Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: Wyeast 1028 - London Ale   
Yeast Starter: 2000ml   
Batch Size (Gallons): 6   
Original Gravity: 1.059   
Final Gravity: 1.014   
IBU: 62   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 33   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14   
Tasting Notes: Roasted coffee, burnt caramel, some chocolate. Very smooth. Excellent beer!   

The best stout that I've brewed. Absolutely fantastic. I think it's the Special B that makes it, well, special. Fantastic aroma!

Only left in primary for 2 weeks. Then kegged and forced carbonated to 1.8-2 volumes. It was good after 2 days of boosting @ 30psi. FANTASTIC after a week and a half @ proper carbonation level. Looking forward to it in a couple weeks. The "German Dark Wheat Malt" is Briess Midnight Wheat. I had to substitute "Especial" for Special B because my LHBS was out.

All of my beers have wookie-related names.

I get a kick out of them:

Darth Wookie - Imperial Stout
Chewy's Pale Ale - Dale's Pale Ale clone
Chewbacca Defense Ale - CDA (wookie AND South Park reference)
Wookie Light - Cream Ale
Wookie Drool - Moose Drool clone
Chewbacca - Belgian Pale Ale

After a few more weeks on tap, this beer is fantastic. Getting rave reviews all around but is almost gone

Kashyyyk is actually a shortened Wookie word that means "He who loves us and gives us rain to make beer with".

Little known fact.

The last pint was the best. That was a really good beer and barely lasted a month.
