I've brewed this recipe, but couldn't find the cocoa that Cat used. I tried Here's and it was too bitter. I used 8oz of cacao nibs the second time and it was fantastic. 8oz is a lot, but the taste was amazing. Love this brew. Thanks Cat

Interesting. I was just reading about the effect of hops utilization in a denser wort. In fact, I've just found and play with the equation that evaluate the IBU considering boiling time and density of the boil. It is in the John Palmer's book. Thanks a lot for your enlightening comments. My guess is that in this recipe, the quantity of hops is for a smaller boil, may be 2.5 or even 3 gal, and the IBU is evaluated with this consideration in mind.

Thanks a lot, now everything is clearer for me. This recipe will be very interesting to do. Thanks a lot for posting it. One more thing: I lived in south florida. For the primary fermentation, I can use a big tub with ice bottle to keep the temperature around 68-70. After the first week of active fermentation, do you think I could keep the primary fermenter at room temperature for the additional 2 weeks? In my home-office, the A/C keep the temp at 72F. Should be fine, no?

Yeah I do the same thing in eastern NC just water bath with frozen bottles of water for like the first 10 days of fermentation at 65 degrees then I take it out and let it stay at room room temp which for me is around 78 ( i am a poor 24 year old so 78 is as much as i can spend on ac from july to september) until I hit 3 week mark then I bottle. I have made good beer this way. Other people might have other opinions though but just try it once and if you like it do the same way again if you dont change the method.

I usually just wrap a wet towel around my carboy and that helps keep the temp around 70-72 with no problem.

Tub of water and ice bottles works wonders. I kept a beer in the 60's with it was triple digits with no ac.

Brewed this recipe today! First time doing a partial mash, think it went pretty well. Ended up with an OG of 1.073 ish. I eyeballed the last pound of LME, so I may have added a little more. I probably didn't have the most consistent mash temp, so if it ends up with less fermentables and a slightly higher FG, I am fine.

Used 8oz of cocoa powder. Couldn't find any non-fat in time, though. Oh well!

Also, I used the Northern Brewer's NeoBritania Wyeast instead. Should be some good stuff, thanks!

I brewed this today. It was all-grain and I also used 8 oz cocoa. Damn that's chocolatey. It's for a good friends wedding. He requested a chocolate stout. I hope it's not too much. I came in at 1.080. Haven't figured it yet, but that's really good eff. ,specially being rushed. I had a birthday party to go to. Pulled it off in just over 3.5 hours. I'm siked. Thanks for the base recipe. Anybody adding cream at bottling/kegging? What kind,how much and where to get it?? Thanks.

Cream stouts don't actually have cream in them. You use lactose and you can get it at your LHBS.

I knew that but I saw recipe somewhere on the recipe database that listed Cream.
