All Grain 100% Brett Fermented Foreign Extra Stout Recipe

Profile: Rich full-bodied stout fermented with a unique strain of Brettanomyces, which creates clean tropical fruit aromas and flavors. Flavors of dark sweet malts with some light earthy tartness from the Brett. Smooth malty finish with moderate hop bitterness.



14 lbs Pale 2-row

8 oz. Crystal 100

6 oz. Chocolate Malt

6 oz. Flaked Barley

6 oz. Roasted Barley

Hops (pellets):

1/2 oz. Columbus 15%a, 60 minutes

1 oz. Galaxy 14%, 20 minutes

YeastWhite Labs WLP644 Brettanomyces Bruxellensis Trois


Mash all grains for 60 minutes at 150 degrees.

Sparge at 170 degrees.

One hour boil with hop regimen above.

Ferment warm at 70-75F for 12 weeks to let the slow working Brett yeast perform.


    Recipe is aging right now with the Brett yeast. Can’t wait to tap it in a couple months!



    Love the Foreign style stouts, in between the Irish and Imperial styles. Full bodied with smooth roasty flavors. The Brettt is a nice touch to add complexity. Throwing in some oak chips during aging would also be sweet.



    Looks very good. Like the added tropical notes from the Galaxy hops and Brett yeast. Should develop some light tartness with enough aging.
