Czar's Pride RIS Tap Handle

Czar's Pride RIS Tap Handle

It’s time to brew a winter ale again.  I’ve been wanting to brew a Russian Imperial Stout for some time now and tomorrow is the day.  Stephen and I brewed one of these two years ago on New Years day, and I lost the keg in the back of the kegerator for about 9 months.  It was a fabulous ale when I finally put it on tap.  Originally, I had planned on brewing alone, but Stephen will be joining me for the brew tomorrow.  Here’s the recipe for 5 gallons (we’ll be doubling it:)…
