Not sure if the hop schedule fits the overall goal.  I'm guessing that you are going for a smooth, slightly sweet, full mouthfeel.  I would look at a small bittering addition with something clean and drop the rest of the hops.  YMMV

Personally, I would decrease the amount of chocolate malt and increase the flaked oats. I would also just do a bittering hop addition and nothing else but that's just me....

+1.  Made a great Milk Stout a couple years ago using only a modest 60 minute addition. An underrated style.

I should have stated up front about me strategy with the hops.  I chose Millenium because of the flavor profile, even though the AA% is so high... which is also why I chose First Wort hopping to minimize taste bitterness.

This is the source of the hop flavor/aroma target, and why I chose big late additions:


I am still open to being told I'm still wrong on the hops issue, I just wanted to show my thinking.  Thanks again.

+1 - I think the late hops will either clash or just get muddled in with everything else you have going on here. Either leave it at FWH for a little hop character or move everything to a traditional bittering addition.

If you're really set on seeing how the Millenium works with the roasted malts, then I'd retool this as a robust porter - starting by stripping out the lactose and oats.

Muddled I don't want.  I repent.  I'll drop the Millenium in favor of Fuggles.  I also dropped the Choc. Malt to 1 lb, and raised the oats to 1 lb.

Thanks!  I'm off to the LHBS... Which by the way is a new one in Yakima, but they have had a web presence for some time (http://www.yakimavalleyhops.com/default.asp).  Good guys.  A couple of 20 somethings just jumping into the business world and doing a good job of it.  No, I am not connected in any way but as a customer.

You're lucky to have them as your LHBS. They run a great web business and I wish them all the best with their new brick-and-mortar store. Excellent prices and service.

I haven't brewed a breakfast or coffee stout yet but I have brewed Irish, American and Oatmeal Stouts as Stout is one of my favorite styles.  The recipe looks good.  With Irish and Oatmeal styles I usually go with Fuggles or EKG.  I've never put more than a pound of chocolate malt in but with everything else in the recipe I might try that.  IF I were to change anything I would boost the oats to a pound and maybe use WY1056 or WLP001.  Also, JZ says if you want a more intense oat flavor lightly brown the oats in an oven on a cookie sheet at 300F but the oats are mainly there to add smoothness.  Looks like a good recipe, I hope it works out!
