"Seduction" - Double Chocolate Strawberry Cream Stout
Sort of a spin-off from the Deception Cream Stout on here by NCBeernut. A friend of mine wanted me to try and make something like a Young's Double Chocolate Stout but add more cream and strawberries. I liked what NCBeernut had as a base for this idea, and this is what I brewed up a couple of weeks ago. Will let you know the results.

All-Grain (assuming 75% efficiency):

6.50 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM)
1.50 lb White Wheat Malt (2.4 SRM)
1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt 60L
0.75 lb Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM)
0.50 lb Roasted Barley (300.0 SRM)
1.00 lb Lactose (Boil 10 min)

0.50 oz Magnum [14.00 %] (60 min) - Weird split on Magnum I know, but
0.30 oz Magnum [3.10 %] (60 min) - just because it's what I had on hand

1.00 Whirlfloc Tablet (Boil 10 min)
1.00 tsp Yeast Nutrient (Boil 10 min)
5 oz Cocoa Nibs (Dry-hopped in secondary)
2 oz Strawberry Extract (Secondary)
2 oz Strawberry Extract (Bottling)

Mash 60 min @ 152

Ferment 3 weeks @ 68F
Secondary 2-3 weeks @ 68F

You had 3.10% AA Magnum?

Yeah i apparently did. Not sure where it came from but thats how it was labeled. Either way, its now in bottles just waiting for it to carb up. Ill report back soon.

should you soak the cocoa nibs in alcohol for a while before adding to the secondary? or can you just throw them in like they are?

I somehow get the feeling it's missing a 1 on the front. That or he got the bottom cones of the plant in the shadiest part of the plot.

thats what i was thinking, unless it was from 1987. :-)

Firebat138 09-29-2012 01:10 AM

yes... this looks great...

madkap_78 10-02-2012 05:49 AM

why 2oz of strawberry flavoring in the secondary and then 2 at bottling? why not just all 4oz at bottling? is there a difference?
