Let's Brew Wednesday - 1914 Courage Double Stout

Time for another WW I recipe, just for a bit of variation.

Porter wasn’t the only beer parti-gyled with Courage Imperial Stout. Their standard Stout was, too.

No need for a long spiel on this one as, obviously, the recipe is exactly the same as for the Imperial. Just a little less of everything.

Double Stout was almost certainly packaged both as a draught and bottled beer. The draught version would have been on sale in all Courage’s tied pubs.

That's a lot of black malt. Are you sure?
