I like it. I would add the chocolate at flameout. Also i think coco powder works better as well.

How much/many hazelnuts are you using?

Ive had good luck with using the bakers chocolate in secondary, but perhaps I will try the cocoa powder and see how that comes out. Im always willing to change things up.:ban:

That is a good question, as Ive never used them before and I would really like to have a nice flavor of hazelnut to come out. So with that said I probably will startout with about 8oz and take a sample to see where its at and then work from there.:mug:

I just tried putting toasted hazelnuts in a brown ale, not getting much flavor, I think the oils just ended up on top of the beer. I'd suggest using extract in secondary.

Good to know. I was thinking also a Hazelnut liquor like Franjellica(spelling?)or a cheaper spinoff of that brand.

If you have hazelnuts and vodka, you can make your own extract. Chop up nuts, throw in oven until they smell hazelnutty, throw in a jar with vodka for a couple weeks. If you don't have time to make your own, it shouldn't be tough to find at a grocery store.

I wouldn't use hazelnut liquor, all you want to do is add hazelnut flavor/aroma, a liquor contains much more than that.
