Looking for a different stout recipe

Looking for a good Stout recipe. Something different. Im a big fan of dark beers stouts porter dunkels Maybe recipes using pilsner extract, dme. maybe a sweet coffee oatmeal cream chocolate stout. Something to wow these coming winter days

I’d check out Jamil’s foreign extra stout from Brewing Classic Styles. You’re getting pretty close to winter, so if you brewed an RIS, it would probably be better waiting to drink it until next year.

Or, try one of our sponsor’s kits. Based on “sweet coffee oatmeal cream chocolate stout”, I might suggest Dry Dock’s vanilla porter, NB’s brunch stout, NB’s choc milk stout, or NB’s rye stout.

I bet NB’s chocolate milk stout would be good. I did a Left Hand Milk Stout clone last winter that turned out great. Also, Don Osborn’s “Can’t Stop Coffee Stout” has been a winner for me.

I recently brewed a clone of founders breakfast stout. It’s pretty good but I will reduce the amount of coffee I add at bottling next time around.

Maybe a schwarzbier? Dark pils sorta.

I am a huge fan of black beers and am constantly tweaking in search of the perfect (for me) recipe. My last Black Ale really turned out nice. It’s not too bitter, not too roasty. FWIW, here’s the recipe:

4.5 lbs 2-row
4.5 lbs Marris Otter
0.25 lb debittered black patent
0.50 lb Caramunich
0.125 lb roasted barley
2 ounce hallertauer at 60
1 packet Safale US-05
60 minute mash at 150F

It’s a beautiful black beer with espresso brown head. Very smooth.

You ever try using Midnight Wheat malt or Blackprinz malt from Breiss? Only limited experience, but both beers I have made with them are excellent. Slightly roasty but not acrid/ashlike in the least.

This is an Old Rasputin clone I recently brewed and it’s awesome.

I’ve not used either. My LHBS does not carry either but they could probably get some for me. I will look into more.

cheers

Edit: or just order some from our hosts.
