Are all stouts ales or

can a stout be a lager.

No Baltic Porter is a lager . The line between porter and stout is blurry so why not

I don’t think there is any BJCP lager other than the Baltic porter like brew cat mentioned. That being said, as homebrew es we aren’t necessarily constrained by convention.

I’ll go back to a conversation with Brew Cat and the two O-fest he did with ale and lager. I did the same and hard to tell the difference, hence, the malt maybe hides the subtle characteristics of the yeast? Brew Cat, you think something similar? Sneezles61

If you mimic a lager and ferment a clean ale yeast on the cool side then lager the ale you can get a good mocktoberfest or a mockbock. I know a lot of brewers do just that.

I haven’t thought of it like that. I do ferment me ales cooler, though. I am thankful for the freez-mentor! Sneezles61
