Will you brew this?

Yes, I'm going to brew this recipe exactly as it was designed by the group.
Yes, but I'm going to make some changes to it to fit my tastes.
Yes, but not right away, as I have too many other brews planned at this time.
Maybe, but I'm undecided.

No,  I don't like the recipe, so I won't be brewing it.

Scott, thanks for setting this up, it's been interesting and I've learned a few things. I will brew this in a few weeks once I've freed up a fermentor and a keg.

I agree with cmbrougham in that it doesn't feel right, however, I've brewed a few beers that feel right but taste wrong so maybe this will taste great.

Once you've all brewed it let us know what it turns out like.

You're welcome...

sorry to have jumped in late...been brewing and not foruming lately.
What is the final recipe? If I can get all the ingredients, I will put it together and take it to my club meeting when I am done. There are some good tasters there, so I can report "man off the street" reactions.

Brewing this weekend.

 Looking forward to using a large quantity of Brown malt for the first time. I'm having a hard time picturing how this will effect flavor.

 That pound of pale chocolate is gonna lend quite a bit of flavor.


Also using WLP023 for the first time.

Report back in a month or two.

Fantastic!  I'm looking forward to the results everyone achieves.  My schedule is just plain crazy lately.  I'm traveling during the week for the next month or so, with only weekends to to brew.  It's difficult to monitor fermentation temps when I'm out of town, so I usually hold off on brewing.  Also, I have to go to Indonesia and Singapore on business in early June and will be there at least three weeks. 

I'm not sure when I'll get this brewed, but I'll find a way to slip it into the rotation.

Who's brewed this so far?

I wonder what would happen if we retried this experiment on homebrewtalk.com or another forum. Could be fun to get even more brewer's knowledge on something like this.

I did brew it. Exact. I think it's a good idea and would do it again. Though perhaps with people who actually plan on brewing it would be 2x the fun. Maybe even a bottle share.

Same with me, but I have to fit it into the rotation.  I'm brewing a Stout on April 13th.  I'm not brewing on the April the 12th, because my wife and I are going to Gilgamesh Brewing in Salem, Oregon for a brewing competition.  I have two beers entered in it.  Maybe you and I can brew it in May.  What's your best weekend in May to brew this up?

well, as you can see...old day late and dollar short here...Couple of questions;
Did we determine a water profile, or should we use our own?
The Munich, is that 10 02 20 L?
Could not find "pale" chocolate.
Hopiing to put the order in for the bill this week.
I put it inoto a blank recipe on a Robust Porter and the scales were all off the charts.

billy brew. I'm using London water, my Munich is what they call light, I think that its 10L. I have pale choc but I think you could use reg choc say L 350 just use less. anyways that is what I would do.
It's funny, I'm planning to mill up the grains for this latter to night or tomorrow , so don't think your that late, I'm running behind myself.
  As far as the charts go, the abv will be high but all the other numbers should be in line with R Porter.

just to let everyone know my brew day went good with this recipe and it is fermenting away on day 2 now. Ended up with 1.069 OG and it's @ 64 for temp. the notty yeast I used started slow, took 24 hr to kick in. hope that's not an indication that I under pitched. could be the temp when I pitched but it's rolling now so I'll check in when it hit FG.

Just wanted to share my thoughts on this brew mainly from a flavor perspective (mainly because I don't have a firm understanding of categorized beer styles).

First off let me sing some praise for the Burton ale yeast. When I first tasted the starter I made I nearly dumped it because I thought it could be infected, but a quick Google search showed that this is high acetaldehyde yeast. It has a massive fruit taste that just totally completes this beer.

The second thing you notice with this beer is a high degree of roast. This combines with the high fruit from the yeast and just absolutely wows you with flavor. It's not dominant in chocolate or roasted barley or even the ton of brown malt, just a perfect combination of the three that also blends perfectly with the yeast. The alcohol also seems to blend in at a perfect level as well.

I can't comment on the hop level because I can't pick them out of beers other than massive IIPA style, but they certainly don't detract from the recipe at all.

This is actually one of the rare brews where I don't have any comments on what I would change for the next time brewing. The closest thing I could use to describe the overall flavor would be "a spot on clone for Guiness Foreign Extra Stout".
