I tried some from my miller mini keg and it's great.

Default Awesome


I made this as an All Grain last year and converted it to Extract a few months ago and both of them came out EXCELLENT!!!.

It will become my all around brew in the fridge.

LOVE THE STUFF.

I gave my clone a try, and it turned out fantastic. I might use a pinch less roasted barley next time, but boy did it turn out great.

Another thumbs up. I left it about 4 months in secondary and it tastes good. I like this much better than the mint choc stout recipe posted here. You can taste the chocolate, but there is less of it.

I've brewed this recipe twice now. I did the first attempt as listed. It turned out as a great tasting stout.

On my second attempt I adjusted the list to satisfy my personal palette better.

I toned down the Roasted Barley to 11oz and raised the chocolate to 13oz. In addition I raised the Lactose Sugar to 1.25lbs.

If you really want to clone Left Handed Milk Stout. Another important step is to decrease your normal bottle priming method. My first attempt I used 4.5oz sugar at 68 degrees. My second attempt I use 3.5oz at 68.

Left Handed Milk stout has very little head and almost no lacing whatsoever.

In all I like my second attempt better. With that added Lactose creamy taste. But it's all up to your personal taste. In all I would say that this recipe is great and I would recommend it to anyone who appreciates any Guinness style beer. It really does taste similar to Left Handed Milk Stout.

(Just make sure you aren't lactose intolerant)

Also I forgot to mention I added 3oz of Vanilla Extract to the secondary on my second attemp. It really adds to the flavor.

I only do primary's and left mine for a little over a week. Kegged and let carb for about a week. It was fine and gets better every day. I'm just about out and I'm stressing out about it.

I had a sample of this fully carbed last night, and oh my god. I didn't want to stop drinking them, even though they were hitting me pretty fast. I see myself getting into trouble with this one.

Anyone else get an extra-powerful hangover from this beer? Maybe it's just because I only partially mashed my oats, but after like three of these I feel like crap the next morning.

I'm about half way through drinking my batch, and it's pretty fantastic. I'd give this beer a solid 4.5 stars.
