  • VELVET THUNDER Light - Imperial Stout Recipe

    Velvet Thunder Light

    Imperial Stout – 5.5 Gal - OG 1.065 – FG 1.012 – ABV 6.9% - IBU 49.2 – SRM 42

    This is the LIGHT version of Velvet Thunder. Still formidable! But also approachable. It is thick, opaque with a large dark brown frothy head. It had extremely rich notes of chocolate, coffee, and lovely malt character. Its balanced out by our newly arrived 2020 hops, and it features one of our favourite yeasts – Cali Ale from Escarpment Labs.
