ahhh, that's good, the AAU's are identical, I was just worried that the more floral profile of the Styrians would screw up the flavor profile a bit. alls good it sound like. it's bubbling away nicely so hopefully I'll know how it is in the next 6 weeks

Transferred this to secondary yesterday after seven days in primary. Had to have a sample. It tastes very good. Can't wait for this to be done. Thanks again for the recipe.

VERY smooth, almost like drinking silk, a bit sweeter than normal but it has a nice coffee/chocolate aftertaste to it that is sexy as all get out. I'll bottle in a couple days and give it 3.5 oz of cane sugar to carb with.

all carbonated now. very nice, very nice indeed. the coffee and chocolate flavors come in very nicely and the sweet taste has been tempered. very very creamy with great head retention. I like the addition of the milk sugar. just may try it in a dryer stout since I like my beers a bit less sweet

Yeah that was why I never attempted to add it to this recipe. There's a lot of crystal malt in ithis beer, and I was worried that adding lactose would make it cloyingly sweet.

luckily it's not cloyingly sweet. just a hint of it added... the chocolate malt helps hide the sugar. still a very good addition. maybe half a lb would give it the creaminess and reduce even the mild sweetness it added

Gonna bottle this tomorrow. It was brewed just as the recipe designated and man does it smell good.

I'll check back in 2 or 3 weeks when its fully carbed.

Ok I lied I couldn't find chocolate wheat malt so i went with Black Prinz 585L. Now that it's 2 weeks old it is amazing. It's not fully carbed or aged but, everyone that tried it today wanted me to chill more.

I'm a noobling extract brewer but, I have to say this brew is worth while and don't hesitate to copy it. I cost me about $27 bucks at a homebrew store but, thats alot cheaper then the kits they put together and ten fold better.

Thanks for the recipe!

This looks crazy good, and I have almost everything I need to brew a batch, but my LHBS doesn't have Chocolate Wheat malt. Would any of the following work as a substitution?

CaraCrystal Wheat
Caramel Wheat Malt (Weyermann)
Midnight Wheat
