Default Шоколада Имперский толстотный Светлана (

Thought I'd throw this one out for the class. I'm pulling out all the stops for this one and cleaning out leftover ingredients. I want a big, Winter brew and this will probably be my last brew until the weather cools again in late summer/early fall. I'll be pouring the wort over a previous yeast cake. Lemme know what ya think!

This is a HUGE amount of this type of grain for this size recipe! You'll probably be making something that tastes a lot like Cajun Coffee.. Good luck tho.. I respect your enthusiasm!

That's kinda what I'm going for - at least I want it to be heavy, roasty and coffee-like. I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out!

I'm about to do this again in the next 3-4 weeks as an all grain. I'm down to my last couple of bottles. None of them carbonated at all. Maybe I'll need to add more yeast at bottling time - maybe the yeast in the primary was spent. However, it still came out very, very tasty! I liked to drink it just as it was. With some carbonation, it would be even better!

It had a nice roasted flavor, but not at all overpowering. The chocolate taste was too subtle to me. I'd like to up that somehow. It seemed pretty balanced, but I think I might up the IBUs just a bit, too.

I'm thinking I'll leave the recipe as is except to substitute ~14 lbs of 2-row for the extracts, drop the brown sugar and up the Turbinado sugar to a 1-1/2 lbs. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

It's mine. I borrowed a lot from various places - mostly the Internet, a little from Daniel's Designing Great Beers. The idea for the amount of chocolate extract came from the Young's Chocolate clone in this month's BYO.

I actually bought White Star extract online and received it late last week, just for this brew. When I took the OG reading, it was thick as 10W30!
