    I've used 1/4# of chocolate wheat (along with 1/4# of Special B) in a weizenbock to excellent
    effect. It certainly will give some roastiness, though less of a coffee/chocolate flavor than
    roasted barl...

    Why are you using the 6 row, if you don't mind me asking? I've only ever used it when I had an
    extremely high percentage of undermodified malts that wouldn't convert themselves. For this
    recipe, I thi...

    I quite liked the CYBI recipe for the Black Butte Porter someone mentioned above, but my
    favorite Porter is an all-grain conversion of an old BYO recipe (Nosferatu's Revenge). It's
    incredibly smooth a...

    I've got a Patersbier going with 3787 now. I'll harvest the yeast and try this in a couple

    I may have to make this myself. Any advice? Was your product cidery from all the sugar? I'm
    also thinking about adding some Hungarian oak cubes.

    Keep the pics coming! I just got my GE 7.0 delivered today, so this thread was a timely
    discovery. It'll probably be at least another couple months before I can do the conversion,
    since I promised my ...

    It sounds like an interesting experiment. I think boiling the herbs would be a mistake, though,
    from my cooking experience. Whenever you boil fresh herbs, you end up losing most of the flavor

    This was my first time using the golden naked oats, and I'll definitely be giving them another
