Oh boy! Can't wait. I'm going to make a holiday beer. I was thinking of using
this recipe as base or Baltic Porter from Sept/Oct Zymurgy mag. I'm planning on changing C120 to Special B and adding .75 or 1 Lb of Vienna, 1lb cane sugar, 1 tsp each allspice,nutmeg & cinnamon. Topping it off with a 2oz coffee toddy. For Hops I was thinking of 1oz No. Brewer-60, 1oz Fuggles-45, 1oz Styrian Golding's-15. Does that sound like It'll work?

Why not? I feel like it may be a little hoppy, but go for it.

Mine could be tasted now. I should pop a couple in the fridge and try them. Darn cold will not be good for tasting though.

I just purchased a Milk Stout Brewers best kit (5 gallon extract). What product would I need to add to make it a chocolate stout and how much to use ?........

Yeah. Went home for lunch and completely forgot to put some in the fridge. Just a small sample of how forgetful I am. I ate 2 hotdogs not 3 feet from the fridge and beer.

At least I finally remembered to bring that SS tube to work to bend for my BK pickup tube. So all I need do now is to remember to stop out at the bending machine before I leave and put a small bend on it...

I'd read a few recipes for chocolate stout. Recipes vary, but I did an 8 ounce can of cocoa late in the boil and then dry hopped on cocoa nibs.

I imagine people go from subtle chocolate to Hershey stout and everything in between.

I also added some lactose to up the sweetness just a bit for the wife. I bet the kit you bought has some of that in it.

Oh shizzel. Ejay I got to LHBS and forgot my shopping list. Smh luckily I had access to this thread so basically just following original recipe other than swapping out c120 for special B and pacman yeast. Trying a pumpkin porter taste like @#$%* but kinda wavering a bit on pumpkin stout. I also plan to use fuggles and maybe leftover northern brewer. Brown sugar and spices are all lined out but on fence about using them at this point.
