How The Oyster Stout is Made:
By following a thorough process that takes up to 30 days, Harbour Brewing Co. has been successful in creating a top-quality pint with a signature creamy head.
The process first begins with the key ingredients of heavily roasted barley malt, chocolate malt and a touch of wheat, for the creamy head. With these ingredients, 20kg of the malts are processed in the mash tun - a kettle used to combine grain with water to convert starch into sugar – and end up creating the wort, otherwise known as an unfermented beer.
Once the wort has been created, this is then boiled with a small quantity of Perle hops to add a gentle bitterness. Then the unusual, but clever ingredient of oyster shells is added to the process. With this unique addition, Harbour Brewing Co. can infuse a mild saltiness and enhance the overall flavourings.
The oyster shells are then removed with a whirlpool that filters out each shell. Once filtered, the liquid is transferred to Fermentation vessels for two - three weeks, where it ferments, and the complementing flavours combine ready to be served to you in our iconic seafood restaurants.
