Don't think it would take much longer than usual.

I got #7.5 of blackberries yesterday. In the freezer now. To save until ready to brew, I'm going to vacuum seal them into #1 bags. Looking at the fruit beers, they average #3 to #5 in a 5gal batch. Do you think #5 will be enough to add a good berry flavor to the beer? Hmm, Chocolate Blackberry oatmeal stout. OH YEAH

Your recipe is a great base for so many idea's.

Thanks!

I think 5# would be plenty. 3 or 4 would probably do it, really, but if you want the blackberry to be more pronounced, then 5 would do it.

I'm also thinking about throwing some toasted coconut in it sometime too.

A friend ask me a while back about doing that. He love the toasted coconut marshmallows. LOL Going to get my grains (hopefully) this week to get the blackberry chocolate oatmeal milk stout together.

Sorry if I am repeating this question as I might have skipped over it somewhere in the long thread...

As I have continually came back to this recipe and find myself salivating at the thought of making it for myself, I think a touch more of a caramel or toffee note pulling through the chocolate would be awesome. Would upping the amount of caramel/crystal malt assist with this or should I look to another method such as an extract if there is one?

Thanks in advance for any help or smart a** comments!

Just bottled this one a few nights ago; very excited to try it carb'd. I left it on the vanilla bean for 10 days and the vanilla really came through strong. I'm hoping the vanilla relaxes as it conditions but I'll definitely be brewing this again. Thanks for the recipe ChshreCat.

ChshreCat, We talked about the black berry addition to your stout. If i wanted to boost the ABV would it make a favor difference using a cane or corn sugar to do this Vs using DME. I understand making this a bigger beer will require extra aging.
