Brewing the Pomander Stout, Orange/Clove Stout

Planning on brewing a small holiday inspired small batch (one gallon) this evening. Got inspired by seeing some holiday pomanders and though that maybe I’d take a second run at a stout with orange. This is just a “stove top” recipe, meaning that I’ve brewed this volume at friend’s houses who have no actual homebrew equipment aside from something to ferment this in (Brooklyn brew kit fermenter, for example). It’s no more complicated than a stew! Here is a little more on the method.

I ended up with a little more volume than I expected, so instead of my normal 1 gallon jug I use for these batches, I used my 3 gallon better bottle. It’s promising to be pretty tasty from the way it tasted at racking! Update: December 12, 2013. Tried a not-quite-carbonated bottle and the orange-clove balance tastes pretty great to me. Very excited to try a fully carbonated bottle in the new year!
