This sounds simple and delicious! I've been looking for a good Chocolate Coffee Stout. Any recommendations for an extract version?

you could substitute the 2-row for roughly 6lbs of X.L. DME. I'm not sure the Munich will do anything for you as a steeping grain, so you can probably leave that out. Add maybe a pound of 2-row and the chocolate malt and carafa III for steeping grains.

I'm going to make this with a Gavalia Christmas Coffee. It's going to be my Christmas Stout!

Thinking about making this soon so that it's ready for when the weather cools down. Few questions:

1. When do you add the lactose?
2. What kind of Baker's chocolate do you use? Unsweetened? Semi-sweet?
3. I'm going the extract route so I won't be using the Munich. How much difference in taste will there be? Anything all that noticeable?

Sidenote: You go to U of I? I graduated from there 4 years ago.

Lactose at the end of the boil, or for that matter any time in the boil, but if you add it at the beginning it will decrease your hop utilization.
For the chocolate I used unsweetened Hersey's bakers chocolate. The stuff the comes in powdered form. I would throw it in at the same time as the lactose though, the more time it gets to be in contact with the wort the better.

Not sure on the extract.

And yes, Senior at U of I
