Cooking with Beer: Chocolate Stout Cake

Friday, February 18, 2011


Ok, so I never got around to brewing that Saison. I have been busy with random beer adventures with the girlfriend, work, and school so there hasn't been much time. Brew day is tomorrow though.

After reading about brewing Saisons and realizing that its gonna take a while to brew, and the fact that my vanilla porter is almost gone, I am gonna do a small batch of something else while the saison conditions.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give to you... Tri-citra-hops! A Citra DIPA.
