Bruny Island Beer Co
Bruny Island Whey Stout
Brewery: Bruny Island
Format: 500ml Bottle
Whey Stout is inspired by the medicinal 'milk' stouts of Victorian England - enriched with lactose (refined milk sugar), they were prescribed for a wide range of ailments. In our case, getting the lactose involves carrying nearly 400 litres of cow's milk whey left over from making Raw Milk C2 to the brew kettle, 50 metres from the cheesery. Our ale yeast cannot digest the whey's lactose, meaning that it remains in the beer after fermentation and adds texture and sweetness. Whey Stout has a full-bodied, creamy mouthfeel and tastes smooth and roasty, with a slightly sweet, milk chocolate finish and just a hint of bitterness. For a great time, pair with Saint, our soft, white mould, cow's milk cheese.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Beautifully smooth, solidly complex sweet stout
One of the best stouts I have tasted - it has the deep, full, roasty malt flavours you expect from a stout, with the creamy sweetness of a milk stout brought in with subtlety by the whey. Special drop indeed!
