Brewing to Style: Imperial Stout - Video Course
NBU takes an in-depth look at Imperial Stouts to help you understand the classic style and perfect the art of brewing this decadent beer at home. Course instructor Chip Walton begins with a quick look at the style’s history and guidelines. Get a professional brewer’s perspective from Ben Smith, head brewer at Surly Brewing Company. Then join us for two complete homebrew demonstrations (extract and all-grain) with discussions of the many unique processes involved when brewing and flavoring a beer of such mammoth proportions at home.
The Brewing to Style series looks at different beer styles – everything from classic and historical styles, to the most popular new styles – what makes them unique, how they are brewed, and what variations you might find. We approach styles from a homebrewer’s perspective, but also present conversations with professional brewers to more fully understand style guidelines and brewing techniques.
