Is that 1 week in primary, 4 weeks in secondary, then another couple of weeks bottle carbing? Do you even bottle carb this?

...I don't really drink beer, more into cider and mead for homebrewing, but this recipe might convert me.

alright, i know that you do carb stouts now. this would require 3/4 cup of dextrose at bottling... is that what the 4 week period is about though? or is it 5 weeks in carboy and then 2-3 in bottles?

I tried something a little similar to this - Here's the recipe that I tried -

6 lbs Munton's Light DME
1 lb Chocolate
.5 lb Roasted Barley
.5 lb Black Patent
1 oz Fuggles (60 min)
1 oz Kent Goldings (10 min)
1 lb Lactose Powder (30 min)
2 oz Sweet Orange Peel (added to secondary)
1 packet Safeale US-05 (11.5 grams)

I just tried a bottle last night, and I experienced the same issues as the OP had with his recipe with not tasting the orange. Its still a pretty decent sweet stout, but negligible orange flavor. Then again, I differed as I added it to the secondary and not at bottling. Maybe I should have added a larger amount, and to the boil?

how would you get more orange just add more zest to the vodka or adding it to the boil or flavoring?

I'm working on a recipe for this that I'm going to brew in a couple days. Mine will have a lower og and abv so it actually fits within the oatmeal stout category without the addition of the lactose, cocoa and oranges. I'm also trying to locate fat-free cocoa powder to help with head retention.
Anyway, taking Dubbel Dach's advice of using more orange I'm thinking of 1oz sweet orange peel and the zest of 2 organic oranges last 5 mins of boil. Then sectioning the 2 oranges and steeping them in the wort from flameout for 30 mins.
Any thoughts on this process? I've never done it beforec but calagionec recomends this process for fruit in his Extreme Brewing book.
