Hellbentbrewco,

I am having the same trouble, tastes great just a little flat. It has been at 36 degrees and 12 PSI for 4 weeks yesterday. This is my first attempt at force carb and my only other beer in still in seconday so I have nothing to compare it to.

My buddy had this problem with his batch. He tried bottling but they wouldnt carb so he kegged them and they carbed fine.

I bottled mine from the same batch and they are carbed but it is low. My wife opened a warm one (cooking some cubcakes, yummmmm) and the thing fizzed all over the place. ?????

Thanks. I have that chart taped to the side of my freezer. Maybe Ill just throw some corn sugar in keg and call it a day.

i'd be up for trying the cake recipe.

did you guys try adding a little bit of yeast or stirring up the slurry a little on the bottom if you had a long secondary time? i don't keg, but i've had issues with carbonation when I have long secondaries, so i pitch a tiny bit of yeast when i bottle on these long aging beers (oaked stuff mostly that go for almost 6 weeks before the bottle). might not be the problem, but worth looking at with some of the long secondaries i have seen reported here.

I know this is a wicked old post but I just wanted to say that you can find extract / partial mash / all-grain versions of this in Clone Brews, 2nd Edition.

edit : didn't notice this thread was 19 pages long. Apologies if someone already referenced the CB recipe.

so, anyone still following this post that has brewed the beer. How long do I bottle condition for and how much cocoa powder would you recommend to get just a hint of the chocolate to it, like 2 oz ???

Thx for the help

Brewed this today after an irish red. Pretty ambitious day. Anyway I have never had the left hand but this looked and smelled delicious. Can't wait to try it. First milk stout ag. Could be a regular in my fridge very soon. Thanks for the recipe.
