Used 8oz of cocoa powder. Couldn't find any non-fat in time, though. Oh well!

Also, I used the Northern Brewer's NeoBritania Wyeast instead. Should be some good stuff, thanks!
@bobz32 - how did the NeoBritannia work out? I have some washed and wondering how it does in a similar stout. Would be nice to not have to buy yeast for my next batch.

I opened my first bottle a couple weeks ago, after just 3 weeks in the bottle. As expected, it tasted very raw still even though it had an impressive head after the pour. The head dissipated quickly and left a flat, syrupy beer with a hot alcohol bite. That seemed to be in line with what everyone here was reporting.

I opened my next one last Friday, just short of 5 weeks in the bottle, and it has really turned the corner. It's dry and bitter, with a mouthful of roasty oatmeal goodness. The carbonation is fizzy for the first few minutes but leaves the last quarter in the glass a bit flat. Hopefully that will clean up in the next week or two, as it hasn't even conditioned for 6 weeks yet.

I can't wait to share this one and get some feedback. It's up there with some of the best stouts on the shelf. Thanks for sharing, chsrecat.

With all that alcohol, it's going to be a bit slow to carbonate. The short life of your carbonation is in line with a beer that just hasn't carbed up. Also, make sure you're chilling them for a good 48 hours before opening them to make sure.

I brewed this last friday. Hit OG on the nose at 1.070. A few days after pitching with Windsor and having activity, I noticed airlock activity Stopped. I tested gravity over a few days and was stuck at 1.032. So yesterday I repitched with nottingham thinking it would be a little hartier and kick it off again. Well, I still dont have any movement. Maybe the notingham needs more than a day to start ??? what else could I be missing here? I hope the batch isnt toast. Any advice?

Should be alright. Did you try giving it a gentle swirl to rouse the yeast? You might have had a cold snap in the night and caused the yeast to go dormant. Just a gentle swirl for a moment will get some of the yeast up into suspension again. That, or just give it time.
