Bean? Stout

Postby fitz » Thu Aug 07, 2003 9:51 am

Seems to me I read a recipe somewhere for a Bean Stout.
A stout made with the addition of dried beans. I know, its not like you beer or beans isn't bad enough by themselves, but you have to add them together. Anyhow, I am going over some Stout recipes, since summer is winding down, and that one intrigued me. Although, I can't remember where I saw it.
Anyone have any such animal in their recipes?

Coffee Stout?

Postby StranegBrew » Fri Aug 08, 2003 4:58 am

Bean stout? I sure hope it isn't butter beans, did they mean coffee beans perhaps? I have seen a recipe where a quart of strong coffee was optional to be added into the wort. Supposedly would make a quite addictive tasting stout. If there is some other kind of recipe with just regular beans i would be really interested to know what quality that would lend to the beer, as well as where the heck someone got that idea from.

Its not Coffee

It wasn't a coffee been recipe. Besides that, the oils in coffe is supposed to kill head retention. I have to assume(there's that word)that the recipe author figured that the starches in the beans could be converted into fermentables and would be a diff. addition to their beer. I am not sure the outcome, but I would like to know how this beer turned out. Call it a strange curiosity. I would think it would cloud the beer, but with a stout you wouldn't notice it. some old home recipes call for potatoes and raisins, not something I would readily choose to put into my beer.
