Through the Looking Glass - Dark Ale


Recommended Posts

This one is inspired by the White Rabbit Dark Ale.


Steep in 10 litres @ 70c for 30 mins.

\u2022 Caramunich 2 ( 500g )

\u2022 Carafa 3 ( 250g )


Bring to boil and add hops.

\u2022 East Kent Goldings ( 60g ) @ 60 mins.

\u2022 Cascade ( 35g ) @ 10 mins.


Light Dry Malt Extract ( 2.3kg )

Dextrose ( 250g )


Top up to 23 litres.


Nottingham yeast.


Ferment @ 18c



I also bottled 6 x 740ml bottles with a double shot of coffee in the bottle.

I ran starsan through my coffee machine beforehand and sanitised as best I could.


This has turned out a very tasty beer.


If I had to change anything I'd probably just drop the dex.

It doesn't need the extra abv at all, so it doesn't really add value.

I've only tried one of the coffee ones.

It'd been in the bottle a month and I must say it's delicious.


I wanted a strong coffee flavour along the lines of Burleigh Brewings Black Giraffe.


I went for a mild coffee roast so as not to overdo the bitterness.

I used the mildest in this range Woolworths Macro
