Just checked my SG on this batch after fermenting for almost 2 weeks.
Oct 6 OG = 1.062
Oct 18 SG = 1.016

A little lower than I wanted, but oh well. Also the mouth feel was a little thinner than I wanted, but I'm hoping it wont be as noticeable once it's on gas. I plan to start at 2 volumes and see what it's like. The sample tastes really good, chocolately and slightly smokey. Not much bitterness detectable, but not cloyingly sweet by any means.

here are some pics of the hydro sample. You can see how dark it is, even in direct sunlight.

Just got done brewing this over the weekend. Went with the PM/Extract version and upped the dme and hops a little to boost it up. It's going like crazy in the fermenter right now, it should have gotten a blow off tube because the airlock has been changed 3 times now. My OG was somewhere in the mid 60's and the sample tasted great. Pitched this one without a started and pitched with Wyeast 1028.

Just got done brewing this one about 10 days ago... SG at 1.016 from 1.056... so I'm stoked... I added a little bit of hershey special dark powder to this one at flame out but is it common to have some pronounced bitterness over the chocolately coffee tones early? I assuming they'll probably tone down over the next 45 days of primary and bottle conditioning but just wanted to see if anyone else noticed that bitterness early...

I popped one open from my batch that got bottled on 29 September 2011. It was well-carbonated and the flavors had all mellowed together. I drank it with some outstanding homemade pizza and thoroughly enjoyed both the beer and the pizza!

I will definitely brew this recipe again...and again...and again...well, you get the idea!

This is a good brew! Mine has been in the bottle 9 days and primaried for 3 weeks. It obviously needs to age a little, but is pretty freaking good right now! I am getting ready to pop the top of my 2nd for the evening. I plan to try this as an all grain. This freakin extract is too damned expensive.

I brewed this up with a 3 1/2 gallon boil. Does anyone know what affect that might have on this beer as far as lactose utilization, etc?

I understand the original extract recipe on page 1 was a partial boil of, I think 4 or 4 1/2 gal. I brewed this with a 3.25 gal boil myself. I increased hops slightly to get the same IBU's, but didn't change anything else. Lactose is a non-fermentable sugar, so I don't think it's necessary to adjust? Perhaps someone more experienced can confirm. I topped off to1.061. The SG sample tasted like it's got the potential to be really good. After much less than 24 hrs it's fermenting like crazy; blow tube is definitely necessary (I made a 1 liter starter).

Just scale the lactose accordingly; it is non-fermentable but fully utilized.

When you say scale the lactose, you mean more for a smaller boil? I did a 3 1/2 gallon boil for this one and after reading this and that 1 lb of lactose for 5 gallons is more typical, I'm a little concerned about how this is going to turn out.

I think he was thinking you made a 3.5 gal batch...then you should scale the lactose back. If you made a 5 gal batch with a 3.5 gal boil, you wouldn't want to change the amount. Either way I think you are just fine. Rdwhahb!
