@sweetcell & @pabloj13, thanks again.

The better bottle is well covered with a towel to keep the light out, so that the yeast can do it's thing in the dark & hops don't get affected (not bothering to do that with two carboys of Ed Wort's Apfelwein/Drunken Emu cider sitting next to it). Tomorrow or day after I'll give it another swirl to get the yeast roused after temperature has climbed a little. The hydro sample smelled/tasted good, a bit less body than I hope to end up at the end with.

I am using a standard bi-metal dial thermometer which I'd initially calibrated with ice water a while ago, will do another calibration to make sure it's still set correctly.

Heiko - trying hard to be patient on this one :-)

Give it some time. I felt that mine had less body than I had hoped for, but to be honest... Compared to the real deal FBS, mines relatively close.. Not the milkshake I had hoped for, but hey..

This.

Mine tastes remarkably close to the real Breakfast Stout. GREAT recipe. I do wish it had more body, though. I'm wondering if the chocolate that I used had too much oil in it. I thought I got the kind with hardly any in it, but there is a very small oily film at the top. about half a mm on the top. Hmm...

Then again, ours is only 3 and a half weeks old.

So I’m going to finally brew this recipe this weekend. Any Words of advice? Besides don’t screw up.

you could add some maltodextrine at bottling (or into secondary, or at any point really) to add back some body. don't over-do it, but it could get you part of the way back to where you want to be.

^Oxygenate your wort well...pitch enough yeast....be very clean! That's my advice.

Quote:
When I had transferred the wort into the carboy I shook it up quite a bit to aerate hoping that it would have been enough.
I agree, shaking is not enough, especially for high gravity beers. You can only get 8ppm MAX of Oxygen into the beer by shaking, and yeast likes 8-12ppm; so you're at the bottom of the desired range if you are VERY good at shaking wort.

As advised by the other guys here, you should consider giving it time; I'd say wait until 28 days minimum at this point and hope the yeast keeps working. Your best bet is to go to get a smack pack of WLP001 or make a starter of yeast and pitch it into the fermenter at high activity. This active yeast will try to eat some more sugars.

Good luck and buy an Oxygen Stone! I recommend Williams Brewing Stainless Rod / Stone setup. $50 WELL SPENT.

I thought about it, but decided to leave it be. It's around 3 months old now I think... Not sure I want to mess with it for a while and see how it turns out. It's off line right now aging in the house at 70, versus the 37 in the keezer. Plus I needed some room in there and this wasn't getting drank yet.
