What recipe are you guys referring to?

FED those recipes you posted, while they may be good, are nothing like Velvet Merlin at all. FW VM is 5.5% ABV and has no chocolate at all.

I was referring to the Chocolate version FED posted, as I wanted something with chocolate and more of an imperial than just the base Merlin.

Yeah, realized later that it's a Velvet Merkin clone. Silly me, I thought merkin was a typo on the FW website. Come to find out there are two different beers out there. The recipe is the merkin clone. Just don't google merkin, seriously... There is no unseeing what I saw !

I ended up with a stuck sparge on batch #2 which was the small beer (merLin-ish), that's the one that got the cocoa and a portion barreled with the majority kegged. The high octane (merKin) got the oak cubes - no cocoa. Awesome beers both.

I added cocoa to the small beer because... wait for it... I really like how it tastes.

Have been playing around trying to get a recipe based on the info in this thread, Firestone site and some other threads. It seems quite difficult to get to 65 SRM, especially in another thread in reported remarks from Matt was that they used Briess roast barley at 300SRM and at 12%. Anybody have any other ideas/comments.

Mash Ingredients

4 lbs Pale Malt, Maris Otter (3.0 SRM) 29.6 %
3 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) 22.2 %
2 lbs Oats, Flaked (1.0 SRM) 14.8 %
1 lbs 12.0 oz Roasted Barley (300.0 SRM) 13.0 %
1 lbs Carafa III (525.0 SRM) 7.4 %
1 lbs Crystal Extra Dark - 120L (Crisp) (120.0 SRM) 7.4 %
12.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) 5.6 %

Mash 156.0 F 90 min

Boil Ingredients

1.50 oz Fuggles [4.50 %] - Boil 60.0 min 22.4 IBUs
1.00 oz Fuggles [4.50 %] - Boil 10.0 min 5.4 IBUs

Est Original Gravity: 1.063 SG
Est Final Gravity: 1.022 SG
Estimated Alcohol by Vol: 5.4 %
Bitterness: 27.8 IBUs
Est Color: 61.2 SRM

I'm willing to bet the colour they give on their website is actually EBC instead of SRM. 65 EBC = 33 SRM, which makes much more sense.
