Looking for a chocolate stout recipe
Does anybody have a recipe (All grain, partial mash or extract) for a Youngs Double chocolate stout clone?

Or just a good chocolate stout recipe.

Beer Captured has the Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout which I believe in an Imperial.

Received the latest edition of BYO last night and it has a clone for Young's Double Chocolate (as well as Fuller's London Ale & Porter!).

I am also looking for the Youngs Chocolate recipe. I have copied the recipe that you posted but would ask that you also post the procedure in brewing this beer. I am fairly new to homebrewing so any additional information would be helpful. A step by step procedure to brewing this beer would be great, but any help would be greatly appriciated.

OK after looking at several different recipes, this is what I came up with. Only substitution I am using is STYRIAN Goldings instead of EAST Kent goldings. Can you tell me if this will effect recipe that much??? Also, what do you think about the rest of it?

I want it to be closer to the real thing at Beer smith is telling me that with 26 lbs of grain it will only be 6.8%! Is that right? Also I only have 15 gallon kettles. How would you up the alcohol to be more like clone"?

** Reason for substitution, beer store didnt have it**
10 Gallon batch

21 Lbs. Pale Malt 2 row
8 oz Breiss Roasted Barley 6 row UNMALTED lovibond 300
1 LB. Special B (Dingmens)
8 oz Breis Caramel malt 90L (recipe calls for 60)
1 Lb Chocolate Malt (6 row breiss LOVI 350)
8 0z Muntons Black Malt

1 lb Flaked OATS (recipe calls for MALTED, is this a big deal)

1.50 oz Cascade at 60 min.
1 oz fuggles at 10 min
1 oz SYRIAN goldings at 10 min
1 0z Williamette at 5 min
1 oz SYRIAN golding at 5 min.

2 Packages of Safale us-05

30g GYPSUM before boil.

The easy route...

3LBS light malt extract
1LB black strap molasses
3LBS pale chocolate
2LBS Munich
1/2LB brown sugar

This will make a very thick viscous stout. Don't fear the entire pound of molasses. The flavors will boil off...

Hop tets and willamette...
