Default Chocolate milk stout

Hello everyone, I am going to attempt my first all grain brew with this stout. Can anyone give me any advice about bottling? I have only legged beer since I started brewing.

I have priming sugar left from an extract kit, but northern brewer has the sugar cube things and you only need to throw one in each bottle for carbonation, does anyone have experience with that?

I've used the Coopers drops, pretty much the same thing. They're handy and easy, but make sure you follow the dosing instructions carefully. If you put 2 in a bottle and you only need 1, you will get bottle bombs.

Personally I prefer using bulk priming sugar because you can dial in carbonation volumes and I think you get more consistency. If you have to rack into a bottling bucket anyway, you might as well just boil up priming sugar and dump that in first. I only use the Coopers drops for small batches.

+1. Batch prime. Run it through a priming calc and shoot for about 2.4 volumes of CO2.

Prepare yourself to give a chocolate milk stout at least 3 months of bottle conditioning at 70-75*F. It's hard to wait such a long time, but that's what it takes. Your patience will be rewarded.
