Default Got a Recipe From Local Brewery and Need Help

I got a recipe from a local large brewery and need help decoding it - what are the following?

Crisp crystal 77 7-8%
Crisp Chocolate 3-4%
Crisp Black 3-4%
Crisp Roast 3-4%

Thanks for your help.. i am really looking forward to this - also how do I know how much to use of each.... i realize it gives a percentage but how do i know how many pounds the recipe is? Maybe i am just being stupid lol.

Thanks

Get a program like Beersmith. You can calculate the percentages on how many gallons you want to make.

I'm assuming there is some 2 row in there also?

I would assume they mean chocolate malt, black barley, and roasted barley. The roasted barley would give you the coffee flavor.

I believe Crisp is a brand name, like Briess or Weyerman.

Not sure what crystal 77 is. Maybe crystal 70?
Chocolate = Chocolate Malt?
Black = Black Patent?
Roast = Roasted barley?

What style of beer is this recipe for? I'm assuming something dark like a stout or porter?

Crisp is the maltster. Think "Brand" if you will

crystal 77 7-8%

Would be a crystal or caramel malt of 77L you could source some or mix up some 60L with 80/90L Use enough to be seven or eight percent of the grist

Chocolate 3-4%

Chocolate Roasted Malt 3 - 4 percent of grist

Black 3-4%

Black Patent Malt 3 to 4 percent of grist

Roast 3-4%

Roasted Barley, 3-4 % of grist

Make up the rest with something like British Pale Malt

What beer is this?

I think to know what type of yeast we'd have to see the full malt bill, so we can figure out what would work well with it. However, if it's an oatmeal stout, you probably couldn't go wrong with some Nottingham
