Default Chocolate Milk Stout

It seems so obvious. But I don't see anyone attempting a recipe in the database. So here's a quick stab at a recipe. Let me know how you think it will work. 5.5 gal batch.

8.0 lbs 2-row pale
1.5 lbs chocolate malt
1.0 lb crystal malt 10L
0.2 lb roasted barley
0.5 lb torrified wheat
?? oz lactose

2 oz Fuggles at 60min

Mash at 156-158 F.

I'd like to get the chocolatey flavors from the grain only, no cocoa or extract. I'm also specifying only 10L crystal since I don't want stronger caramel flavors to interfere with the roasty/chocolatey flavors from the chocolate malt and roasted barley. What do you think?

Oh, I've also been wondering what a stout would taste like with whoppers malted milk balls tossed in towards the end of the boil. Might be interesting. I'd be slightly worried at the fat in them although it seems some people have success when adding whole pieces of chocolate to boils so it may not pose a problem.

I'd pass on the whoppers, it will probably kill head retention, and who knows what else. The recipe looks good, I'd go with 0.5 lb. of lactose. What yeast are you going to use?

I was thinking about Nottingham although I wonder if WLP004 might work well with it?

WLP004 will work great...i've used it in a bunch of stouts. you wouldn't necessarily need to mash that high with it, it'll leave more residual sweetness than nottingham.

Use pale chocolate malt, and definitely not english chocolate. The higher lovibond chocolates give more of a dark chocolate flavor. The Pale Chocolate gives a real nice milk chocolate flavor...
I'd suggest using the pale chocolate and replace the torrefied wheat with .5-1 lb oats for the silky texture. I'd reduce the bittering too, to 1 1/2 ozs as well.

Interesting, I was looking for a Chocolate Milk Stout recipe just the other day. I eventually gave up and realized it was too hot for chocolate and/or milk stout right now. Let us know how this turns out because I would love to make this for my wife's birthday party in October. Milk Stout is her favorite....
