Ordered my ingredients for this beer today. I haven't bottled in forever but this one will get bottled so that I can try one periodically. I read this entire thread last night! Some things I took away were to definitely change the 2 row base for your equipment. Beersmith is having me use 13lbs rather than 16lbs. I also had to take down my darks a little to get the color in the high end of the range. For hops, it has me adding an additional ounce of nugget to get IBU up to 60. Going with Wyeast 1056. Great thread! Great beer!

This is basically what I did. You will like. Good choices.

I brewed this today, with just a couple alterations to the original recipe. I reduced the base malt to 14lbs, upped the bittering hops to a full ounce, and subbed in unsweetened bakers chocolate for the cocoa nibs. This was my first time using my new Corona mill, my first time using brewing software (Brew Pal app), and my first time using a starter I made from yeast I saved from my previous batch's cake (1056).
I got an OG of 1.076, which I think should end up at around 7.2% depending on attenuation. Really looking forward to tasting this one.

We brewed this recipe a little more than 2 months ago now. We let it primary for 4 weeks and then transferred it to a 10-gallon bourbon barrel. We did a barrel tasting with friends last night and everyone said it was the best beverage they had ever tasted, beer or otherwise. One of the ladies told us we had our panty dropper. We will probably give it another 2 months in the barrel. We are planning a Robust Porter to go into that barrel next and do a same day swap once the Port is done fermenting.

After making a first batch of this recipe (OG 1.086 -> FG 1.035) on 9/8/12 I was extremely happy with the result. Thus decided to make another batch on 12/16/12 (OG 1.096). A friend of mine had recently been experimenting with soaking cocoa nibs in high end bourbon and donated the "used" nibs to me. As I am contemplating adding these to the fermenter does anybody have advise on how many ounces to add to get a nice but not overpowering bourbon flavor?

Just bottled this past weekend. 1.093 > 1.022. Now time to forget about it and plan another batch to drink next year. Most likely give it KBS treatment.

You will be hardpressed to get any bourbon flavor from the nibs anyways, regardless of how long they soaked.

Majority of the flavor was the cocoa going into the bourbon, the liquid has all the flavor, the nibs will have minimal after soaking.

Just wanted to thank the recipe guys for this...it's spot on and I brew it every few months. It's my house stout.

I recently tried a bit of this brew at about 2.5 months into the process and I really liked it!

In a couple of weeks, I'm going to start another batch of it but this time I'd like to get a bit more roasted flavor out of it. I'm thinking about increasing the amount of roasted barley, but I am nervous that I will over-do it. Is there a threshold that I shouldn't go over? How much roasted barley is too much roasted barley?

Conversely, I would be happy to make something that tastes more like Speedway Stout. There is a Speedway Stout clone recipe floating around the net, but I think that is based on an old version of that beer. I think the current version of the Speedway Stout tastes much different. If anyone can point me towards another high gravity roasty stout recipe, I'd be happy to give it a try.

Also, do you guys have any thoughts on using liberty and nugget hops with this recipe?

roasted barley can get rather intense. i would start by upping it to a full pound, maybe 1.25 maximum, and see how that works. would be a shame to go overboard and ruin a whole batch.

i have no info on the speedway stout. i'm assuming you've googled it...

liberty and nugget hops: i'm of the opinion that the hops don't really matter in this beer. there are so many other flavors and aromas going on and so few hops, that the hops aren't really noticeable. so go for it.
