any hints when brewing?

I had my first youngs double chocolate stout last week and can't believe I found a clone recipe this week. Any hints when brewing? I assume kegging with nitrogen would make it even better.


very nice stout

I was unable to find the essence of cacao so I had to substitute a liquid chocolate flavoring at kegging. While this made it not as good as the Young's I had on tap at a local extablishment, it was very comparable to the Young's I had out of the can last month.

I won several medals with this beer, and also when I blended it with a tart cherry stout I brewed around the same time.
