Thanks for your help. Well I live in Edmonton and there is only one shop with any real grain selection... and when they're out of something it takes a few weeks to get more (unless I mail order, which has its own problems).

I got a kilo of their chocolate rye. I think I'll try and sub with that... but maybe with slightly lower proportions than chocolate barley. I also plan to add vanilla, coco and cinnamon to the mix. any thoughts?

Go easy on the vanilla and use more cocoa than you think is needed. I usually dump about 8-10oz. of bakers unsweetened cocoa powder into my chocolate stout recipe.

Unless the Lovibond is greatly different, I'd just use the same amount as the recipe calls for.
