That's quite a bit information and opinions to digest. After carefully considering all the input, I have decided on this recipe. It's still preliminary, so it's still open to modifications if any are deemed necessary.

Type: Extract with specialty grains
Volume: 5 gallons
Target OG: 1.046
Target FG: 1.011
IBU: 21.4
SRM: 37.5
ABV: 4.5%

Specialty Grains:
1 lb Chocolate Malt
.5 lb Roasted Barley

Extracts:
5 lbs Light DME (2 lbs beginning of boil, 3 lbs @ 15 mins)

Misc.:
.5 lb Molasses
12 oz maltodextrine
Both at 15 minutes left in boil

Hops:
.75 oz Mt. Hood @ 60 minutes (the extra .25 oz is to keep IBUs in style)

Yeast:
Wyeast American Ale 1056
Keeping the 1056 because both the Whitbread and London III produce fruity notes, which I don't want to interrupt the cookie aroma/flavor.

Fermentation:
8 days in primary. Rack onto 2 oz cocoa powder (boiled with priming sugar) and 2 chopped/vodka soaked vanilla beans. Secondary for 7-10 days.

Why do you say that? If you mean it's too complicated, I say nay. This will only be my eighth brew and I've been designing my own recipes since my second brew. At this point, though, I still need to consult the good folks here at HBT to make sure my recipe is on track, but designing my own recipes has been a lot easier than I thought it would be when I started brewing.

Good point, it's really not any different than what I've been doing. Guess I'm just wary to start "playing" with recipes.

Well, no matter what, keep me posted -- "cookie beers" are one of my interests, along with nut beers, mint beers, carrot beers.

In the meantime, I offer you this:

"C is for COOKIE, MF'er. Give me cookie. I means it. You don't wanna see what happens if you no give cookie."

Haha, that's hilarious. Reminds me of the Family Guy episode where Cookie Monster is in the nut house for his cookie addiction.

I will definitely keep you posted. I am very excited about this brew. Unfortunately I have to wait til next weekend to brew it. Way too busy this weekend.

I think what you meant is this:

When ready to bottle, rack to bottling bucket with 2 oz cocoa powder (boiled with priming sugar).
The original way would ferment out your priming sugar... Flat beer.

D'oh. You are correct. I meant it the way you said it.

When originally designing the recipe, I thought about using biscuit malt, but was worried that the flavor would turn out more biscuit-like rather than cookie-like. I don't have any experience with biscuit malt, so I don't know what to expect if I do use it. Is your recommendation based off personal experience?
