hahaha cat: the way you talk about this, it seems like it's chocolate with a hint of beer. =P I'm secondary-ing a 2 gallon of it tomorrow.

Hmm. Just realized that I do not have a bean, nor do I know where to acquire one. I understand that 2 tsps of vanilla extract is comparable to 1 medium sized bean. Has anyone tried this? And Chshre; would you strongly advise against this?

You really don't want vanilla flavor coming through. All the vanilla does is temper the bitterness of the chocolate a little bit. Shouldn't be hard to find a bean if you check around. If you just brewed this, you have time.

Found beans at HEB! One bean at Whole Foods is 6.99 for the cost of the glass jar it comes in, you get 2 beans at HEB for 3.99. Can't WAIT for this stout to finish conditioning! Thanks ChShRe

Anyone else who has brewed this recently have any results? I am probably going to brew this in the next week so I'm just looking for more feedback and/or things to look out for or change. Thanks.

The only warning I'd give you is that if you don't really... REALLY like bitter dark chocolate, you might back off on the cocoa. The recipe, as it is, is very bitter chocolate forward. It's not for everyone, but for those of us who really like dark chocolate, the bitter the better, it's perfect.

I love dark chocolate; milk chocolate isn't even close in my book, so I'll probably love it. Thanks for the recipe.

I must make this. It sounds fabulous. I too have been a bit let down by commercial "Chocolate" stouts.

One question--I want to do this all-grain, so obviously I will substitute more 2-row for the LME (or was it DME?). Will the color still be OK, or should I fiddle with adding a little more dark grains a bit? I would like to stay as close to your original recipe as possible.

Or....substitute Maris Otter for the 2 row to get a little more color? What do you think?

Maybe replace it with a mix of 2-row and munich? That'd add a little color and sweetness.
