Angry Bovine Milk Stout is one of our most beloved beer recipes, so we figured with Valentine’s Day just around the corner – why not bring some romance to that pouty old cow? Since Valentine’s is all about love and decadent chocolate goodies, we thought tart cherries to pair with the cacao nibs could make our velvety milk stout even more seductive. No smooth jazz required, Smitten Bovine Milk Stout is sure to set the mood come February 14th.

PROFILE:

Angry Bovine Milk Stout is one of our most beloved beer recipes, so we figured with Valentine’s Day just around the corner – why not bring some romance to that pouty old cow? Since Valentine’s (or pretty much any other day you want!) is all about love and decadent chocolate goodies, we thought tart cherries to pair with the cacao nibs could make our velvety milk stout even more seductive. No smooth jazz required, Smitten Bovine Milk Stout is sure to set the mood come February 14th. With its bold flavors of milk chocolate and roasted malts, this milk stout is very similar to our "Angry Bovine" recipe, but with the fruity twist of red tart cherries. These cherries add a subtle tartness that compliments the sweetness of the lactose sugar giving you a creamy full-bodied stout that would go great with cake or pie, or even as a dessert on its own. (WARNING: Not recommended for those who are lactose intolerant.)

STEP 1: SANITIZING

Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions to download by visiting our help desk.)

NOTE: BE SURE TO SANITIZE EVERYTHING THAT WILL COME INTO CONTACT WITH YOUR BEER.

STEP 2: BREWING

Brewing beer is the process of combining a starch source (in this case, a malt brewing extract) with yeast. Once combined, the yeast eats the sugars in the malt, producing alcohol and carbon dioxide (CO2). This process is called fermentation.

  1. Remove the yeast packet from under the lid of the can of Brewing Extract and set aside (you won’t be using it for this recipe), then place the unopened can and both LME softpacks in hot tap water.
  2. Using the measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot, then bring water to a boil. Place cocoa nibs in hop sack, add to the water, and boil for 5 minutes, then remove from heat.
  3. Open the Brewing Extract and the LME, pour the contents into the hot mixture. Add milk sugar. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.
  4. Fill keg with cold tap water to the #1 mark on the back.
  5. Pour the wort (hop sack with cocoa nibs included) into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg to the #2 mark by adding more cold water. Stir vigorously with the spoon or whisk.
  6. Sprinkle the Safale S-04 yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir.
  7. Put your keg in a location with a consistent temperature between 59° and 68° F (15°-20° C) and out of direct sunlight. After approximately 24 hours, you will be able to see the fermentation process happening by shining a flashlight into the keg. You'll see the yeast in action in the wort. The liquid will be opaque and milky, you will see bubbles rising in the liquid, and there will be bubbles on the surface.
  8. After 1 week of fermentation, puree the can of fruit with a sanitized blender and quickly open the lid and add the fruit to the keg. Do not leave the keg lid open for too long. Close the lid and continue fermentation.
  9. You’ll ferment for 21 days total. Your fermentation will usually reach its peak in 2 to 5 days (this is also known as “high krausen”). You may see a layer of foam on top of the wort, and sediment will accumulate at the bottom of the fermenter. This is totally normal. Complete fermentation will take approximately 2 weeks. After high krausen the foam and activity will subside and your batch will appear to be dormant. Your beer is still fermenting. The yeast is still at work slowly finishing the fermentation process.

Step 3: BOTTLING AND CARBONATING

Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions to download by visiting our help desk.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Drmarkmd from Smooth drinking. Easy to brew. Would put it in secondary fermentation when adding the cherries the next time. Tastes good. Good beer

Rated 5 out of 5 by SpiderDan from The wife LOVED it! I bought this recipe back in Nov 2018, brewed it in Jan 2019 & popped the first bottle in late March 2019 (I like to let my brews to sit for a bit). I bought & used just one can of the Oregon Red Tart Cherries from Wegmans (? I think), and added them (pureed) one week after the wort first went into the LBK. This was DELICIOUS! I bought the incredients to make it again and am going to try TWO cans. The wife said she thinks it might taste even better with some more Cherry, so - we'll see. FWIW: Had to buy a whole CASE (8 cans) from Amazon, as I couldn't find single cans. The only issue I had was that my bottles - I used the plastic ones from my kit - gushed like crazy..... I used 4 Domino sugar dots / bottle, but obviously that was too much. Will knock the amount of priming sugar down this time. I'm off work for a couple weeks (due to the whole COVID19 hysteria), so will brew this one again this upcoming week. Cheers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Homebrewdude from Wow Brewed this in May I believe. In the meantime, I moved so i was really distracted and busy with. Ormal movimg amd renovating things. Come the end of December, cracked one open and wow, this by far is the best tasting beer brewed (and I've brewed plenty). Patience is definitely a virtue with this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Armandg4 from Really good. This was my 3rd brew with Mr. Beer. I got the kit as a Christmas gift from my girlfriend. I personally think I over carbonated about half of my batch, but the other half came out great. Really smooth and smells terrific!
