Default All-Grain - Founder's Breakfast Stout Clone

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Safale S-04
Yeast Starter: No
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.086
Final Gravity: 1.023
IBU: 30.3
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 36.22
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 2 weeks @ 65F
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 4 weeks @ 65F
Tasting Notes: Tweaked BYO's recipe to match stats on Founder's website.



16 lbs. American 2-row
1 lbs American Chocolate Malt
.75 lbs Roasted Barley
9 oz American Black Patent
7 oz Crystal Malt 120°L
22 oz Oats Flaked

.5 oz Nugget (Whole, 13.00 %AA) boiled 60 min.
.5 oz Mt. Hood (Pellets, 5.00 %AA) boiled 30 min.
.5 oz Mt. Hood (Pellets, 5.00 %AA) boiled 2 min.

2 oz Ground Sumatran coffee at flameout
2 oz Ground Kona coffee cold brewed, added at bottling
2.5 oz Dark bittersweet baker's chocolate at 15 mins.
1.5 oz Unsweetened chocolate baking nibs at 15 mins.

2 pkg. DCL Yeast Safale S-04 Top Quality Ale Yeast

Mashed at 155F for 60 mins. 1.33 qt/lb.

Again, BYO's Replicator numbers didn't match up to Founder's website, so I adjusted. Specifically, the IBUs are waaaay off.

I made an extract version of that recipe (also tweaked to match Founder's website, and with Nugget/Willamette). It turned out FANTASTIC, probably my best to date. I'm excited to brew it again now that I've switched to all grain.

Bitterness: 27.0 IBU (25.0-40.0 IBU)

0.50 lb De-Bittered Black Malt (Dingemans) (550.0 SRM) Grain 3.77 %
0.50 oz Nugget [13.00 %] (60 min) Hops 20.4 IBU
0.50 oz Williamette [5.50 %] (30 min) Hops 6.6 IBU
0.50 oz Williamette [5.50 %] (0 min) Hops -
0.50 tsp Yeast Nutrient (Primary 3.0 days) Misc
1.00 items Whirlfloc Tablet (Boil 15.0 min) Misc
1 Pkgs American Ale (Wyeast Labs #1056) Yeast-Ale

Back then, Founder's listed their IBU's much lower. They appear to have made a correction since then (60 IBU's), so this recipe would actually come in quite a bit lower in IBU's than their Breakfast Stout.

What is the volume of the kona at bottling? Is it 2 oz in 1 cup - 12 cups? Also, I was reading in another thread that it is a possibility that a chocolate layer builds up at the bottom of the fermentor, did you experience that?

I had a layer of chocolate on the bottom and some at the top before I racked over to the secondary. I racked mine onto 2.5 oz of moka java beans and .75 oz of american oak chips. It smells fan-frikin-tastic. I can't wait to taste this one!

I easily have an inch and a half of chocolate on the bottom of my Better Bottle right now (9 days into 2 week 2ndary) Will hope that the s-04 compacts it slightly more in the next few days and will suspend my siphon right over the top of it with duct tape.

The recipe says 2 weeks primary 4 weeks secondary. Do you go 2 or 4 weeks in secondary?

Just consulted my calendar, and it looks like I'm splitting the difference. 2 week primary, 3 week 2ndary.

Need to bottle on 11/14 so it's ready to drink at the start of December.

Good lord, this post made me salivate. I must make this beer this weekend.

So here's the deal. I have 11.5 pounds of two row along with .5 pound of Crystal 10 already crushed in a grain sack together.

I need to add the rest of the things in this grain bill but how should I adjust for the .5 pound of Crystal 10 that is already crushed with the two row??

Thanks!
