Yeah that looks about right. Let it sit for a while longer to settle, though. How long has it been fermenting? A week?

Yes a week today, I was going to add the peppermint leaves the last few days into the 14 day fermentation. I never brewed a stout and an extremely anxious about this one. Thanks for the input I really appreciate it.

Has anybody used Dutch processed coco powder? I'm wondering if that would cut some if the bitterness?

I haven't used that before but the bitterness comes from the unsweetened coco powder, coco Is actually bitter naturally, same goes with coco nibs. So if your Dutch processed coco powder is less or not bitter then yes I will help.

You will love it. Just drank my last bottle on Sunday. I'm fermenter tight with a dunkelweizen and an oatmeal stout right now though so I won't be able to restock this one for a few more weeks.

Oh man, it is so good, too! Saw them in Cambridge last month and they haven't missed a beat. http://hate5six.com/player.php?album=2572427
