3lb White Wheat
2lb Caramel/Crystal Malt 60L
1.5lb Chocolate Malt
1lb Roasted Barley
1lb Lactose

Is giving me a color of 26.67 SRM, as opposed to the 36 in the original recipe?

I *may* have the willpower to let it sit through the summer. It's gonna start getting toasty soon, so will be focusing on the pale ales and blondes to get me through the dog days, and could POSSIBLY put the keg of this in the cellar, and *forget* about it...!

It'd better be the best damned stout I've ever had, the way you lot have hyped it up!
The color of this one is by no means "light". I have literally held this one up to a bare light bulb and it is so black that I couldn't see even a hint of light coming through. And yes, I know what you mean by the hype, but this is the best damned stout I have ever had, and suprisingly found that it is a PERFECT beer to use to introduce BMC'ers to something different. Everyone loves it, BMC'ers, Homebrewers, beersnobs... Everyone (well, Ok, everyone but my wife... but she doesn't count... she is the ultra hard core BMC'er.)

I don't like the way it ages personally. Definitely better in the first 6 months. Tinkering around in BeerSmith, I can't figure out why your color is off though. Are you sure you aren't entering Pale Chocolate or something? I am calculating with 350 SRM Chocolate Malt and 300 SRM RB and it comes out to roughly 35 SRM.

I'm brewing a split batch with my buddy, so five gallons goes with him in bottles, and five with me in a keg. I guarantee that his won't last a month after bottling. Mine will probably hit the six months, since I'm on a serious hop kick at the moment, but this'll be nice after the summer, I'm thinking.

Nope, am definitely using the 350L Chocolate and the 300 RB in the recipe. In my head the 35 SRM makes sense, since the last stout I made had just a couple of ounces in there and it came out black as night. Am thinking it's Beertools being weird.

Speak o' the devil.

We're going to be getting a little less than we thought too - the thing is absolutely blowing up in the fermentation chamber. Came down last night, there was about a beer's worth all over the floor, leaked out, and soaked into the bottom of the wood. Ditched the silly airlock, there's a blowoff tube on each, and THAT was full this morning!

Wow. Always nice to know the yeasties are doing their thing, though. None of this "will they or won't they".

How many beers worth do you think we spilled on Rick's floor? aka "the natural syphon incident"

im probably going to order the grains for this one soon, do you think the 1450 yeast plays a big part in the recipe?

This will be my first beer using wheat. What kind of flavor does it impart to the beer?

I am not a huge fan of wheat beers, but I believe it's because of the flavor the wheat style yeasts contribute. Could be wrong...

The wheat is only there to aid in head retention and texture. It will not make any flavor contributions to this recipe.

The flavors wheat contributes even at 50% of the grist as in wheat beers are subtle. In this beer, there is only a small amount, and any very slight flavor it would have contributed is going to be completely overpowered by the roasted grains. So yeah, don't fear the wheat.
