a friend is gonna give me a stout kit he has extra, any one know how i could convert it to a chocolate milk stout? i don't know the recipe yet, but in general, is there an amount of lactose and chocolate nibs or cocoa powder to add after break or after fermentation to convert it from a regular stout recipe?

I used 1 lb lactose & 8 oz baker's chocolate late in the boil for my chocolate peanut butter stout. It gave it a slight bitter dark chocolate flavor.

Next time I use chocolate I'm gonna try racking on the nibs or powder in my secondary to get more sweet chocolaty flavor...probably about the same amount of chocolate.

Get some chocolate extract & add some at bottling if you don't have enough chocolate flavor from whichever method you choose.
