I brewed this recipe today, and I'm stoked to see how it turns out. I hit my temps on the mark, but threw in a full ounce of the Chinook by accident. Also, my software screwed up a bit and I ended up with near 6 gallons in the primary. Hit the OG with 1.050, so I'm not complaining.

Thanks Jim!

I'm glad you like it. I just brewed my dry stout yesterday, but as the weather cools I'll do this one again

I was hoping to bottle up this batch this past weekend, but was unable to. We did a complete gut-job on our kitchen and I don't have a sink. I did, however, take my first sample. FG weighs in at 1.016. I think that puts me at around 4.4% ABV. I drank the sample, and thought it was delicious.

This being my first stout, if I get the batch into bottles this coming weekend, would they be good to go by the last weekend in October? I understand that the carbing process typically takes between 2-4 weeks, but the flavors of a stout, will they be mellowed and balanced in that time frame?

What are you guys carbonating this one to? 2.0 or so?

Recipe looks tasty.

Just wanted to let you know how good this is! Best beer I've brewed to date. I made a few minor changes, but everyone who tries it gives rave reviews.

Also, I think this would be awesome if put on some chocolate nibs in the secondary. May try that at some point.

Thanks for the Reicpe!

how did you ferment this? how long in primary and at what temps? how long in secondary?

could I use target hops instead of chinook?

thanks
