Chicory Brown Ale
Brewing a big brown ale tonight. Target gravity 18* Plato and finish with over 8% alcohol. This is a big over the top brown ale brewed with roasted chicory root. The chicory root adds a coffee and chocolate flavor. As well as providing some bitterness from the natural oils. Chicory has long been a substitute for coffee, or today you will see pre mix blends of coffee and chicory grinds. With a complex grist bill combined with the heavy hand of chicory this is going to be a robust brown ale. Fermented with chico yeast and lightly hopped with Willamette.
