Episode 17 - Porters & Stouts

A slightly shambolic (due to over consumption of Impy Stouts) discussion of Porters and Stouts, what are they, where did they come from and how can you brew them. Plus the triumphant return of el’duderino himself Tricky!

A smooth creamy moreish stout with a velvety mouthfeel and a nice fruity finish from the London Ale yeast. This was based on the recipe from Brewing Classic Styles.
