Ditto. Served this for some friends this weekend... My keg is just about empty! The Nottingham does a good job. I also brewed a 2nd batch yesterday and used the Notty that I harvested off of the first batch ;-)

So has anyone tried brewing an AG batch of this? I scoured over the posts awfully quick and might have missed it? Just bought the grain today, gonna' brew it up this weekend.

I'll be kegging the AG version this coming weekend. It's been in the primary since September 26. Subbed WLP011, and was actually a bit high on OG due to better efficiency than I was expecting...

The mash & boil smelled fantastic, the pre-boil gravity sample tasted really good (albeit REALLY sweet, the OG sample tasted really good.

I've been jonesin' something fierce to finish this one up... I'm sure it'll be great!

Amendment to my previous post: I took a gravity reading just now to make sure she's done doing her thing when I keg it this weekend. (Read: I was curious about the gravity, but really I wanted to taste the sample...)

SG: 1.062 (rounded up to 7# of 2-row as noted and got better efficiency than I expected)
FG: 1.020

Taste?? Well, taking into consideration that I'm a newb and it's uncarbed @ 68deg, all I can say is "damn!!" very VERY good. Nice subtle roasty aroma when you get your nose down into the glass. Very smooth up front w/ a nice carmel-chocolate then finishes with the roast coffee flavor & associated mild bitterness. I'm getting just a touch of alcohol bite/warmth at the finish too. I think with a bit more age it will subside, but it's actually kinda nice where it is.

NCBeernut - THANK YOU for this recipe!!! I'll definitely be brewing this one again!!!

Hmmm..my LHBS just stocked up on a ton of NZ hops. I was going to substitute the Magnums for NZ Green Bullets (13.8%aa). I'd just really like to support the Kiwi crop...although I've never worked with them before. The LHBS guy told me they're a good dual-purpose hop, so they should work okay for the bittering addition.

Just picked up the ingredients to brew the extract version this weekend. I ended up getting Wyeast 1028.

Really looking forward to this stout!

I ordered the AG ingredients last night, AHB had the Denny's in stock so I went ahead and went with that. Will be trying this as a stovetop BIAB

Oh, forgot to ask. How does this compare to Left Hand Milk Stout? Only Milk stout I've ever drank...and I love it!
