I brewed this one out yesterday it smelled great and it's very dark and thick. I pitched yeast and it started actively fermenting within 12 hours can't wait to try this one it sounds like a good Christmas beer

Nice! I had planned on doing 10 gal of this today… but seeing as it’s past 5am, and I’ve been up for over 25 hrs, it might have to wait till Saturday

I’m going to add the cocoa powder to the mash tun as a previous poster mentioned… and hopefully eliminate most of the sludge that carriers over from bk to carboy to keg.

I’m looking for an abv of around 7%; not sure if I should age it, as in extending fermentation (after reaching fg) for an extra week or two or racking it to a secondary…?? Was also thinking about adding some vanilla beans soaked in 2oz of vodka for the last week.

This is a good recipe… I highly recommend serving on nitrogen!

Cool, post what you did and I will too! Cheers!

Brewed this today with some slight variations. I did 4 gallons of water for the initial mash (target of 154) and 3.5 gallons for the sparge bringing my boil volume to somewhere around 6.5-6.75 gallons.

Added the lactose (1 lb) with about 10 minutes left in the boil and then the cocoa powder (8 oz) with about 7 minutes left in the boil. Hop additions were as mentioned in the OP.

I ended up with an OG of 1.065 which I wasn't expecting. Guess my mash tun was too efficient or I used too much water. Anyway, smells amazing. Will report back when it's ready to drink.

Thanks for the recipe.

You can add more lactose when you keg, just boil it in some water first… then let it cool to room temp.

Sure, if you think you’ll like the taste… are you kegging it? If bottling then I might wonder if it might hold up over time (i.e. go bad or rancid???)

Sorry if this has been asked before........ How would this turn out without the lactose? Im looking for an award winning chocolate stout recipe to use for my homebrew club's club brew next month. Catch is it cant have lactose, one of our member is lactose intolerant. Thanks!
