This sounds amazing, however I'm very much a beginner brewer stuck on my own. What I wanted to do was scale this back to one gallon (in case I royally bone it up), and I understand how to scale back the ingredients but I guess my questions relate to would I still heat everything to the same temperatures for the same amount of time? (150 mash for 1 hour?) My thought process was that since there'd be so much less, there may be variations. Please forgive my lack of knowledge! Any suggestions or advice would be much appreciated! Thanks. . .

Unless you're buying a "just add water" premade kit, you always want to boil. Boil times are always the same no matter how much you make. Just scale the ingredients (including water), other than the yeast, and keep the process the same.

I'm not buying a premade kit. Thank you very much for your quick and clear response! I think I'm going to try this on the upcoming weekend! BBQ and (small) brew day, hah. Thanks again for posting! I'll update later on how things turn out for a beginner!

Haha, I can only imagine! This recipe sounds delicious. It's just, like I said, I'm VERY new and am worried about ruining the batch...and if that's going to be the case, I'd feel much better about it if I only ruined 1 gallon. Wanna really focus on technique and such before I let my eyes get too big!

I can't wait to brew this one. This is going to be my birthday present to myself. I've got some vanilla beans I've had soaking in some rum for a bit that should go real nice in this. I was thinking of adding some chocolate extract at kegging time too just to psh it over the edge. Sounds like an awesome brew from all of the comments. Thanks!

If you go with the 9oz, you don't need anything to push it over the edge. It's already over the edge, in the ravine and burst into flames.

Im getting more and more excited about brewingthis.

Couple of questions.

I have converted it to all grain, so hope it comes out the same. Also im in the UK, and the chocolate malt here is darker, and adds more to teh OG than the US chocolate malt. Should i just work out and use less of this?

I don't think I've used UK chocolate so I'm not sure how it would come out either way. But I think it'll still be tasty.
