and, when blended with Roasted Barley and Chocolate Malts, they give a rich complex flavour. Shamrock Stout provides a slightly lighter creamier and easier drinking beer than the American Stouts and Northdown and Goldings hops provide a more subtle bitterness and aroma. This kit produces 40 pints at 4.4% ABV.

A sachet of Pure Brew is included with this kit in order to achieve a commercial quality. Pure Brew is a professional beer enhancer. It feeds the yeast with essential nutrients, which supercharge the fermentation and support yeast development (even in limited oxygen conditions). Pure Brew also treats brewing water to eliminate problems caused by Chlorine and Chloramine (which can create a medicinal or as it is sometimes referred to, a “homebrew” taste).

The condition of brewing water is critical to achieving optimum results but this important area is often overlooked. By using Pure Brew, you can effectively and easily condition brewing water, and maximise effective fermentation. We strongly recommend using Pure Brew with all of your beers to improve their quality.

You could consider investing in a metal hop spider to effectively manage hop additions into the boiling process. The hop spider would sit inside your boiler and allow you to drop hops into the boil in a controlled way. Hop Spiders allow hops to boil with more free flow space around them. They are easily cleaned and can be re-used over and over again. They also prevent hop sediment (known as trub) from clogging up pumping systems when using all in one brewing equipment.

This has come out so well. Utterly impressed, as are anyone else who (I let) try it. I used a dark brown sugar for priming which gave it a love sweet undertone.
