Default Anyone ever make a chocolate milk stout??

I just thought of this and never tried a chocolate milk stout. Has anyone tried a beer like this or even made one?? If so can someone point me in the right direction??

I'm definitely planning this. I'll be taking a well respected milk stout recipe and adding a couple oz of cocoa powder to the last 5 min of the boil, and then doing ~1 week secondary on cocoa nibs (not sure about the quantity yet, I haven't done enough research to get a general idea).

yep.. I just got one finished conditioning... I wound up with higher efficiency in my mash than expected so I have an 8% ABV Chocolate Milk Stout...

The advice I would give is to be moderate on the amount of lactose used. I used a whole pound and it came out a little on the sweet side.. perfect for a dessert beer though. I used 8 oz coca powder in the last 10 mins of boil and then 2 oz chocolate extract at bottling time.

Made one almost two years ago, and the few bottles I have left keep getting better with age. I used 1 pound of lactose and 8 oz of cocoa powder. Ending up at 7% ABV, it was a little bitter at first with the cocoa powder, but a lot of that mellows with age. Have one with some german chocolate cake, it will bring out the chocolate flavor in the beer, and make the cake seem more sweet

I made a chocolate cherry milk stout last year. 1 lb lactose was about right, it was close to 6% alc. I used 4 oz chocolate extract and 4 oz cherry extract at bottling. The chocolate came through well, the cherry was barely detectable. Also only used chocolate malt for dark grains, didn't want the extra bitterness roasted barley and black malt tend to have over chocolate malt.

Yes, mine is in the fermentor right now. I am REALLY glad I only brew this stuff 1 time a year and that is in Dec!. I made a 12 gallon batch with 1 lbs of lactose, 16 oz of hersey's cocoa powder and 8 oz of the hersey's special dark. I added all these @ 15 min in the boil.

This stuff is a HUGE mess to clean up. My carboys are 1/5 or more full of "sediment" and the samples I have taken have very small amounts of chocolate flavor. I plan on adding 2 OZ of home made vanilla extract and 1 bottle of brewers best chocolate extract.

Since this will not complete the brew, I will be cold brewing a coffee blend in water joe to make: 7% Baltic caramel chocolate coffee breakfast porter in both regular and decaf.

I wish you the best of luck! Let us know how it turns out!

Just made one and it is great if you want my recipe I can post it when I get home from work. The one ingredient I did use that made it oh so good was chocolate wheat malt. Made such a difference.

Both Northern Brewer and Austin Homebrew Supply have kits for that type of beer.
