This beer is ready relatively quickly. I found mine to be quite tasty after only 2 weeks in the fermenter and 3 weeks in bottles. Longer aging times will help (it ages well), but the relatively average gravity means that extended aging is not NEEDED for the beer to be really good.

I keg conditioned my first batch 2+ months. Second batch 7+ months. Both were good. But guess which one was better.

I made this a month or so ago & followed the recipe exactly. I love it & brought it to a party of normal corona/bud drinkers & it went over really well with people there as well, even a guy who NEVER drinks had a few and liked it!

My question, and my apologies if its already been answered (I did read the whole thread awhile ago...) my girlfriends friend is asking me for a "chocolate" beer.. I was thinking of doing this recipe again but adding nibs to my fermenter & maybe upping the lactose to a pound. Any idea on how that would turn out?

Brewed the all grain version of this today with GREAT success! OG turned out 1.061 with an even 5 gallon batch. Initial tasting (from the wine thief) was AMAZING! Nice work NCBeernut! Can't wait for a month to roll on by to try this thing at the next tasting when bottling hehe...

You'll never know unless you try it!

Sounds pretty tasty to me though....

I suspect that would work VERY well. I have brewed this beer as-is, and it turned out VERY good. Adding nibs to secondary and sweetening with a little more lactose should make an EXCELLENT chocolate/dessert beer.

Let me know how it turns out, because I had the EXACT same idea!!! I want to try that variation next time.

I added 8 oz of cocoa nibs in the secondary for a week after soaking them in a cup of vanilla rum overnight. Made it deliciously chocolatey.

Was supposed to do this last sat but Doing it on Monday. I was going through my store (organising all the ingredients) and came across some oak chips. I'm not sure i want to mess with a proven recipe but if I suddenly, at the last minute, decide to add some chips to secondary, how much would be enough and how badly would I ruin the taste?

Should I do it or not?
