Tallgrass Buffalo Sweat Stout Pro Series All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
This smoothness from lactose in this oatmeal cream stout balances out the copious quantities of roasted barley used in the brewing process to create a rich, complex, and delicious beer. It tastes so rich, but is surprisingly easy to drink!
What we really like about this oatmeal cream stout is the smoothness that brewing with lactose sugar brings to the palate. This smoothness balances out the copious quantities of roasted barley used in the brewing process to create a rich, complex, and delicious beer. If you have not been a stout drinker in the past, give this beer a try - it might just change your mind about how dark beers should taste. It tastes so rich, but is surprisingly easy to drink!
Since 2007, Tallgrass Brewing Co. has been crafting award-winning ales at the edge of the Flint Hills in Manhattan, Kansas. In addition to the quality of their beer, they're known for their packaging, sense of humor, and an adventurous, experimental spirit that's true to their homebrewing roots. Tallgrass chose Northern Brewer to help bring their recipes to homebrewers everywhere through our Pro Series line of beer kits - cheers!
A note on yeast: Tallgrass uses White Labs WLP007 Dry English Ale; with Tallgrassblessing, we suggest Wyeast 1098 as the default option so customers (especially mail order customers) can more easily evaluate viability before brewing.
We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeasts, but it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

I've never had the Tallgrass version so I can't compare, but man it turned out good. I put it beside a bottle of Sam Adams Cream Stout and it compared favorably. Nice and creamy, not too hoppy. I was worried because I missed the temperature low by a couple degrees, but no ill effects
There isn't one great thing about this beer, it's a sum of all the parts. The body is just right, the sweetness is perfect, the amount of roasted grain is dead on. It's now a regular in my rotation.
I LOVE Buffalo Sweat! I don't get to drink it often tho as it is cost inhibitive (unfortunately they charge what it is worth)! I made this clone just hoping that it would be close being that this was only my second all-grain. I could not be happier with the results! I did a side by side comparison with the real stuff and I could not tell a diff in taste at all! Thx Northern Brewer, and Tallgrass!
You need to give this one a try. Subtle flavors of chocolate and coffee. Don't overlook this recipe. Used Accumash and RO water due to our water quality. This one has possibilities for a session beer.
