Founder's Breakfast Stout Clone
 
http://i281.photobucket.com/albums/k...mrockshake.jpg

16 lbs. American 2-row
1 lbs American Chocolate Malt
.75 lbs Roasted Barley
9 oz American Black Patent
7 oz Crystal Malt 120L
22 oz Oats Flaked

.5 oz Nugget (Whole, 13.00 %AA) boiled 60 min.
.5 oz Mt. Hood (Pellets, 5.00 %AA) boiled 30 min.
.5 oz Mt. Hood (Pellets, 5.00 %AA) boiled 2 min.

2 oz Ground Sumatran coffee at flameout
2 oz Ground Kona coffee cold brewed, added at bottling
2.5 oz Dark bittersweet baker's chocolate at 15 mins.
1.5 oz Unsweetened chocolate baking nibs at 15 mins.

2 pkg. DCL Yeast Safale S-04 Top Quality Ale Yeast

Mashed at 155F for 60 mins. 1.33 qt/lb.

Again, BYO's Replicator numbers didn't match up to Founder's website, so I adjusted. Specifically, the IBUs are waaaay off.

I made an extract version of that recipe (also tweaked to match Founder's website, and with Nugget/Willamette). It turned out FANTASTIC, probably my best to date. I'm excited to brew it again now that I've switched to all grain.

Back then, Founder's listed their IBU's much lower. They appear to have made a correction since then (60 IBU's), so this recipe would actually come in quite a bit lower in IBU's than their Breakfast Stout.

What is the volume of the kona at bottling? Is it 2 oz in 1 cup - 12 cups? Also, I was reading in another thread that it is a possibility that a chocolate layer builds up at the bottom of the fermentor, did you experience that?

I had a layer of chocolate on the bottom and some at the top before I racked over to the secondary. I racked mine onto 2.5 oz of moka java beans and .75 oz of american oak chips. It smells fan-frikin-tastic. I can't wait to taste this one!

I easily have an inch and a half of chocolate on the bottom of my Better Bottle right now (9 days into 2 week 2ndary) Will hope that the s-04 compacts it slightly more in the next few days and will suspend my siphon right over the top of it with duct tape.

The recipe says 2 weeks primary 4 weeks secondary. Do you go 2 or 4 weeks in secondary?

DubbelDach 10-20-2009 03:28 PM

Just consulted my calendar, and it looks like I'm splitting the difference. 2 week primary, 3 week 2ndary.

Need to bottle on 11/14 so it's ready to drink at the start of December.

Good lord, this post made me salivate. I must make this beer this weekend.

So here's the deal. I have 11.5 pounds of two row along with .5 pound of Crystal 10 already crushed in a grain sack together.

I need to add the rest of the things in this grain bill but how should I adjust for the .5 pound of Crystal 10 that is already crushed with the two row??

Thanks!
