Hey yooper...I have a batch of this that has been in primary for about 15 days...I see you say 21 day primary...would you recommend leaving it in primary for that last week...or you think I could get away with getting it in a keg to sit and start carbing up?

If that doesn't work, you could always pitch some dry yeast in to finish it out.

Well, I've been a lot less gentle with this batch than I normally am, having to move it around in my house and from container to container to bathtub to another container. But I suppose I can try rousing.

I accidentally put 8 oz of the chocolate malt in the bag and it got mixed in at the lhbs. It is now crushed with the rest of the grains. Anyone think that's going to kill the recipe, or is it worth going forward with it? I did put in 8lbs of the maris otter since I've been getting consistently low efficiency.

This looks great so I just ordered the ingredients and plan on brewing it next week. Substituting 1.3 oz. of Northdown to hit the same IBU's since I have it in the freezer and going with US-04 for the same reason. (I always keep lots of US-05 and 04on hand. Great yeasts.) I'm also going with 12 oz. of pale chocolate since it is less bitter than chocolate and it looks like that was your original intention.

I've shared a few of these with some folks at work, and the reviews have been stellar. I brewed it full-on according to directions with the ingredients from Brewmaster's Warehouse.

I washed the yeast and used it in Dawson's Multigrain Red from Northern Brewer. I then washed that yeast and made the Surly Furious Pro from NB (it's currently fermenting nicely).

Thanks for the recipe. I always make sure to tell people it's your recipe; I like to give credit where credit is due!

Fabulous recipe. For various reasons, I could only eke out 1.023ish in FG and it's still good, at 4 weeks. I thought my OG would be higher than it ended up so I actually overbittered it, so maybe that lends itself to me not noticing the higher FG. In any case, the beer looks gorgeous. It's dark but it's actually surprisingly clear if you hold it up to the light. The head is a nice, creamy light brown. Yooper, you were not kidding: this head really does last and last! I was especially impressed with the lacing.



Thanks for the recipe. I'm sure it will be enjoyed on St. Patrick's day if I can keep myself out of them til then.

P.S. please excuse the fruity tapestry in the background; that was the only place with any light.

I've now brewed this three times--twice per the exact recipe, and once with a yeast change.

I brewed this back in January using Wyeast 1099 (Witbread) with great success. I brought a bottle to our club meeting, and no one could believe that I hadn't added cocoa or chocolate nibs--the coffee and chocolate flavors are that pronounced. I kicked the keg in less than 3 weeks with the help of some friends. I rotate between this and Jamil's McQuaker Stout from Brewing Classic Styles, and everyone prefers Yooper's recipe.

Yooper, thanks for sharing--this makes an excellent beer!

I'm so glad you like it! We just love it, and I'll be making it again this spring.
