Sounds like a lot of hops. Do the dark malts counter act the bitterness?

Also this will all work for a 5 gallon carboy right?

I'm planning on making this my second brew.

The hops are very mild and really only used to balance this beer. Many dark malts can add their own roasty bitterness if overdone, but these are not over the top. If you're concerned about it, you can use a de-husked carafa malt which won't add any malt bitterness.

As for volume, you could put this in a five-gallon carboy but I'd use a blowoff tube if you do. It would probably be better in a 6-gallon bucket.

Anyway, good luck.

Thanks! I will probably follow the reciepe exactly like it says to make things easier for me.
Do I need to use priming sugar for the bottles or will the Hazelnut extract work as the priming sugar? I was just going to add the sugar (if needed) and the hazelenut into my bottling bucket.

Yeah definitely still use priming sugar if you're bottling otherwise you'll end up with some very flat beer. I keg all my stuff and force carbonate so I failed to mention that.

Also, don't worry about getting that exact yeast strain. I think that's the only time I used it but I've heard some mixed things on it since then. Any clean American strain (WLP001, Wyeast 1056, US-05) will work, or you could even use a British strain if you wanted a little more breadiness and richness.

FYI: This beer turned out excellent. I actually went without the hazelnut just because I didn't purchase enough hazelnut extract. I also added a little extra hops because i had some leftover.
It is very good. I have had several friends try it and they thought it was delicious.
Thanks for this receipe!

Cool. Good to hear. I recently modified this a bit and made a milk stout with it that turned out a bit too rich with the lactose in the equation. But it's great with some whiskey or Grand Marnier in it to add a little more astringency and balance it out.
