yea, but 8 dry ounces is not 8 liquid ounces... It's dependent on the density of what you are measuring. I was just wondering which the measurement was.

Anyhow, How strong is the chocolate. I don't want something very chocolate heavy, and 1 cup seems like it may be a lot.

I can't wait to try it!

The Chocolate on this batch is very suttle to me (however I love some chocolate), Also as a

SIDE NOTE* I looked up in my beer journal ( I know I am a beer queer), and I wrote that I used Godiva cocoa powder- It was very good and creamy. I am sure any high quality cocoa would give it that extra "umph", but Hersey works too.

I think it might have been a bad idea to use the dark cocoa. It really just blends with the dark grans bitterness.

Regular cocoa is better maybe because it adds that little creamyness to it.

NICE!!!!


Man I love the smell of this brewing in the house. Last year we talked the wives into letting us (brother and I) put the main burner in the kitchen...Mmmmmmmm the smell was awsome, and the wives hated it of course along with the messy boil over due to talking beer, drinking beer, brewing beer w/o lookin.

bubbling away in the fermenter as we speak. The wort did not taste very chocolaty post boil, but I'm sure that is because the sweetness of the wort masked it too much. Once it's done in the primary I'm confident I'll be able to taste the chocolate.

I just used Hershey's Cocoa powder, unsweetened like you would use for baking.

Sweet, I was hoping no one used the dark cocoa, since I was quite displeased with the results.

Hope you guys like it

Are either one of you using espresso ,if you don't have an espresso maker the have those like Manuel espresso drippers that your tighten with a screwdriver. I can't recall the proper name for it but all my Vietnamese friends have them for making their ice coffee on the go.

Like I said before last year I used 8 cups of espresso, this year I did 4.

Also I had to edit the recipe where it asked for coffee beans- it is supposed to be brewed. Sorry about that.
I have never added just the beans but if I did I would go for 8 cups.
