    I started another batch today with TreeTop juice & "Imperial Brown Sugar" from CostCo and got
    an OG of 1.078 @ 72 oF, so I guess it's the juice/sugar. The solution is definitely *darker*

    Ok, so I just cracked open one of my chocolate oatmeal stouts, and it's initially a little
    disappointing... Over time, I think the chocolate "nose" will develop, but it doesn't really

    So, I'd like to try to develop a cheaper version of this batch that I'm drinking. My goal is to
