This kit is a recipe that has been worked on for over 12 months after falling in love with the wonderful beer Yellow Belly from Buxton and Omnipollo.
Its a rich malty chocolate taste, combined with lactose to add sweetness, and the all important ingredient that adds the peanut butter flavour that we spent 6 months sourcing in a home brew format without the need for nuts. Thats right, this beer is peanut free just like the Yellow Belly Stout.
Even without the Peanut flavour addition this is a great tasting stout recipe that will keep you coming back for more.
The kit includes malt, hops, fresh yeast and peanut butter flavour addition to make a 19ltr batch of beer.
All you need to buy is 200g of molasses to follow our recipe. You could try switching this out for dark treacle to add an interesting twist to the recipe.
This beer got an honourable mention in the awards at the 2019 LAB home brew competition, scoring 41 and 42 out of 50.
