How to Brew Oyster Stout

A video description, hot off the presses. The video below was shot as Alex Ganum and Gerritt Ill brewed the 2011 batch of Upright's Oyster Stout:

The process, in case it's not totally obvious, is this. In addition to 72 large oysters added near the end of the boil, Alex and Gerritt dumped in about twelve gallons of oyster juice (or brine or...). It smelled of the fishy sea. But, as Alex describes, the final result is pretty subtle.

  1. I'm excited to try this year's batch! I've still not warmed to the likes of sour beers, so I don't drink a lot of Upright, but I tried their Oyster Stout at the tasting room last year, and was really pleased. Oysters make everything better!
