Just wanted to say this beer is delicious. I made this around November and I can't get enough of it. Thanks!

Those that have done this recipe what was your OG and/or Pre Boil Gravity? I got nothing close to the 1.097 listed on the first post.

I brewed up a batch yesterday. When plugged into beersmith the estimated OG not counting the unknown of the added Graham Crackers is 1.061. I actually hit an OG of 1.072 showing that the crackers added somewhere around 10 points if my efficiencies and volumes were all correct.

I may have mashed a little on the low side but the sparge/lauter went well and I seemed to have good extraction. I added my brown sugar with a few minutes left in the boil rather than after the wort was cooled and in the carboy. I put just over 7 gallons into the boil kettle and ended up with just at 5 gallons in the carboy after chilling. It is currently sitting on some US-04 at 66 degrees in the ferm chamber.

When I brewed this a couple months bag, I used the exact grain bill posted and got an OG of 1.071 with estimated 78% efficiency.

I brewed this early last month doing a partial mash. It came out delicious and around 5-something%. Downsized to 3lbs marris otter and 3lbs extract. Even my f-i-l appreciated it despite the fact that "it's not real beer".
Disappearing quickly!
Next time I'll definitely add more extract though...

Has anyone tried this recipe subbing the bakers chocolate for Hershey's unsweetened dark powered cocoa in the boil? I've got a little over 4 oz of that sitting around and wondering if there's a reason not to use this? Thanks for sharing this recipe, ill be doing this brew over the weekend.

That will work just fine....the key is unsweetened, the brand is irrelevant.
