Recipe does not conform to the American Stout style.
A buddy of mine, Michael Kraemer, and I brewed this on a Saturday night while we drank a few Iowa IPA’s and some Revenge Amber Ale. The first was a two-gallon batch I placed in my Mr. Beer fermenter for the first week, then moved to a regular 2-gallon fermenter for week 2 and 3.
I made this again in time fro Christmas and so far it has been the favorite of friends and family. My dad said he would put ice cream in it, it’s so good.
Tyrannicide is a cool name! It means “Death of a tyrant.” There were several ships called Tyrannicide throughout history, but I chose a special one to name this brew after. Tyrannicide was a Massachusetts Colonial Navy Sloop (later converted to a Brigand) that served from 1776-1779. This small but capable vessel lead several expeditions and captured or destroyed over 19 British Vessels. Tyrannicide’s victims ranged from ships carrying cargo and troops to large armed Navy and Privateer ships.
The first time I did this recipe, it was a 2-gallon batch that I mashed on my kitchen stovetop and sparged by putting all the wet gain into 2 cloth sacks, then pouring boiling water over the bags in a strainer.
