Default What's the best chcolate stout recipe/kit?

I've decided that my next beer will be a chocolate stout in the style of Young's Double Chocolate Stout.

Anybody have any great recipes or kit recommendations?
It must be extract since that's all I'm setup for at the moment.

Thanks.

I don't have one in front of me, but the first place I would look before reinventing the wheel would be 'Brewing Classic Styles' or "Designing Great Beers". Zainasheff and Daniels consistently produce style recipes that amaze. And if you study them they give you a nice base template to tweak if you are so inclined.

Here are the Chocolate Stout recipes that show up in the search of the recipe forum. I didnt look deep, but I did see some Young's mentioned.

Thanks for the book recommendations. I'll check those out.
You can never have too many brewing/recipe books.

Ya I would check out "Brewing Classic Styles". Very good book for recipes.

Austin Homebrew Supply has a kit that is similar to youngs. Look under the Stout area of the AHS kits, you should see a double chocolate stout link. I've never had it but it seems to get good reviews on the AHS site.

Thanks.
I saw that one last night while checking out their website.
I might end up getting their kit but I was hoping to put together a 2.5 gallon batch to test it out and if it comes out really good I'd get a 5 gallon batch going.

I suspect you can contact Forest or anyone over there and ask. I bet they can put together a kit that'd make 2.5 gallons, or come close. You probably just have to ask. In my experience, most homebrew stores that make their own kits don't really 'package' them in the same sense that trubrew and others do. If anything just ask them for the recipe and convert it yourself. I think they will give you the details if you ask, they just don't put them out on the site for anyone to copy.

That's a great idea!
I'll email AHS and see what they say.
