You mean other than the one that is quoted 3 posts above yours, as well as several other versions at the beginning of this thread?

Hey Revvy,

If you read this, did you end up going with the lactose? I'm using a slightly tweaked version of Kris' recipe, fermenting right now, and will be adding lactose, burnt sugar, and a couple pounds of toasted coconut, before getting racked to a used rum barrel for some rum flavor and (hopefully) a very subtle touch of oak, and I'm wondering what you think about the lactose - was planning to add a half pound.

Well, it's been a while. Any new info? Did it mellow into perfection? Try any other recipes?

I'm also in the Detroitish area. Where did you get some of this stuff?

Thanks for having the only decent drive on this beer on the entire internet.

Trying my hand at this beer has been on my To Do List ever since Revvy started this thread. It is amazing that it has been one of my next beers all this time. I picked up some jaggery and kithul treacle today. I was excited to see where the treacle is from.

Reviving this thread because my homebrew club is having quarterly competitions on some of the new styles in the 2015 BJCP style guide and the next style we have chosen is tropical stout. And BYO now has Kristen England's Dragon Stout recipe on their website (buried in his article on using debittered black malt) and this thread is frankly the most useful thing on the internets about tropical stout so I thought I would help close the loop:
https://byo.com/stories/issue/item/1...red-black-malt

I'm not sure I will even like the beer, but I am thinking I will set aside one gallon of the beer for the competition and turn the rest of the batch into a mole stout, as tropical stout seems to be the perfect base for that style of beer.

Witherby, did you brew the Dragon Stout clone? I plan on brewing a tropical stout some time soon and, apparently like quite a few others, I'm having some difficulty finding a tested recipe.

It looks like More Beer, Williams Brewing, and Midwest Supplies all carry a product they refer to as "sinimar".

I finally brewed it just last week, so it isn't a tested recipe yet. Here is what I went with for a 3 gallon batch:

7 lb Pale 2-Row (UK)
8 oz Crystal 80L (US)
8 oz De-Bittered Black (BE)
8 oz Flaked Oats
1 lb Piloncillo (Panela) sugar (Boil)
5 oz Lactose (Boil)

0.6 oz Magnum (US) 60 min Boil

English Ale Yeast White Labs WLP002

Kris England said that his recipe often ends up drying out too much, and with all of that sugar in my recipe that was a risk, so my plan was to mash high, add lactose, and use a yeast that isn't super attenuative. It sure smells good!
