I just tasted a sample of this after almost 3 weeks, and it is awesome already. The chocolate is really standing out now. Last week I couldn't even notice it.

I'm not sure what the equivalent would be to s-33, but the s-33 made this delicious. My only problem is that my fermentation got stuck at 1.036. I had to make a starter of some Wyeast London ESB I had laying around to kick start it again.

I just brewed this and everything was great until I ran the wort through my plate chiller....looks like a lot of sediment (prob from cocoa and lactose). It was clogging my strainer inside my boil kettle. I had to use a wooden spoon to scrape it away. It took forever to get it into my primary. Once in there I noticed a LOT of the sediment in the bottom of the primary. I don't think that is normal when I hadn't even added the yeast yet but this is my first milk stout. Can anyone tell me if this is normal? I was tempted to siphon it into my other carboy before starting the primary fermentation period. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Made this beer last month and it turned out really well! I didnt let it sit in the primary fermentor for 3 weeks, I moved it after 2 weeks, fermentation finished basically in 2 days and it was explosive. blocked my air locks multiple times and I had to baby sit them for a day until the aggressive fermentation settled to something my airlocks could manage. Yes recommend running a blowoff tube.

I enjoy the flavor, it is a heavy strong beer. My OG was 1.080 and the FG was about 1.030. ~ 7.5% abv. I made a 10 gal batch and I have to break up the mash into two separate mashes, I only had 10 gal mashtun and the amount of grains this thing took was more than the mashtun could handle *o*.

Pics of the life of this beer posted. Enjoy.

I brewed this recipe yesterday and I smells wonderful. But when he said to use a blow off tube, he wasn't kidding!! I woke up today to a LOUD bubbling/rumbling sound. This is the most active fermentation ive ever had. I used a blow off tube into a growler and that wasn't even enough. Beer everywhere.

Moral of the story, use a giant bucket for blow off.
