Just tasted after 4 weeks in primary. Hydrometer reads 1.016 for second consecutive week so I will bottle in the next couple days. OG was 1.06. Tastes a little 'hot' on the finish. Was expecting it to taste a little smoother and it actually did a week ago. I am a newby and followed the extract recipe. A little concerned by the taste and change of the taste since last week. Should I be? It doesn't taste bad just has a bit of bite to it I did not anticipate.

Currently, my fermenter is filled with my THIRD batch of this delicious brew. This time, I took particular care during the sparge, attempting to rinse as much of the grain sugar as possible into the wort. I must have succeeded because my initial specific gravity was a couple of points higher than in the other two batches. And THIS time, I'm going to be more patient, and let it sit in primary...and maybe secondary...for a longer period of time.

Woohoo! Just brewed this for the first time (extract version). I ended with 1.058 OG and it tastes amazing! (chocolate and smokey is what I taste). I can't wait to try this when it's finished.

Opened my first bottles of this the other night after brewing it on Good Friday. Hands down one of my favorite beers I've ever had. Period. I'll be brewing this one again for sure. Nice work NCBeerNut!

Hi, new brewer here. My first beer (kit) got infected, so I decided to be bold and try this recipe. Made a 3g extract batch and most of it is gone already, it's that good!

I did not use a starter and had fermentation within 48 hours. I used the 1-pound chocolate bar from Trader Joe's for chips, and the flavor is just OK; next time I will use chocolate with a higher percentage of cocoa - 72% or more.
My stout-loving from buddies approved this beer with high regard, though one person mentioned overcarbonation (but he's a Guinness drinker, so he's probably used to the cream feel of nitrogen).
I will definitely be brewing this one again, thanks/

Got the necessary ingredients from LHBS today. Will probably brew this up Monday. Probably will use US-05 as it is getting a little warm in my equipment room for Notty. This will probably be the last ale of the summer, planning to put this away for a while and enjoy the first ones for my birthday in late December.

EDIT: Brewed today. She's off!

I'm down to my last bottle--everybody who has tasted it liked it.

I want to add some oatmeal to my next batdh for a little more mouthfeel. Maybe a stupid question, but do I still call it Deception Cream Stout? I don't want to claim my own name for such a trivial change, yet I don't want to call my brew something it is not.

What name should I put on the bottles?

And in general, how much would a recipe have to change before you would give it a different name?

I believe the "deception" comes from the fact that the beer tastes like chocolate and coffee, but there is no chocolate or coffee anywhere in the ingredients

The question was regarding the use of the name.

Trying to give due to the recipe's creator, do I still call it Deception Cream Stout or not (because I altered the recipe)?
