Default Chocolate beer

Anybody recommend a nice extract kit for a chocolate brew?

Could I do a milk stout extract and rack on top of chocolate nibs or is there more to it then that?

Thanks

Northern Brewer sells a good chocolate stout extract kit.

This is my house stout. I like it, as does Herself, & it's quite well received by friends.
Adjusted/modified for extract.

12oz de-bittered Black
12oz Caramel 80
8oz Pale Chocolate malt

Steep at 154 for 30 minutes.

7.25 lbs Gold LME (1/4 at 60, 3/4 at 15) roughly
1.5oz E K Goldings at 60
1lb lactose at 15

S-04 rehydrated

OG should be roughly 1.058

Ferment at 64 & rack to secondary at 3 weeks, on to 4 oz of Cacao nibs & 1 split vanilla bean ( vodka soaked), for 2 more weeks.
FG should be about 1.015-ish.

Carb at 2-2.2 vols.

If you take it to your LHBS they can duplicate it easily..
If you want to get it mail-order, look at this as an example.

Seriously. Yes, your local shop can do it from a printout. It's a very simple, easy sweet stout.

Sounds good! Sounds like you started with an AG recipe - mind sharing?

When you're ready to move up to partial mash (you probably are and don't know it already ) I have a pretty good chocolate recipe in my recipe dropdown. It's good for a kitchen partial mash brew.

And +1 on what tony says. When all else fails, print out the recipe, take it in and say "I wanna make this" and any good LHBS will do the rest.

Asking a dumb question but how much water do I use initially to make my wort?

You can do a partial boil (2.5-3.5 gallons) and then top off to 5.25 in the fermenter. Or, if you have a big enough pot & enough heat, you can do a full boil.
How much water for that scenario will be determined by your boil-off rate.
