Brewed this last night and everything went well. OG came in right at 1.066.

Strange thing though, I ended up with over 6 gallons of beer doing BIAB. Not sure where the extra wort came from but the OG was spot on. I used my normal mash volume (no sparge) but didn't get the same absorption. I would have thought the flaked oats/barley would absorb more liquid. I tried to boil off a much as I could but finally got tired and cut the burner with about 6.5 gallons of wort. I now have a verrry full better bottle. Blow off tube in place!

I mashed this a little high at 154 degrees, which I hope doesn't make it too sweet.

So I really would like to brew this for my next batch. As I only have 3 batches under my belt and have not gone AG yet or never done a BIAB, does the extract/steeping recipe on pg 5 look okay? What changes would be made to that recipe (if any)? Or does anyone have a good extract recipe for this beer?

Planning on brewing this up on Friday and was thinking of throwing in a couple vanilla beans & cacao nibs in after about a week of fermentation. Any thoughts? I've never had the original.

Personally, I wouldn't do it. LHMS is already quite sweet, I would think the vanilla would make it even sweeter tasting. I find vanilla is better in a more coffee oriented dry stout. Maybe split the batch and test it.

Sounds good. Thank you for the advice! I was thinking it would cross over to something like Aphrodisiaque from Dieu Du Ciel (another beer I have not tried but sounds REALLY good). I haven't used either nibs or beans in my brews as of yet and I guess I'll wait for now..

just got done brewing this and ended up with 1.068 and just a bit under 5 gal in the bucket. This is my first time actually coming close to hitting the numbers... I am psyched!!!

I brewed this up about a month ago, and it was also the first time I hit my numbers dead on.

A quick note: There was a whitish film that formed on the surface of the wort during fermentation. Initially I thought the worst: infection, wasted batch. But after searching around the forum I read that it's common to have this sort of funky film form when using adjuncts like lactose.

Just in case you guys see it and weren't aware.

It smells great, can't wait to give it a try. Thanks for posting!

I brewed this about 2 weeks ago and it has been the slowest fermentation I've ever had. Hit 1.068OG it's only down to 1.040. I took a reading last friday and another one today to verify that it's still dropping, but man it's taking it's time. I pitched the wort over an existing cake of US05 and figured it would take off like crazy.

Anyone else have this happen?

Got the boil on right now and this stuff smells incredible! Very chocolate-y and roasty. Going to be hard waiting for this one to be ready.
