I may, or may not add some maple syrup to this and make it a Canadian BS.

OG was 1.091. I checked gravity last night and am sitting at 1.032, which is 7.74% ABV so far. The US-05 is slowing some, but still chugging along!

I took the gravity sample and poured it into a frozen mug to cool it down, and DAMN is it great. The chocolate is perfect! The coffee is very subtle, but will get 2 cups of cold pressed Kona coffee at secondary along with bourbon and oak!
I can't wait to start drinking this stuff! I believe it will be very close to KBS!

I'm 3 days into primary on this recipe. Tasted great post-boil and it was fun to brew something so dark. Other than my first time brew-buddy dropping a pretzel into the wort while we were chilling, everything went pretty well.

Is .25oz. of oak chips enough for this recipe? I don't want to overdo it, but I recall most recipes calling for 1 - 2 ounces. Anybody care to comment on the right amount of oak?

I used 2 oz of oak, and 6 oz of bourbon. I will know in about 2-3 weeks. I will be kegging this weekend.

Chocolate-covered-pretzel Stout.

I'm racking my plain ole Breakfast Stout onto some whole coffee beans in the next day or two.

Brilliant. We've been trying to think of a clever name for it besides "KBS Clone".

BTW - did anybody else who brewed this keep getting their auto-siphon clogged by those damn cocao nibs? I had a hell of a time transferring from kettle to primary.

I couldnt find the nibs so I used unsweetened bakers chocolate. Made it a lot easier. But I did have a S--- ton of trub after primary was done.
