I'm planning on adding the cherry juice and cocoa powder to the secondary. Fancy coconut extract will be added at bottling to half of the batch, so the other half will be cherry chocolate milk stout.

This is my first brew ever. Any suggestions are appreciated.

This seems like it has a lot of variables for your first beer. I know its all exciting, but I would suggest something a bit less complex for your first brew.

Nah.

I can do it.

What about the recipe? I may reduce the quantity of some of the ingredients a little.

The other wacky flavor combos I considered for a coconut milk stout:

- chocolate, almond, coconut (almond joy milk stout)

- tamarind, chili pepper, coconut (Thai milk stout)

I'll probably make them someday.

I brewed this today. My first brew day went well. No catastrophes.

OG 1.075

I used 6oz of cocoa instead of 8oz and put it in the boil at the end.

My plate chiller put the boiled wart into the fermenter at 64 degrees in less than 10 minutes.

I tasted the cooled wort. Interesting to taste but very rough. Does non fermented stout wort ever taste good?

It took almost exactly 24 hours to start bubbling.

I used 5 gallons of water. The LME increased the volume to 6 gallons. I intentionally ended up with 4 gallons in the fermenter and will use the cherry juice to get 5 gallons of beer in the secondary.

This recipe sounds nuts but interesting. I haven't brewed a stout but I haven't had any beers taste rough before fermentation.

In that last post, are you saying that you're going to add a gallon of cherry juice to get the volume up to 5 gallons?

I'll use no more than 92oz of pure cherry juice. I may use less.

I'll use a little water to top off to 5 gallons depending on how much juice I use.

So you're not using maraschino cherry juice?

How did you decide on how much cherry juice to add? That just sounds like a lot of juice to me.

edit: oh I see up there where you're not using maraschino cherry juice. Probably a good call

I'm using cherry kool-aid mixed strong.

I figured the recipe should be 10-15% juice. That's about what it would be if I used it all.

I bought two 46oz bottles of cherry juice. That's were the 92oz figure comes from.

How much juice would you add?
