IMHO this beer needs to bottle condition about ~8 weeks. It is good at ~4 weeks but the additional time really makes this beer very delicious. The coffee/chocolate/milk notes certainly are more developed with additional time.

I do agree that this recipe produced a very good Milk Stout! This is probably one of the best beers I have brewed and I am not a huge Stout fan.

I'll agree with that. The few bottles that last that long are excellent.

This one is next in my rotation. Can't wait to get to it after all the Belgians and saisons are gone!

Excellent recipe! Kegged this a week ago, after 28 days in the primary, and the early samples are outstanding.
Will definitely brew again, next time with a split secondary, half on cocoa nibs, half on vanilla beans. And will probably bottle the next batch for some longer term conditioning.

So the second time I brewed this it was for a party, and about half the keg was left over. The party pump probably oxidized the crap out of it, and it sat at room temperature for 3 days before being bottled (using proper beer gun). Turns out, even the oxidation and fluctuating temperatures can't ruin this beer! Still delicious! A local brewer in Sellwood, OR tried it, and he is brewing a half barrel to go on tap in a couple of weeks.

Noob to all grain here. Can anyone give me a heads up on how to treat RO water for this? Would just the one tsp of calcium chloride be sufficient or should I add anything else?

This article should help you understand the basics of water chemistry.

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f128/brewing-water-chemistry-primer-198460/

I also use the EZ water calculator. Just plug your numbers in and change the values. It takes about a 1/2 hour to figure out

That EZ water calc is nice. How would I plug in the flaked oats and barley? Would I list that as other? Would those really have much of an influence on pH at all?
