Nice! Yeah, I like walking out of the LHBS with a bag with over 20# of grain it in for a 5g batch. Makes me feel like I know what I'm doing when people gawk. Little do they know!

Haha! I said screw bags. I got a bucket to seal grains airtight and easier to pour into mash. Especially stirring in grains and holding bags with one arm don't want my 20# grains missing the mark

pulled gallon of my nothing fancy so I could bottle it and I have to say I added about a qtr oz of french oak chips and it is hella good wow it's amazing at bottling time. I can't wait to get it in my keg however that will not be oaked. Definitely good regardless!

Running down to the LHBS after work tomorrow to pick up the ingredients for this. Need to make sure I have everything on hand so I can brew during the hurricane

Well the brew went good. Only problem (if you want to call it a problem) is that I got 85% efficiency. I average 72% normally. So I ended up with a OG of 1.072! Closer to a double chocolate stout I guess. I added 1/2 lb of cocoa powder to the boil as well. Pitched rehydrated s04 over 24 hours ago and I still have no activity. It is sitting at 60 degrees so that could explain the sluggish start.

Anyone that brewed this recipe with cocoa powder. Did you notice a strange fermentation? This is my first stout and first time using cocoa powder. The beer seems to be slowly fermenting but there it absolutely no krausen! It's the strangest thing I have ever seen.
