First, I kind of wanted to make a slightly chocolatey beer with some vienna or munich malts. Does chocolate malt contribute a real chocolate taste? How much should I add if I only want it to be just noticeable?
Second, has anyone done a salsa beer? Maybe by adding some tomato sauce, garlic, and some jalapenos? I would also like to throw some cilantro (well, maybe a LOT since I love cilantro....yum) in there, but I know I can't boil it since cilantro's flavor compounds disintegrate when you heat them. Can anybody give me some info so I can start researching what this might involve?
