I will say other than the sweetness a side-by-side comparison with the Left Hand Milk Stout was nearly spot on. Will revisit the tasting in a month or so.

yeah I dunno if the original used a starter, but i had a very nice healthy yeast starter, and let it go for about 15 days to achieve the 1.014. also I used the wyeast american ale smack packs in my starter, not the safeales

I'm planning to let this one sit in the bottles for a couple months but decided to sneak a taste last night - it's only been in the bottle for five weeks, but WOW! It's amazing already.

This beer is out-freakin'-standing! A must brew for anyone loving LH Milk Stout. By the way, mine finished at 1.027 (24 days in primary) as I see some of the others also did. Body is just right I wouldn't want it any more dry.

Great beer!

Brewed this as my first AG batch and so far it tastes and smells amazing, after a week in the primary its at 1.017 i was a little low on the target OG i ended at 1.056. Not bad considering my mash temps werent quite hit.

if you had a total 5 gal batch, how much of the boil did you lose if you started with over 6 gal due to heat and absorption from the grains versus amount of sparge water used?

I probably start with over 8 gallons of dechlorinated water. Depending on the amount of grain, I probably lose a gallon+ to the grains. I sparge until I reach the 7 gallon mark in my kettle. On a 60 minute boil, I will generally boil off 1.5 gallons of water but you can only really tell once the wort cools because wort expands as the temp rises. I'll then siphon the wort from the kettle to my bucket fermenter leaving anywhere from 1/4 - 1/2 gallon of the sludge behind (hops, loose grains, etc.). So, I will end up with around 5.0 gallons in the bucket. Sometimes it's a bit more and sometimes a bit less. If you have a yeast starter, that adds a bit more to the volume as well.

I finally got around to bottling this... sat in Primary for about 5-6 weeks. This tastes fantastic, certainly not too sweet to my tastes. Of course its not going to be a stout that you down a ton of them.

Can't wait for it to carb up.

I brewed this about a month ago and haven't gotten around to kegging, but had a few of these at a bar on a business trip and compared to the samples it is pretty much spot on. Can't wait to hook this up to my new nitro set up. Great Recipe!
