Default Dragon's Milk recipe?

Has anyone seen a recipe for this?

Is described as, "A barrel-aged, strong-ale with a soft and rich caramel-malt character intermingled with deep vanilla tones dancing in an oak bath."

My god, is that stuff FANTASTIC!

My guess is that you'll need a barrel for aging it.

I'm wondering if I could get that flavor from some oak chips? I see that Radical Brewing has a recipe. I'm going to have to take a closer look. I own the book, but didn't remember seeing it in there.

I've got to say, it QUICKLY became one of my favorite beers. With your love for all things vanilla, you'd probably be a big fan too.

Actually... rdwj and I have exchanged several PMs about the recipe, bouncing ideas off each other here and there.

Shimms and I are hoping to finalize our recipe this weekend.

She picked up the oak cubes today, and we'll begin soaking them this weekend.

And I got REALLY lucky ... was sent out on an assignment today, stopped at a liquor store in the area and found five bottles of Dragon's Milk on the shelf. I bought all but one.

Good luck... I've looked hither and yon, and even read on another message board of a guy contacting New Holland and not getting any help at all.

Let us know if you find anything

after some searching try Radical Brewing page 129 (English October Beer)

I cant get to a bookstore today to photo the page cuz I'm at work but supposedly a recipe for Dragons Milk. As for the barrel aging . . . try sterilzing your oak chips in some burbon then letting them sit in the secondary for 9-10 months.

also found this, nice article

If anyone ha a copy of Radicle brewing could ya post the recipie on page 129? If not I'll gead out tomarrow and try to find me a copy . . . need something to read for jury duty
