That would definitely help. FG is more of a result of unfermentable sugar in the original recipie. Lots of Crystal, Chocolate, and roasted malts in relation to you base malts would definitely give you a higher FG. Since you said it blew off the airlock, it must have been over 1.070 SG right?

I agree with Haji - also, S-04 drops out pretty quick - it's quite flocculent.

I think its the lactose. Just did my first all grain chocolate milk stout og 1.072 fg 1025 or 024ish. I use Kolsh yeast with a 1l starter on stirplate. I wouldn't muck aroumd with it too much im sure it will be fine.

Well since this thread is from a year ago I'm going to guess the issue worked itself out one way or the other.

There are a lot of threads where the OP never does a "how it turned out" post. I don't like dangling threads; there should be a definite conclusion.
The End.

I found this when i was serching for the same answer. I figured the more "thats normal" answers might help someone else searching the same thing in the future... he never said it turnd out fine (bet its already gone too!). I also tend to search on my phone and miss the dates on posts.
