I'm looking to make a Chili Pepper Milk Stout. Do you think this would work for a base recipe? I currently do not have a base :(

Brandon O 12-24-2008 05:21 PM

I have had milk stouts before, I would say a milk stout is a bit sweeter than this particular sweet stout.

Course, you can always add more lactose after fermentation if you want it sweeter. I would use it as a base.

Hey, I just bottled up a sweet stout (it was actually a kit from NB, but next time I want to go a bit bigger, so will have to put a little investigation into a recipe). I am a bit worried that it is going to be too sweet, based on a surprisingly pleasant sweetness out of the secondary (where usually I'm grimacing at the uncarbonated warm beer, trying to imagine it chilled with carbonation). My OG was 1.050 and the FG was 1.024. This seems to be within your suggested range, but it also seems to be a small amount of attenuation from 1.050. So if it tastes sweet and creamy out of the secondary, is it going to be cloyingly sweet?

Without knowing the recipe it's hard to say. Lactose is not overly sweet compared to other sugars

Brandon O 12-27-2008 11:11 PM

took a picture of the sweet blackness in the kettle. I'll have to post it on this thread. I added a pound of oats to the recipe, we'll see how it turns out.

The pacman yeast is really consistent so far, no blow off tube needed.

What Yeast are you using in this? I see AA...
