12 Gauge Stout Recipe

‘12 Gauge Stout’ Recipe Instructions

This recipe is available as an Aussie Brewmakers Recipe Kit, order no. 19835

 This recipe is an Aussie Brewmakers original. It is a big bold stout that drinks better and better with age. We call it our ’12 Gauge Stout’ as it is a double barrelled, loud and full flavoured dark beer with a smooth mouth-feel and deep roasted undertones. The recipe is another great introduction to experimenting with hops, wet malts and grains for the beginner or ‘tin kit’ brewer.
