Hey everyone,

I just threw this recipe together based on the stuff listed on Brooklyn Brewery's website for their Black Chocolate Stout. I searched around with a few results where people had looked, but no real recipes with feedback. I don't know of a yeast that attenuates from 21.7 plato (1.090) to 1.016 to acheive the 10% ABV. I'm hoping the brewinary geniuses of this forum would be able to assist. Here goes nothin':

Didn't end up brewing it. Figured I would just let it go. No feedback and I'm no pro.

That & way to much crystal as well. You want to keep all your specialty malts at or below 15% of the total grain bill.

So Brooklyns black chocolate stout is on of my favorites... when would I add the chocolate and how could I do this at an extract and grain steeping level...

Bottled- Scottish ale
Secondary- Strawberry blonde ale
Primary-Perves cider (11.2%)

I don't have a good recipe, but the beer doesn't contain any actual chocolate.

For what it's worth, they also don't sparge when they brew this stuff.

sorry to revive a very old thread, but I love this beer and am about to brew my own similar version...

previous poster - that isn't the recipe, looking at their website and list of ingredients...

http://brooklynbrewery.com/brooklyn-...hocolate-stout

IBU is 51
ABV is 10%

Willamette and American Fuggle

the book "Beer Captured" has the following for Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout - which you could adjust to 51 IBU and use the right hops (above), plus up the percentages across the board to get to 10% ABV - He suggests mashing at 152 for 90 minutes - which I'd agree with to get the yeast to get to 10%

OG: 1.089
FG: 1.022
SRM: 100+
IBU: 47
ABV: 8.4%

14lb British 2-row
1lb US Wheat malt
15oz British chocolate malt
7oz British roasted barley
4oz flaked wheat
3oz British black patent malt
(90 minute mash @ 152F)

2.5oz EKG @ 90 minutes
0.5oz EKG @ 15 minutes
0.5oz Cascade @ 15 minutes
0.5oz Willamette @ 5 minutes
0.5oz Cascade @ 5 minutes

Yeast: 1056 or 1028 - but personally I plan to use 1726 and ferment around 65 - it will handle the high alcohol and will end up fairly clean with some plum and dark fruit esters.
