    Default MooHoo Milk Chocolate Stout clone

    This one turned out really good, so posting it here. As an update, this won a 1st place in the Peach State Brewoff in Atlanta. Really pleased with this beer and one to make again in the future.

    Brewer: Christo
    Beer: Moohoo Chocolate Milk Stout
    Style: Sweet Stout
    Type: All grain
    Size: 5.5 gallons
    Color: 138 HCU (~44 SRM)
    Bitterness: 29 IBU
    OG: 1.066
    FG: 1.016
    Alcohol: 6.4% v/v (5.0% w/w)
    Water: Savannah Tap - similar to Munich.

    Grain:
    9 lb. American 2-row
    .75 lb. British crystal 70-80L
    .5 lb. American chocolate
    .5 lb. Carafa Special III
    .5 lb. Roasted barley
    1 lb. Flaked oats

    Mash: 75% efficiency
    152F for 75 minutes.

    Boil: 60 minutes SG 1.055 6.5 gallons
    1 lb. Lactose
    SuperMoss @ 10 minutes. Lactose and cocoa nibs added at 15 minutes.

    Hops:
    .45 oz. Nugget (11.3% AA, 60 min.)
    1 oz. Willamette (4.8% AA, 30 min.)

    Yeast: S-04

    Log: Actual OG was 1.070. 14 days primary @ 68-70F (SG 1.024). 14 days secondary @ room temps (around 75F) (FG 1.021).

    Carbonation: 2.4 volumes Keg: 13.7 psi @ 45°F
    Kegged. med-high carbonation.

    Tasting: Alcohol nose is quite evident at racking to keg though after a month it had blended nicely. Big chocolate in the aroma with lower coffee notes. Creamy quality comes out in the flavor, melding with the aroma characteristics. The final gravity was higher than planned at 1.021 but it is not overly sweet (roast and alcohol seem to balance nicely) or overly thick. Can't think of any changes I want to make to it.

    4 oz. is good. They actually add chocolate to it as well, though I didn't.

    I brew this one every year - it's already on the calendar for the first week in December. Can't wait.
