I was looking to brew up a stout with orange peels, chocolate, and some lactose in it. I was wondering if there are any good recipes out there right now, or if anybody had any suggestions. Not on AG yet, but am working on it.:drunk:

Not sure about the lactose, but the orange and chocolate sounds...interesting.

I've perfected a chocolate orange stout over the past few years and it is one of my most popular beers. It's brewed as a dry stout so no lactose, and I use fresh orange zest not the dried stuff.

I think that is what I am going to try our for the next brew, won't be for a while because me and the SWHMBD are gettin married in a couple of weeks. But, thanks for the recipe, I think I am going to try it with lactose just to see how it ends up.
