Default Calling sweet chocolate stout lovers!!

Hey guys...just thinking about brewing a sweet chocolate stout this weekend...do you guys have any preferences when making sweet stouts??

This is my first one and I am not sure exactly how to shape the recipe!
Here is just a rough outline...

7# 2 Row
2# Carapils
(1# Belgian Biscuit) OR (2# flaked Wheat)
1# Caramel 30L
1# Caramel 60L
1# British Chocolate
1# Lactose

0.75oz - 1oz Cascade @ 60 min

I kind of took it off a clone recipe from widmere's sweet stout

I just finished one, still needs some more aging, but so far so good:

6# light DME
1# Chocolate malt
.5# Roasted barley
1oz pearle (60 min)
.5oz williamette (5 min)
1/4# lactose

Also I added about a 1/4 cup of unsweetened Hershey's cocoa powder.
I don't think all my lactose dissolved right, so it isn't overly sweet. Nice mouthfeel, great chocolate aftertaste, with coffee notes as well.

i would suggest adding the lactose at boiling if you're kegging.

mine was good for the first few glasses, then the next day all the lactose blew off with the first bit of foam. everyone liked it at the party, but i really think it could have been MUCH sweeter. it sure was chocolatey

Try my Dark Owl Sweet Stout. It's the best stout I've Ever had. You can add some more chocolate, but I would try it as is then adjust as needed

Default Chocolate malt 410L

how much chocolate malt is too much before it starts to get overly roasty or astringent. I modified the current recipe as follows

5# Rhar 2-Row
2# Belgian Carapils
2# Flaked wheat
2# American Caramel 60L
0.75# British Chocolate 410L
1# Lactose
0.25# Bakers Chocolate

0.75oz Northern Brewer 8.3%aa @ 60min

I would add at least .5lb of Roasted Barley to it for a stout and like DeathBrewer says add the lactose toward the end of the boil.
