Have you brewed this again? Changed anything? Could you give any tasting notes, if you can remember?
I happened to be brewing something very close to his recipe this weekend. I've never made a stout so i wanted to go light on the chocolate and roasted barley and be able to scale up if I need to. If I feel it's too light on the roastiness, I will likely brew Hokie's recipe next time, but a partial mash. Hopefully northernbrewer gets their maris otter LME back in stock soon.

Yes, actually I just brewed it again a few weeks ago. Have it on nitro tap right now. The only thing I changed was reduced the roasted barley to 0.25 lb because I thought the original version was a little too roasty. Other than that, I have brewed this recipe 4 times and it comes out delicious every time! Let me know how it goes if you brew it!
I plan on it, when I finally get a chance. Have you substituted with any other yeasts? I am not familiar with your choice.
Also, have you brewed it without the lactose? The reason I ask, is I brewed a milk stout with lactose and it was good but had a slight sour note to it, which I attributed to the lactose.
I have brewed it with other yeasts. The yeast I used you can only get from northern brewer. it is their proprietary english strain. i have brewed with london ale and british ale. both came out good. my guess is any good english strain would work just find. i have also used ringwood. never brewed it without the lactose. it wouldn't be a cream stout afterall :). I have not gotten any sour notes so maybe you had old lactose or somethign?
Looks tasty! I will have to try this one......
Am I correct in assuming you did a yeast starter for this?
I actually did not. Probably would make it even better if I did! Haha. Let me know how it turns out.
i made this on saturday, followed your recipe but added a half pound of oats because i love the mouth feel you get from oats. It looked awesome in the kettle, i ended up at 1.056 so we'll see how it goes. Fermentation took off and was really churning for two days.
You gotta let me know how it comes out with tthe oats. Cheers.
