    Sounds like a chocolate stout on steroids! Might have to give that a try.

    I have 4 cats, and none of them are interested at all in my blow off setup while it's bubbling.
    I'm kinda glad, though, as I really don't want them messing with it.

    It truly is sad that anyone with a webcam can post videos on the internet. There is so much
    blatantly wrong information in there, and I love his use of brewing terminology - "ferment"
    bucket, "siphon ...

    Currently drinking my Oatmeal Stout, but I don't really like it. The recipe called for 1/2
    stick of brewers licorice, which I was hesitant to add, and I wish I hadn't. I don't really
    care for licorice...

    It's just young beer. Give it some time to mellow out, especially with a 1.060 OG. Just let it

    As for never running out of beer: considering we're making five gallons at a pop, I think
    that's not gonna be a hard goal. ;) Ain't it great?If that were only true... five gallons runs
    out A LOT faste...

    Congrats, SK. It really is a great thing to drink beer that you made yourself - there's a sense
    of pride in it that I can only compare to creating a work of art. Enjoy it man!:mug:

    Kinda looks that way to me. I've never had an infected batch, but from photos I have seen that
    looks like it. Maybe someone with more experience can let you know what to do. How does it
    smell? Like vi...

    Try using FlyGuy's T-siphon. It works like a charm and costs about 3 bucks. I've never had it
    break siphon except for my own stupidity, and even then it's really easy to get the siphon
    going again.

    Thanks BierMuncher, that's what I thought. I usually leave my beers in the primary at least a
    week, usually two. Yesterday I wanted to get my beer out of the primary so that I could brew
    another batch...
