Wow - so my keg of this floated in 1 week. Um yeah, my peeps liked it a lot. Next time I'll do 10 gallons.

Josiah:

Toga: Works for me!

I've been thinking about playing around with this recipe. There's plenty of directions I could go. Add some espresso, maybe.

Or pump it up into a big beer. Like a big, chocolate winter warmer. Not that it's small beer now, but kick the OG up another 20-30 points and then cellar it. Maybe brew in the spring and then break it out in the dead of winter.

Then there's the cherry possibilities.

OK, I am in! Brewed this up yesterday and it's bubbling away in the primary now. Since it was such a high grain bill for a partial mash, I used about .75 G of water to 'sparge' the grain bag. Basically just dunked grain bag after removing from my boiling pot, then added that water back to the main pot before the boil. Starting water volume was really 5.75 G, with at least .5-.75 G lost to evap and to the grain. My s.g. was 1.065.

As it was sitting in the water for the 'sparge', I realized that I could likely make a smaller beer out of the second runnings. Not having any spare yeast/hops, I decided not to-- but may try this next time around. I wonder if anyone's tried?

Also, Chshre...forgot to ask....

Second line of the recipe calls for S-05, however ingredient list calls for S-04. I wound up using S-04...but just wanted to clarify. I am sure one is a typo, but which one? ;-)

Yeah, someone noticed that right off the bat, but I can't edit that part of the recipe post. I used S-04, but S-05 would be good too, just a little different in flavor profile.

I would love to try this but had a couple of quick questions. I like bitter but i like sweet a little better i would LOVE to add lactose to it just to sweeten it up a little (i will be adding vanilla) but my girlfriend is lactose intolerant and i dont want to make something she cant drink while i rub it in her face. Does anyone know of a way to sweeten it up a little bit? I perfer youngs double chocolate stout to genise if that helps with my tastes.

Could try to add some crystal malts. Or try something like splenda or stevia at bottling time. maybe back off a little on the cocoa.

I wouldn't. That stuff has lots of other ingredients you don't want. Besides, the sweetness of those come from sugar, which would ferment out, and you'd just end up with bitter again. Better to just go wtih fat-free cocoa and some sort of sweetener that's not fermentable.
