An increase of dark roast malt flavours and colour can be an effective way to create a premium drinking experience for consumers.

Let's see how Hogarth Roast can be used to produce the characteristics of a Dark Extra Stout style beer:

Step 1: Identify the base beer you wish to modify

Before you can create your new beer style and take the consumer in a new sensory direction you must first establish the building blocks. In this example we have used Pale Ale and PureMalt Crafted 'Hogarth Roast' extract.

Step 2: Check out our beer style guide to confirm your target style (i.e Porter )

In this example we have added Hogarth Roast at a rate of 1.0% w/v to add enough roast malt flavour notes and colour to take a pale ale to a Dark Extra Stout. This adjustment will ensure the characteristic dark colour of a Stout is achieved, rich dark roast malt flavours are enhanced.

Step 3: Establish your addition rate

All our products have slightly different recommended addition rates depending on the base beer you're using or the target style you want to create.

In this example we have added Hogarth Roast at a rate of 1.0 % w/v to add enough colour and flavour to take a pale ale to a Dark Extra Stout. Ultimately though you're the brewer and the degree of change is entirely your choice.

Our suggestion:

Formula: 1.00 % w/v addition rate = 1 kg of Hogarth Roast per 100L of base beer

Step 4: Add Hogarth Roast to your beer

We would always suggest accurately measuring the volume of extract prior to addition to your beer. We do however appreciate that sometimes this isn't possible. We have therefore created a conversion table for you below to help those who prefer a slightly more 'practical' approach...

To create a Dark Extra Stout (@ 1.00 % w/v addition rate):

1 x 5kg pack of Hogarth Roast = 500 L [ 4.2 US barrels] of Dark Extra Stout

0.5 x 5kg pack of Hogarth Roast = 250 L [ 2.1 US barrels] of Dark Extra Stout
