This beer has been on my to do list for quite some time now but can see the light at the end of the tunnel to this guys brew day. Has anyone done this with WLP001? I will be doing a porter in a couple of weeks and was hoping to wash the yeast and use it for this.
Ok, so I'm a couple weeks behind on this, but I'm heating the mash water now. Brewing 11gals.... will split it in half and do one half with cocoa and vanilla, the other half regular stout...although I'm sure this is no "regular" stout
I could murder a pint! -Lovejoy
Made this beer a couple months ago now and just started in to my second keg of it. I haven't tasted it too critically, but I'd say it's a solid oatmeal stout. I don't recall exactly what - if anything - I changed of the original recipe, but I don't think it was much.
