Homebrew: A stout with a great mouthfeel (Hill Farmstead Everett Clone)

Homebrew: A stout with a great mouthfeel (Hill Farmstead Everett Clone)

Any of you living in the north east would know that the ‘NE IPA’ is a distinct style which has gained quite the popularity.  But the other interesting part of these breweries who create these IPAs, is that most often they brew a great stout.  To me it is all about the mouthfeel, the balance between the malt and the hops, the correct amount of roast, and head retention.

 

I did a lot of research over the last few days, and it seems one of these great beers is Everett from Hill Farmstead.  While I have never had this particular beer, after reading about it I began to search for a clone recipe to homebrew.  I found a few discussions on other websites, as well as found out that there was a clone attempt created in BYO magazine back in 2013 for Everett.  Taking in all this information, I wanted to create a small batch clone to test it out.

 

This is what I came up with, please let me know any feedback, I will create a follow up post after I brew, keg, and taste it.  Hopefully my Everett clone is as good as the original!
