Last Gasp

Before I started my new job, I brewed a beer. Called it the Free Man Stout as a way to celebrate my time unemployed. It has a chocolate liquor nose but with a nice level of carbonation, the beer feels pretty light. I did well with this one.

  1. Looks good.
    I may have to borrow that recipe, as my nitro tap is screaming for attention.

    oh.. been lurking for a bit on your blog. I find it an enjoyable read.

    1. Thanks! I’m glad you’re enjoying the blog.

      FYI, I used Wyeast 1272-an American Ale yeast-for this beer. Let me know if you try it-I’d be interested to hear if it works for you.
