I usually use S-04, US-05 or Nottingham. While all being a little different, they will all work. I want to try it with Irish Ale yeast, but have not had the opportunity yet

I am newbie in brewing.. do you really need chocolate inside your brew?
or it is an optional ingredient.

That is British Pale Chocolate Malt, although you can add forms of cocoa to a Chocolate Stout

I brewed almost this exact recipe for the first time last weekend. I used Willamette instead of Chinook, and I used more Choco malt than Roasted Barley. I was thinking about adding Maltodextrin, but I'll have to let it be if it's good as is. I can't wait to give it a taste when I rack to secondary tomorrow.

You won't need it. It is great as is. Let me know what you think of it.
I'll be kegging my latest batch up Friday

Oh yeah. It was just right going into the secondary on MLK day, so I didn't add the Maltodextrin. Had a good OG, good FG, tasted sweet and stouty, and I was happy.

I will bottle this coming weekend, after the Jupiter Craft Brewer's Fest. I have a Canadian and 2 work buddies waiting to taste this one. I hope the time passes fast, cause I'm out of HB.

Anybody got a picture of theirs to help me get through the wait?

If I only had a camera.
I kegged mine yesterday and did the "shake, rattle and roll method" and it's good to go today

A good palate cleanse from all the IPA's I've been having

OMG, you suck. I gotta get a keg setup.

I'll probably hit up my local brewpub till it's done.
