Sounds good! My wife & a few friends are celiacs and want a good dark beer. I was thinking of making this with a few adjustments: cutting back the cocoa to 4 oz and leaving out the vanilla, and adding some coffee, maybe 3/4 lb?
Also, I noticed you left out the rice & millet in your re-write. You think I'll be wasting my time by using them?
And how do you add candi sugar to the secondary? Boil it down or just pitch it?

Thanks!

BTW, my second batch was a GF Wit using your "Wicked Messenger" recipe. We're drinking it now and it's a hit!

I can't really say if you'd be wasting your time. I think they add a little more depth to the beer but with all the chocolate it just gets over powered. I haven't really experimented with the grains enough to give you a good answer though.

Glad you like the wit- it is one of my favorites thus far

I'm getting to try this recipe on Friday. I just found it. How critical is it to roast the oats and how long do they need to sit before I try and brew with them so I don't pickup any funky tastes/smells?

i brewed this one and cut back the cocoa to 5oz, and added 1 cup of espresso ground coffee. it turned out alright, but i needed to roast the grains longer, it turned out to be closer to a chocolate brown than a stout. my celiac friend loved it, but she isnt a much of a beer drinker for obvious reasons.

I didn't roast my oats on the last go around if that means anything to you?

Euripaetus- it seems that no matter how long I roast my grains- unless I am going to mash them to get my wort, the color just isn't going to be like a stout.

Ok, thanks Lcasanova. I roasted them last night. How long and at what temp did you mash them at?

how much water are you using in this recipe? standard here is 23 liter total, not sure if it's the same in the USA.

This was a partial boil that was diluted up to 5 gallons.

I'm brand new to GF brewing, but I made the non-GF version of this beer and liked it, so I made this batch for my girlfriend who is gluten intolerant. Since it was the first batch, I scaled backed to 1 gallon to experiment. I brewed my first batch in late September (I don't have my brew book with me - but it was around 9/28). I forgot the chocolate, so I decided against the vanilla bean as well. I also had to use Lactose because I the home brew mart here didn't have maltodextirne. I racked to secondary after 2 weeks, then to bottles 2 weeks after. I cracked the first one today and it was great!

First tastes were good, but the aftertaste was fairly bitter. There was little to no head on the beer which I was curious about since most of the comments said the chocolate would be what killed the head. I'm going to try this beer again and scale back the hops slightly, actually add the chocolate and perhaps throw some coffee in the mix. But really I want to figure out why there's no head - anything I can do?
