Default KBS Clone Recipe in Zymurgy!

I haver tried this one with not so great results. I was flipping through the new Zymurgy mag and came across the recipe given by Jeremy Kosmicki. While not the exact recipe, it should be close.


5 US Gallons

13.25 lbs pale malt
1.5 lbs flaked oats
.75 lb roasted barley
.75 lb Belgian choc. malt
.50 lb Belgian debittered black malt
.5 lb 120L crystal malt

Hops

1.0 oz Nugget 13% aa (60 mins)
1.25 oz Willamette 5% aa (25 mins)
1.75 oz Willamette 5% aa (10 mins)

2.5 oz Belgian bittersweet chocolate (15 mins)
1.5 oz unsweetened cocoa nibs (15 mins)
2.0 oz ground Sumatran coffee (flameout)
2.0 oz cold-brewed Kona coffee (secondary)

American or California Ale yeast

Boil Time 90 mins
IBU. 73
SRM 60
Specific gravity 1.092
Assumed Efficiency 75%

Infusion Mash at 155F for 60 mins. Add Hops, chocolate, and coffee as specified. Ferment for 2 weeks at 65F. Soak .25 oz French Oak chips in one cup Kentucky Bourbon for 2 days. Soak ground kona coffee in 1 cup boiled, cooled water and leave overnight, covered in refrigeratro. Strain out grounds and add cold coffee and bourbon, with wood chips to secondary. Rack fermented stout into this mixture and condition in secondary at 55-60F for 2-6 mos.




I will be trying this recipe very very soon. This is one of my absolute favorites and I just cannot get it here in FL. Thank God I have friends in low places, er......I mean North places!!!

Yeah there's also one in there for Racer 5 which I noticed that except for a couple of minor changes is very similar to my own IPA recipe.

I knew there was a reason I liked that beer.

I made something almost identical and it turned out great! I didn't use the nibs and just added more bittersweet chocolate in the boil. i loved using the cold brewed coffee also.

I have seen this recipe or very close to it in other places. I plan to take a stab at it in a few weeks but using ingredients I have on-hand (carafa special II instead of debittered black and a blend of British chocolate and pale chocolate, Magnum instead of Nugget). I plan to age it a whiskey barrel.

First I'm going to make a low gravity 5 gal batch and use the cake for this batch (Pacman yeast).

I've never had the real thing, not even the reg breakfast stout nor CBS.

I am ordering the grains for this and will be brewing it this weekend, hopefully! If it makes it to me by Friday. I wonder if anyone has actually come close to the real thing. This sounds like it will be better than my previous attempts.

I just got around to brewing this up on Sunday. It is the thickest, muddiest looking wort I have ever brewed up, EVER!!! It smells soooo good, and I cannot wait to drink this!

Here is a vid with about 40 mins left in the boil.

I was planning to make this one this weekend and pitch on the cake from a porter that I made a week or so ago.

There's going to be a thick layer of chocolate pudding on top of that yeast cake. And with a beer this big you prob don't want to wash/save the yeast anyway.

I'm brewing mine this coming weekend using the washed cake from a 1.048 OG ale. I think I'm gonna bail on the 'Kentucky' part of it and just make a regular Breakfast Stout.
