My LHBS had pale/pilsner LME instead of amber. I grabbed 0.2 lb of black patent to make up for the difference. Is this a good idea or would it throw off the flavor? Thanks.

It'll change it some, but the cocoa dominates this beer so much it won't be that big of a difference, I think. I haven't really used black patent so I don't know from experience how strong of a flavor it imparts.

Hey chshrecat. Thanks for the recipe. Got 2 beers out of this. Bottled half and kegged the other half with cherry extract. Choco-Cherry Stout. About 6 wks old. Delicious.

I'm racking to secondary this weekend with the vanilla bean that I have soaking in black cherry vodka (Effen). Hope I don't confuse the beer with the cherry! My options were that, regular or vanilla vodka, spiced rum, clear rum, or bourbon.

Not an urgent post:

Everything seemed to go well. I used 1 cup (about 4oz) of cocoa powder to play it safe. Initial gravity was 1.063 but may have been higher if I had stirred thoroughly (I was tired and forgot). However, it was my first BIAB partial mash. Within 6 hours, it bubbled fast and continued for 2.5 days. It smelled like fuggles which is nice but I had hoped for a chocolate cloud above my fermenter.

4 ounces of cocoa won't make it as over the top as I usually make it, but it'll still have definite chocolate flavor.

I bottled mine a few days ago. I was surprised when I opened the secondary to see sort of a white cloudy substance on top. I hope it's just nothing, as it smelled like chocolate liquor. Really looking forward to enjoying this by Christmas.

Thanks for the recipe Chshre! A bastardization of your recipe (forgot the oats at the LHBS and added a little lactose) placed 2nd in Stouts (8 entries) at the Badger Brew-Off. This being my second all grain batch I'm pretty pleased with it and can't wait for my scoresheet back. I'm going to definitely brew it again, the way it was meant to be. Although SWMBO really likes the lactose...and I'm on the fence. Anyway, cheers. Everyone loves it.

EDIT: By the way it was less than a month in bottles when it was judged. To me, this beer is excellent young. I think the lactose has something to do with that since it, along with the vanilla, sort of rounds out and softens the chocolate bitterness that, combined with the roastiness, could overpower a little when young.
