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.

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.
