Let's Brew Wednesday - 1909 Truman Single Stout

Here we are at base of the Truman Stout tree. With plain old Single Stout. Or Stout.

At a bit over 1070º, it was strong enough to distinguish itself from their Porter. Don’t take the FG as gospel. That’s just my wild guess. In this period, Truman had separate fermentation records.

The grist is pretty weird for a London Stout. Also, a dead confusing one for style Nazis. No brown malt, but both black malt and roast barley. How’s that for weird? Other than that, there’s just flaked maize and sugar.

Not sure what the bulk of it was, The description is “Fowler” and “Fowler Pgs”. I’ve taken the easy way out and specified No. 3 invert. There’s also rather a lot of caramel, with no hint as to its colour.

Three types of hops: two from Worcester and one from Oregon, all from the 1908 season.
