This may have been mentioned earlier but I couldn't find it. What cocoa powder did you use? I am having problems finding the fat free variety.

This is what I use:


I get it at a food coop. If you can't find it, then get whatever you can that has the lowest fat content. Other folks have used regular cocoa powder and reported they still got decent head, but you might as well try to give yourself every advantage you can.

Really just looked at this big grain bill. I don't think my 5 gallon pot could handle it at 1.5 qt/lb it comes out to about 4.5 gallons or 1.25 qt/lb it comes out to about 3.77 gallons..

Before I set up my beverage cooler mashtun, I made this using a standard pasta pot. Filled it to the brim, but it worked!

Howdy. I think I'm gonna tack on your brew to the end of my queue (I have a few non-mash recipes I want to try before building a MLT and going deeper down the brewing rabbit hole) cause I've loved just about every other choco-oat stout I've had.

To your thought about espresso, the flavors mixing in my head are intriguing and I think I'd love to try that. How would you go about adding espresso? Drop a couple brewed shots into the wort or add the grind itself and when? (My guess is the latter.) Hey, if you're gonna go bitter, do it right, eh?

I'd cold brew it in the fridge and add it... I dunno. Maybe in secondary?

Just had my first one of these its only been two weeks since bottling but I was curious I ended up using about half the coco powder that the recipe called for because i forgot to add it during the boil so I boiled it up seperatly and raked into secondary on top of it. It has a very strong chocolate nose and it finishes with a slight coco taste but it is not all chocolate in your face which is good. Even after two weeks in the bottles one made me want to have a few more.

If it's not all chocolate in your face, you did it wrong.

But if you like it that way, then all's well that ends well. Glad you like it.

Im completely new to making recipes, or what goes into them, but this sounds absolutely delicious.

I''ve read through a number of pages in this thread, has someone posted a all-grain version of this, or can tell me what to replace the extract with? And will it change much of the flavour of this beer?
