I bottled mine and the first month is coffee forward, still a good beer. After 6-8 weeks the chocolate comes forward and the coffee dissipates revealing a different beer. Another guy in my club asked for the recipe after having it a month after bottling, I gave him the recipe along with a bottle with about 3months of age on it so he could take the difference.

Just did mine for the second year in a row. I've tweaked the recipe slightly and have done a second run that I keg that's a little more sessionable. More economical. My first run is big, I'll be aging on Oak for 2 months in the secondary and botteling. Here the recipe:

#17 2 row
#1 American Chocolate malt
14oz Roasted Barley
8oz American black patent malt
8oz crystal 120L
#2 flaked oats
Couple handfuls of rice
.5oz Nugget pellets 60 mins
.5 Mt hood pellets 30 mins
.5 Mt hood pellets 5 mins
At 15 min addition
.5oz MD, 4oz of powdered unsweetened hersheys chocolate, and Yeast nutrient
Flameout- 2oz ground colombian coffee
Mashed for 90 at 155
2 packages of dry safeale S-04 yeast
OG= 1.089
Will primary for 2-3 weeks, then 2ndary with 2 toasted oak spirals for 2 months
Will bottle


2nd run session stout
.5oz Nugget for 60
.5oz Mt Hood 30
.5oz Mt Hood 5
1oz MD at 15, 2oz of powdered unsweetened hersheys chocolate, yeast nutrient
Last 5 - #1lb DME
Flameout – 1oz Colombian coffee
1 packet Safeale 04
OG= 1.050
Will let ferment for 2 weeks then keg

Awesome idea to split the runnings! I honestly went down to the basement to grab a bottle of beer and had the breakfast stout in my hand but wasn't decided against the 10% beer and went with something more sessionable. Definitely let us know how it turns out!

I bottled this today with a little extra coffee and it seemed a little too bitter... will this mellow in the bottle after a month or so?

It'll mellow out big time with age...if your OG came in above 80 - 85 then it will probly take longer to mellow. I kegged my last batch, and it was at its best when i cashed the keg like 5months after brew day

pretty sure it was 81, I drank an actual founders breakfast last night, and my uncarbonated stout was close to the real thing but not exact

I kegged mine about a month ago and the first sample I tasted was about a week after that. It was bitter and had a really strong coffee flavor. Not bad, but pretty harsh. I'm drinking a glass right now and in the three weeks since the last sample it has mellowed out a lot. The coffee and bitterness are much more mellow and smooth now. It tastes great and seems likely that it will get even better.

this is a big beer with a lot of intense flavors. it isn't meant to be drunk fresh. most folks agree this beer peaks around 6 months. so yes, in 1 month the coffee will mellow... and even more so in 6 months.

two weeks after bottling I tasted this next to a founder's breakfast stout. I don't think mine was as hoppy or as coffee forward, chocolate still came through. Aroma was close, so was body. I wasn't trying to make an exact clone, just a good stout and I think I accomplished that goal! I can post my recipe if there is an interest

Wow, just tasted this after 10 days fermentation ... came from 1.077 to 1.022... not bad, 7.2%.. this is the first beer that I ever sat down and just enjoyed drinking the uncarbonated tester sample... delicious

the coffee is pretty full on right now.. I used 2oz of Lavazza ground straight in at flameout

Not much chocolate... looking forward to seeing how this comes out..

Whats people's opinion.. to nitro or not too nitro??

So I have 10 days already in primary... thinking 3 weeks primary then rack my 25L to 2 kegs so I can taste the difference over time..maybe have one before Christmas now and leave the rest till Paddy's day? OR shall I be patient and keep it all for 5 months?

man thats the first time I ever used a blow off tube... that was wild.. used White Labs Irish Ale, made a starter... BOOM..6 hours later I have black stuff on the roof of my fermenter fridge.. result!!
