Chico Stout

Based on the Sierra Nevada Chico Stout, apparently, which I have never had, so that doesn't mean much to me. Guy at the brew shop said it was very popular at their latest tasting, and that its a fairly standard "American-style" stout. I don't know what that means either, but I shall write it down, in case it comes to mean something later...

8 lb. American 2-row
2.5 lb. Munich
1 lb. Black Patent
11 oz. Crystal 60

4 1/4 gallons H2O @ 152 F
Sparged to ~ 6.5 gal @168 F

1 oz. Columbus (AA 13.9% BA 5.0%) @ 60 min.
1 oz. Cascade (AA 6.4% BA 5.9%) @10 min.
2 oz. Willamette (AA4.9% BA 3.5%) @ 0 min.

Yeast: WLP001 American Ale yeast.

Its kind of a mellow lightweight stout. Rather nice.
