Default Chocolate Cherry Stout advice

I'm trying to make a chocolate cherry stout and this is my second attempt at a partial mash and I was hoping I could get some advice on the recipe.


Batch size: 5.5 gal
Boil volume: 3.5 gal
OG: 1.051
FG: 1.013
Bitterness (IBU): 35.2
Color (SRM): 38.8
ABV: 5.0%

Grain/Sugars:

4.00 lb Two-row (US), 40.0%
1.00 lb Amber DME, 10.0%
1.00 lb Amber DME, 10.0%, boil for 10 min
1.00 lb Milk Sugar, 10.0%, boil for 10 min
0.75 lb Chocolate Malt (US), 7.5%
0.75 lb Flaked Oats, 7.5%
0.75 lb Roasted Barley, 7.5%
0.50 lb Barley, Flaked, 5.0%
0.25 lb CaraPils, 2.5%

Hops:

1.50 oz Kent Golding (AA 5.1%, Pellet) 60 min, 22.3 IBU
0.40 oz Cascade (AA 6.6%, Pellet) 30 min, 6.0 IBU
0.40 oz Cluster (AA 7.7%, Pellet) 30 min, 7.0 IBU

Yeast:
Irish Ale yeast, 1.0 unit(s), Yeast


My plan is to add 1/2# unsweetened cocoa powder at knockout and add cherries and vanilla beans to secondary. Possibly more chocolate in secondary depending on taste.

BIAB Single infusion mash at 153* for 60 min. Recipe is assuming a 65% efficiency.

Any advice would be appreciated

Make sure the cocoa powder you use has no fat. I've used both powder and cocoa nibs in the past. The nibs in secondary will give you a better chocolate aroma/taste than the powder will. I have not ever used the nibs in the boil, I think it would extract too much undesirable bitterness.

Check out the Chocolate Cherry Popper Sweet Stout in my recipes (to the left and below my pic).
