Does any flavouring from the soft brown sugar come through?

That was the reason I asked (stoutiness) I am planning a stout for this week and have been thinking of adding molasses just to get that hint of licorice, the soft brown sugar smells like molasses and I did try the licorice chips once but over did it. Also did you cold steep the chocolate and black grain?

Go steady with Molasses or black treacle,easy to overdo it.
I did a partial mash,so mashed all the grains together. I assume you are using extract or doing a kit?.You can steep your speciality grains for 30 minutes in water at 66c .

No not a kit, but have been reading that the specialty grains steeped in cold water for 24 hours then the liquid added at the sparge eliminates the tannins and harshness which the speciality grains produce. In the past I have done the warm 20 minute steep so will be giving the cold steep a go. Will just add a small amount of molasses then and work up if needed.

Ok,never tried cold steeping and in truth don't think i would bother.A 30 min steep,if doing extract works for me everytime.
Each to his/her own however
