My LHBS has nibs, so that's where I personally get them. I know AHB just started carrying nibs and cocoa beans, that could be worth looking into.

Is this for 10 gallons? Just looking at it it would be 1.100 roughly for a 5 gal batch

Figured so. I was on my phone looking around, and tossed it in my program and the numbers were like 1.100 for a 5 gal batch. I want a beer that big, but it would be unbalanced at the 40IBU's it calculated.

Sounds good none the less, just smaller than I'm looking for right now.

12.0 oz Chocolate Malt (450.0 SRM)

Although I still stand by extra dark crystal instead of 120.

I wouldn't mind using dark crystal but Brewmasters warehouse doesn't appear to carry it. 120 was the highest they have

What about some special B.
I just racked a gallon of my nothing fancy stout onto some oak chips. The rest will be kegged. I got a white house porter too so I may keg it and let my stout age a bit longer.
