3 oz of malted grain should yield one strong 12 oz cup of wort. The best wort style (by informal member voting consisting of slurping noises and head nods) is a darker style such as that used for stouts and porters. Therefore we have developed the following recipe:
East of Elon Tasty Wort Beverage
2 2/3 oz Rahr 6-Row Malt (crushed)
1 oz Fawcett Pale Chocolate Malt (crushed)
1/3 oz Weyermann Chocolate Wheat Malt (crushed)
2 cups of hot water @ 175-180 F
Combine grains and water in a teapot, stir well and allow to steep for 5-10 minutes depending on desired strength. Strain/pour fresh wort into a mug and enjoy!
This recipe yields a strong and chocolaty wort that is perfect for both breakfast or a relaxing evening beverage. And since wort has no caffeine, it won't keep you up all night.
We're continuing our testing so stay tuned for future posts, recipes and developments.
