Brewed this in mid december, kegged it about the 7th of jan, and drank most of it by the end of jan.. It was DELICIOUS. I saved a bit of it and I can say that as good as it was "green," it's amazing with proper aging! Thanks again for sharing the recipe, mikeho!

What do you guys think of adding a small portion of Briess cherrywood smoked malt to this to approximate the best part of breakfast - bacon!?

Never tried smoked malt, but you can probably find a few other threads where people have tried this. Sounds like Briess cherrywood is recommended, or someone else said hickory smoked.

Brewing this recipe up again today, wish it was already brewed so I could have a drink right now! This one is going into a keg when ready, but I want to bottle another batch so I can keep it around longer. Too much to brew, not enough time!

Has anybody noticed any head retention problems from having chocolate in the boil? I brewed this last weekend with 2 oz. of bittersweet baking chocolate and was just curious. Gonna put it in secondary (with some cold-brewed coffee) so that less of the separated fat from the chocolate ends up in the bottle. Looking forward to this beer unlike few others that I've brewed...

I could tell a little bit in the head retention of my first batch. It wasn't anything too major but it was noticable. The beer was absolutely fantastic anyways!

I haven't noticed any head retention problems. Here is some more info on different types of chocolate and when to add them.

Thanks for the link—I actually came across that a couple of hours after plugging the airlock into my fermenter, having put 2 oz. of cacao and 2 oz. of bittersweet into the boil.

I may brew this recipe again in a few weeks without putting any cacao/chocolate in the boil, then soaking a few oz. of cacao in vodka and adding that (along with cold pressed coffee) to secondary. Should fix any head retention problems and it'd be interesting to taste side-by-side with the version with chocolate in the boil...

Has anyone brewed this all grain using the recipe provided by byo? I perused this thread and did not see any mention of over shooting the target og. Based on my ibrewmaster calculations the recipe as is with 13.2 lbs of 2-row and all the other grains at 75% efficiency would yield an og of 1.090. I know with big beers lower than usual efficiencies are to be expected but I routinely get 85%+ on my setup so I think that 75% would be reasonable.in order to hit the og listed in the recipe I would have to expect an efficiency of 65% (a 20% drop). My question to those of you that have brewed the all grain option or similar sized grain bills...Did you follow the recipe as listed? What was your og? What is your typical efficiency?

Would not be the first recipe that byo had mistakes in but they have corrected the ones I've noticed and I have found no corrections on this. Thanks for the help!

I hit 1.084 using about 0.5 lb less 2-row, but all the other grains. The byo OG seems to be just a bit off, it is supposed to be 8.3% ABV, not 7.5% like they say.
