Ahh, I didn't notice that bit of detail.

Yes, in the aisle with the other common spices. They even come in the same spice jars, with just one bean inside. Check the prices, as there was a big difference between some brands versus others.

Costco has good ones for a good price. I get mine at the hippy store (food co-op) near here.

Just moved my primary to the secondary and added the vanilla beans (split and soaked in vodka for a week). The gravity was 1.011, making it approx a 7.9% AC. A bit stronger than I had planned, may have to let it sit for awhile longer, but it tasted great!

20 oz of cocoa for 13 gallons may a bit on the chocolatey side, but my girlfriend asked that I make it extra chocolatey. I also added an extra vanilla bean to mellow it out more.

Overall from what I can tell so far this is a great all-grain batch, I will post an update once it's kegged and bottled, and has had a few weeks to come together.

It's been a while since I read through this thread. Has anyone tried putting this on nitro?

This went into the primary last night, 1.080 hydrometer reading. Pitched at around midnight or so, and fermentation is giong quite well 7 hours later. I don't think I've ever seen fermentation kick in this quickly!

The mash was a killer... like trying to strain molassis...

Crazy thing is they sold out everywhere by noon, even all of the bars were tapped out by 5:30! So I told her that we could make a brew that would put theirs to shame, this was about the time I stumbled onto this thread. I recently got a new supplier in the area, and he doesn't have any extracts, so I pieced together an all-grain recipe based on yours. Just finished brewing it and got it settled into the primary, and it looks amazing, recipe goes as follows:

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WL002 English Ale
Yeast Starter: 1 qt amber dme overnight
Batch Size (Gallons): 13
Original Gravity: 1.088

Ingredients
17 lb 2 Row
5 lb Pale Ale
5 lb Flaked Oats
4 lb CaraMunich
2.5 lb Crystal 60L
2 lb Carastan
2 lb Chocolate Malt
2 lb Barley (Roasted)
20 oz Ghirardelli Cocoa Powder (last 10 min)
4 oz Fuggles (60 min)
1 oz Fuggles (last 3 min)
0.5 oz Amarillo (last 3 min)
3/4 lb. Brown Sugar
4-5 Madagascar Vanilla Beans (secondary)

I only added the brown sugar because I got too much water out of the mash, and knew it wouldn't end up as strong as I wanted. Should end up around 7.5% ABV. I also just added the Amarillo because I had it sitting around, and thought it would mix well with the brew and give it a nice aroma. So far tastes like chocolate milk and is about as thick and beautiful as any beer I've made so far. I can't wait until this has fermented out and is ready for the keg. I will give you guys an update as it progresses, but I'm pretty excited about this!
---how could I translate this into a 5 gal batch?

Brewed this one today, based on the original recipe posted, I did however add in 6oz of Lactose to counter the bitterness of the chocolate.

OG came out to 1.083, some killer efficiency (combined with the lactose) really looking forward to this one. Will post my thoughts after I get it finished.

Initial tasting thoughts were sweet chocolate up front and then bitterness of the hops came through in the after taste, quite good so far.

Edit: Efficiency 89%
