It is the same as their chocolate stout recipe but wit a oz bottle of raspberry flavor that you add at bottling. I brewed this myself pitched the yeast on 4/30 and just xfered it to secondary today. my og was 1.059 and when i took my reading today it was at 1.033. I called Austin Homebrew and they said FG should end up around 1.015. The sample tasted great can't wait till it is ready. They no longer have the kit on their site. You could use their Double chocolate Stout $30.99 and add the Raspberry Flavor $2.99.

It was actually the special last month, I got 2 of the all grain kits for about 16 each. I did one with out the rasbery and one with, they should come out fine once I get an open keg to transfer them to and carb em up.

Again Austin Home Brew did a great job. And when you talk about AHBS products spell out the name Austin Home Brew as Forrest the owner searches for the full name. If you ever have problems he is on here every couple of days to answer questions. For this very reason I typed out the name of the store so he would find this thread.

By the way Forrest I know you are reading this, I would still like to offer you the opportunity to carry my alien love child, don't worry when it bursts through you chest it won't hurt that much.

Ah crap. I saw this one on sale last month and I *almost* bought it. It sounds like a DELICIOUS recipe. I hope Forrest brings it back in the future because I will definitely buy it.

I bought it like two weeks ago on sale. Brewed up 10 gal of it this past Saturday AG and had an OG of 1.064. Think I'll let it sit for a month then rack it onto real berries not the extract that came with the kit.

Dang. I looked on-line last week and was planning to buy it for a gift for my brother. His birthday is next month. I hope it turns out well.

Just finished up my keg of this but the good news is a friend of mine bought a kit to have me brew for him about a month ago. Might bottle it this weekend (sitting in secondary for a week but has been brewed for a total of 3). The great thing about it is he just got one case of 22 oz. bottles and told me to bottle those and keep the rest! This beer even tastes great when it's green! I think mine actually turned 6 weeks old last week or the week before and it's already gone! I couldn't keep from drinking it early. Too bad they don't offer it anymore but i should still be able to order the individual ingredients to make it again!

If my raspberries recover from last year's drought well enough, maybe I'll boil some down to syrup and try them out in my chocolate stout this year.

Boy I hope the patches are okay. Years of work would be wiped out if they do not recover!

Just kegged this and I hit an OG of 1.055 and brewed it on 4/26/08 and kegged and checked FG today (5/21/08) and it was a little high of 1.026. Almost a month in primary.

Tasted great.

Should I have any issues with the FG of 1.026, it should be around 1.015? I know I should have checked graivty before I kegged it, but to late now!!!!
