Default White Chocolate. . . Stout?

I am interested in brewing a white chocolate stout. I searched, but 'white' and 'chocolate' were too common to narrow down to a single thread.

Has anyone attempted this? Success/Failure? Worth the brew?





Hoping to brew this coming Sunday (no disrespect to you fooseball fans).

I just want to comment that that sounds freaking awesome if doable.

Totally doable. Use pale chocolate malt, special roast, pale caramel malts, german munich and pale malt.

I bet you could find a low fat white chocolate cocoa powder, and add it with some lactose at the end of the boil

deleted, no real value added to the thread, I guess.

Acctually, it is the cocoa butter component of the cacao. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_chocolate

...and cocoa butter isn't something you really want much of (if any) in your beer...

Cheers!

Here's a go at a base recipe using an imperial sweet stout recipe i have as a baseline:

10# base malt
2# german munich
1# caramel 10L
1# flaked barley
1/2# flaked oats
1/2# cara-pils
1/4# special roast 50L
1/4# pale chocolate

1oz goldings @ 60 min
2oz fuggles @ 60 min

4-6 oz Lactose @ 10 min
4-8 oz White Chocolate Syrup (non/low fat) @ 10 min

Mash @ 154-156, 60 Minutes

I couldnt find much for sale in the non/low fat white chocolate department. Syrup looks to be the closest thing avail.

Per Beersmith, end specs:

~ 1.080 OG (not including lactose)
~ 40 IBUs
~ 13 SRM

I'd venture to guess that it'd be pretty tasty!
