Briess Chocolate Malt
Thomas Fawcett Pale Chocolate Malt
Briess Caramel Malt 60L
Bairds Medium Crystal Malt

I'm also going to have to use GWM Northwest Pale Ale Malt in place of Maris Otter, not sure if that will change the above recommendation.

Which combination would you recommend? I'm not planning to use all of them, but I ordered a few pounds of each so I would have the option of choosing.

Thanks!
I would go with the Baird's crystal and the Briess chocolate. If you can get an English chocolate (not pale), use that. You might add 10% more chocolate to get closer to the color of the original...Briess chocolate is obnoxiously light.
I like English specialty malts quite a bit more than Briess, across the board.

I see no problem with the base malt swap.

Thanks for your reply. I did exactly your recommendation. I'm excited to see how this one turns out!

This is awesome.

Almost a month old here. I did force carb some 2 liters at 12 days....i think those tasted a little better, nice and "fruity". The chocolate seems to come out a little more now. Delicious.

I never topped off with water, so this is a little stronger.
OG 1.046
FG 1.009

I just tried this one. Can't wait to see how it turns out. Ended up at 1.042 OG and 24 IBUs. Hope I taste the Notty at that gravity. I'll definitely try again to try and hit the lower gravity.

Thanks for the recipe Orfy.

Reason: impatience

I got all the ingredients for this brew last week but won’t be able to brew until tomorrow (12/21.). I was hoping to have it ready for my new years party. Do you think the beer will be drinkable in 10 days?

Yes, that's what OP says.

Drinkable yes. At it's best? probably not.
It'd be a shame to kill the keg at day ten but if you have no alternativr then it's not a bad option.

Some comercial micro brewers are sending beers out at day five but then they are cellar conditioned for up to a week.

Thanks. I'll try kegging it early and see what happens.

I think this beer might be my 2012 MVP. It's cheap, fast, easy, and boy does it taste good.
It's flavorful, yet refreshing.
