I brewed this today with some adjustments. I ended up with 5.5 gallons by mistake. (no sight glass on kettle) I have my carboy marked. My OG was only 1.053. I know the extra 1/2 gallon will bring it down. I also had the grains milled about two weeks ago which i am assuming will bring it down? This is my second BIAB and I am trying to figure out what my brew house efficiency is. Any idea what the 1/2 gallon and the 2 week old milled grains would do to my OG?

Here is my recipe
7 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (3.0 SRM) Grain 56.57 %
1 lbs Roasted Barley (300.0 SRM) Grain 8.08 %
1 lbs Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 6.06 %
1 lbs Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM) Grain 6.06 %
1 lbs Munich Malt (9.0 SRM) Grain 6.06 %
1 lbs Barley, Flaked (1.7 SRM) Grain 5.05 %
1 lbs Oats, Flaked (1.0 SRM) Grain 4.04 %
0.5 oz Magnum [12.10 %] (60 min) Hops 18.4 IBU
1.00 oz Goldings, East Kent [5.00 %] (10 min) Hops 4.3 IBU
1 lbs Milk Sugar (Lactose) (0.0 SRM) Sugar 8.08 %

Note: all the specialty grain was bumped up to 1# and the Magnum was bumped from 0.35oz to 0.5oz.

Additional Items added

1tsp yeast nutrient 8 mins
8oz Coca 5 mins
0.75 oz mint 3 mins

Steeping: ( 5 gallons of water )
135 - 30 mins
155 - 60 mins

After Steeping I added 2.5 gallons and brought to a boil.

Thanks,

Josh

So after drinking this further, and sharing it with a few friends that love stouts, we've agreed:

It's a bit too 'dry'. Now yes, I know this isn't a dry beer (FG was 1.023 for me), but there is some soft astringency from the 1lb of Roasted Barley. I also don't get as much chocolate flavor that I get from LHMS; I get more coffee and esspresso. This makes the beer taste drier than it actually is. The astringency from the RB, and the heavy roasted notes were the big difference from this clone and LHMS. So next time i brew this I'm going to:

-Cut Roasted Barley to 10oz, possibly 8oz
-Up Chocolate to 14oz
-Mash much higher, I'm thinking 154-158.
-Also cut the 10min hop addition to 0.5oz

The recipe listed is absolutely fantastic, but it blurs the lines between a dry stout and milk stout in taste for me. It's a great beer, but i'm looking to get closer to LHMS, and the sweet stout BJCP category. This recipe obviously has a lot of mouthfeel, but it lacks the creamy chocolate smoothness that LHMS has.

I'll give it a re-brew, and li'll post how the revised recipe turned out.

You add non-sanitized yeast nutrient to you cooled wort? Why?

The directions on the nutrient say to add it in the last 10 of the boil.

Have this one coming up next, what is consensus on bottle conditioning time?

Thanks for input

i never had a problem with adding yeast nutrient to cooled wort. I thinking if you boil it you are basically killing the yeast nutrient. I don't think yeast nutrient needs to be sanitized. I make a lot of wine and have never sanitized it, or needed to do that, or ever heard of needing to sanitize it.

That was the first time using yeast nutrient. I purchased LD Carlson yeast nutrient. It called for 1 tsp per gallon, but I just wanted to use a little bit the first time to make sure nothing went wrong.

Just asked midwestsupplies (where I purchased it from) They suggest I cool it first. But said it wouldn't harm it if I added doing the last 10 min of the boil. Next time, I might try adding the yeast nutrient after I cool.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention shadows. This is only my 3rd brew so I am still in the learning stage. Hopefully, I never leave the learning stage though!

No problem I'm still learning as well. Happy Brewing and like us know how this turns out. I have everything to make this as well just have no room at the moment to brew it just yet.

Kegged this clone today. Hoping that it's still a bit young. Been in primary for three weeks and a bit astringent. Thinking that time will mellow it out a bit. Too bad it was supposed to go up for fishing opener this coming weekend. I did sneak about a gallon into my rum barrel just to see what happens.
