    I think I may have ruined mine by putting too much cacao nibs in the 4 Mini Kegs :S... Slightly over powering.

    I put some into bottles (without the nibs) and the bottled stout tastes nicer :(

    Well they reckon stout gets better the more months you leave it ! You never know those cacao nibs might blend in later down the line ;-)

    Ok. And that isn’t just because our taste buds get used to the taste lol :).

    Thanks for the encouragement :). I’ll slow down on the drinking then :)

    Hi - had just come to start a similar thread but spotted this one. I don't normally drink stout but had a really nice Camden Ink the other night and had a wilko voucher burning a hole in my pocket.

    Just got the wilko stout and 2 bags of medium dme, was planning doing the lot with 50g of treacle and brewing to 18 litres. Then using around 100g of soft brown sugar for the priming.

    Any tips on the above, or a dry hop to add to replicate Camden Ink? (or is none needed, did a Geordie Yorkshire Bitter the other day, and it is the first I haven't hopped for a while - just brewed short and with brown sugar and treacle, and love it)

    Looked it up - pacific gem and northdown hops - any tips on which or both would be good to dry hop? Don't want to over do it, but would like a bit of kick

    I imagine the recipe your thinking without hops will just give you a nice dry stout that im sure will be very drinkable ! Hops wise i have never had campden ink myself so cant really give any advice on flavours but if it was me i would just bang 25g of each in and see how it goes !!
