Just got done brewing this beer followed to a tee except added 1 lb. rice hulls. This is going to be a pretty big beer got a OG of 1.067. Now to figure out what coffee I want to use might let my wife decide that since I brewed it on her request.

Brewed this tonight with a few changes. Only had fuggles on hand so I used that instead. Also, I plan on steeping nibs in vodka to add the chocolate at bottling. Didn't have any lactose either so I am hoping I can boil it in a few cups of water and add to the primary. Any input on that?

I would take some of the already fermenting wort and boil that with lactose. I'm not sure how your going to add the nibs att bottling time? They are added at the last 5 days or so to the already fermenting wort in a straining bag to pull the flavor from the nibs.

Yeah, I was going to soak the nibs in vodka for a few days to extract the flavor and then add the chocolate flavored vodka to taste.

I made a Stout based of this recipe, but with a few substitutions (list below if you care). The most noticeable was using Hazelnut flavoured coffee - I used about 6 oz, cold steeped in water for about a week. This produced 350ml of liquid coffee which I added at bottling. It smelled AWESOME going in. It's been in bottle for almost two weeks and I tried some the other day. A little to strong on the coffee, but I think that will drop away with some age.

Thanks for posting this base recipe!

Quick question - how would I back down the bitterness on this recipe? My wife wants a chocolate-coffee stout, and this looks like just the thing, but she doesn't want it too bitter. She's not a big beer drinker, and definitely not a hop head, but she tried a brew something like this at a brewery in Asheville, NC, and loved it. Since I started brewing this year, she's been after me to brew something like the on she had in Asheville.

You could use less bittering hops ( though that's probably not the bitter you mean), use less chocolate/roasted barley or you could use lactose and/or vanilla beans to sweeten it.

I went with the third option. Turned out well.

I think I aimed for 2.1 or so. Try using DME for priming, works great IMO.
