Cinnamon Raisin Stout
« on: March 02, 2020, 08:17:08 PM »
Has anyone successfully brewed this? My local brewer made a beyond fantastic cinnamon stout. I am thinking it wouldn't  be that far of a stretch to add a raisin flavoring to it. Local guy is a nano brewer. I am a home brewer with a five gallon mash and boil. So if you have a good CR stout recipe you feel like sharing I am all ears.

Don't have a recipe, per se, but I imagine you would add the raisins in secondary along with cinnamon sticks. I would start with small amounts of raisins. Chop them up and place with just in enough vodka to cover them for sanitation (same with the sticks). Toss everything in.

I probably would lean more towards special B malt, rather than raisins. It's said to impart a subtle raisin flavor, but overuse can lean towards plum.
