Default Coffee Stout, but no chocolate malt. Grocery Store Substitute?

I am making a coffee stout:

8 lbs of pale malt
.5 lb of honey malt
.5 lb of c60
.25 lbs of roasted barley
? lbs of coffee beans (cold extraction)
.5 lbs of lactose

Ive got an oz of mt hood and an oz of wiliamette. Don't know how i will hop it yet.

2 packs of safale s05 (starter)

I need to know what i could use to get a chocolate flavor in my coffee stout. Im not going to order online again just for that. No lhbs anymore...

I was thinking about using something from the grocery store. Bakers Chocolate?

I'd try special dark cocoa powder

Bakers chocolate in the boil. You can melt it first so it will blend better and not scorch in the pot. Bakers chocolate will also add bitterness.

I bought one pack of the semi sweet bakers chocolate and will add it to the boil. I do not have any lactose(milk sugar) and could not find any at the grocery though

Do you guys think lactose would make a good addition to a coffee stout anyways?

Just mash high like 156, for more mouth feel and unfermentables that should counter not having the milk suger, another trick would be to reduce your first runnings by half and then add back to the main boil to add a little more sweetness

Make your own, Cook some pale malt appx 1/2 hr at 350 degrees in the oven in a screen made into a tray, turning and misting with water about every 5 minutes. Page 12 here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/happ...9/index12.html

good advice, but I made an irish red instead b/c I had some c 40 and roasted barley on hand. I couldn't find any lactose anywhere locally. I will wait and order some chocolate/coffee type recipe online later

Depending on the coffee that you use in your cold extraction it can actually add a lot of chocolate notes. The last time I did a coffee stout I didn't add any chocolate malt, but the coffee gave it a huge chocolate flavor.
