Brewing with Pastries: Stroopwafel Stout

One of the most fascinating aspects of homebrewing is the ability to experiment with unusual styles and ingredients. Our passion for pastries led us to create this recipe which looks like a classic Stout with a moderate alcohol content.
To this recipe we added 3 kilograms of stroopwafel (a typical Dutch cookie) directly into the mash pot, along with the grains. There are several ways to add the pastries to the beer, we have chosen the additions during the mash to obtain a full flavored stout.
