I brewed 2 batches of this just the other day and was very pleased with the look of everything so far. The question I had was, have any of you guys had Southern Tier's "Choklat" Stout? An excellent beer but maybe a bit too much chocolate for my taste. As the original poster stated, the recipe may need to scale back on the chocolate to make it a bit more subtle. Thought I'd ask if anyone has had that beer AND brewed this beer to give me a heads up.
My feeling is that I will do each batch a different way using varying amounts of chocolate and coffee in each to see what I like better. Thanks!!

I like ST Choklat and brewed this beer last year. They are completely different animals though. This came out a lot crisper / smoother whereas ST Choklat is a bit heavy / boozy. Chocolate is evident in both, but I don't think that it is overpowering at all in this recipe.

I am looking at making a 10 gallon batch of this but cannot get the BeerSmith recipe to come up. I use BeerSmith and am a registered user there but even searches there cannot find it. I can probably rebuild it then scale it, but would really appreciate an importable copy of the recipe. I am planning on doing this as my second batch in my new BrewTroller semi-automated brew system (Blichmann 20 gallon pots and 14 gallon conical fermenter).
Thanks in advance, this recipe looks very interesting.
Mike

So I didn't add the Lactose during the boil. I've had this brew aging for a few months now. I'm just now getting around to transferring it to a secondary to add vanilla bean and chocolate. What should I do with the Lactose now, just leave it out? When I read the recipe I assumed it was to be added for your carbonating sugar at bottling. I could add it into the secondary but would I need to add more yeast, since the yeast cake will be pitched when I make the switch to the secondary?

Thanks in advance for the responses!

I would bet you could go ahead and add the lactose into the secondary. Lactose is a non fermentable sugar so the yeast is not a concern. It should add a little body to the beer and some sweetness.

Excellent, thank you! That's what I will do.

sub'd, not sure when i'll get around to this one but I'm leaning toward more and more stouts and porters lately.
