Bottled this morning, 5.55 gallons --> 55 bottles. Tasted great, chocolate malt nose, bitter sweet malty chocolate stout flavor with the tiniest peanut-butter after glow.

Added back 3g of rehydrated dry yeast (after being in secondary for over a month with a higher ABV, I chose to not risk having too little yeast for priming) to 4.3oz corn sugar. Finished at 7.8% ABV after accounting for the vodka I added to the PB2 and Cocoa powder.

Can't wait to taste it carb'd up and conditioned a bit more.

So this brew sits on the powdered pb and coco powder for only 10 days?

Has anybody kept it on those ingredients longer?

I kept it on the cocoa and pb for at least 2 weeks. I gently stirred it when I first racked it on top of the ingredients in the secondary. No problems keeping it on them longer that I know of.

Kept mine on the PB2 and cacao nibs/cocoa powder for about a month. We just bottled it monday, so I tasted it uncarbed, but it was super smooth.

I've only brewed 2 beers so far, and wanted to try a Stout for my next one, and this sounds amazing! I have a couple questions though, if you guys dont mind helping a total noob out! I have not done All Grain brewing, and don't think i'm quite ready to try it yet. So, what would you recommend i use for either a DME or LME? Would the DME or LME only replace the Domestic 2 Row, and i'd still be mashing the oats, chocolate, carapils, caramel, and barley? I'm a total novice when it comes to brewing right now, but i've tried reading lots of threads and the "how to brew" website, yet I still don't quite understand some of the processes! Thanks for any info.

Wow. Just wow. This turned out so thick and delicious. My wife is over the moon on this recipe (and so am I!).

Super chocolate and pb nose, very malty chocolate taste and pb aftertaste. Nice frothy light brown head. This is a keeper!

Very nice! Mine has been setting for a few months turned out great. I ended with a lot of oil so the head is mild but still tastes amazing!
