Default BYO's Youngs Dbl. Choc. Stout

Has anyone tried the BYO version of Young's Double Chocolate Stout (recipe posted below) or another recipe you may have?... and if so, how close to the original is it? Personally, I'm good with some variation, however, I have a buddy that I want to introduce to homebrewing and he loves this stuff. So, if it is off by quite a bit he will definitely notice and probably stick to buying commercial. Any help would be appreciated...

The issue with any clone is that you probably won't be serving it on nitro, which is a big part of the character of the beer.

The recipe looks fine, but I would hold off on the lactose and chocolate extract and add them at bottling to taste. You may have enough sweetness/cocoa flavor from the rest of the recipe.

Thanks for the reply... when you say hold off on the lactose and choc. and bottle to taste... are you saying to not place them in the secondary? Would a better idea be to mix the solution with the priming sugar in the bottle bucket before bottling?

Exactly (although I wouldn't boil the extract). Taste the beer when you are ready to bottle, if it has enough chocolate flavor don't add the extract (if it needs more add some, taste and repeat until the flavor is where you want it). Same goes for the lactose, only add it if it doesn't taste sweet enough.

I ended up doing a modified extract version per the recipe below...

1.0 lbs. Briess Golden Light DME
4.0 lbs. Northern Brewer Organic Light LME (Late Addition)
0.5 lbs. Dark Corn Syrup (15 min.)
0.5 lbs. 2-Row Pale Ale Malt
0.8 lbs. Briess Caramel Crystal Malt (60L)
0.75 lbs. Simpsons Chocolate Malt
0.25 lbs. Roasted Barley Unmalted (300)
12.0 oz. Lactose (15 min.)
6.0 oz. Cocoa Powder (15 min.)
.33 oz. Liquid Chocolate Extract (Secondary)
½ tsp. Irish Moss (15 min)
½ tsp. Yeast Nutrients (15 min)
1oz. Kent Golding Hops (60 min)
1 oz. Fuggle Hops (15 min)
Wyeast 1318 London Ale III
3.8 oz. Corn Sugar (Priming)

I bottled it approx. 3 weeks ago. I cracked one open a couple nights ago for a sample... and this bad boy is stout, and I mean super stout. I can tell that it is going to be a good beer in time, but it's going to take quite a while. I would say if I had to do it over again... I would lessen the Cocoa Powder by about half or more and probably lessen the Lactose a bit too, then test at add accordingly at secondary racking. It has a thick mouth feel that will hopefully ease up in time. Good Luck, and let me know how yours turns out!
