Mine smells awesome as well. I followed the recipe and added the chocolate at flameout. I would assume 212 F liquid would have no prob melting chocolate but my fermenter does look like a giant cup of hot chocolate! Can't wait to try this one.

Alan

Let us know how this turns out. I plan on brewing it soon.

Mine had them but not by the OZ

Anyway after 20 days in the primary I took a reading last night...1.024

It has an OG of 1.090 at 4.5 gals but I topped off to 5 gal. The hydro sample was cloudy and filled with a ton of coffee so im racking off later this week and adding the second coffee addition.

Did you use the recipe in BYO? Supposedly it came straight from the guy at Founders. I think the FG is supposed to be 1.020 so you are not far off but the OG was supposed to be 1.078 for 5 so you were probably pretty close.

Mine was 1.074 with ~5.5 gallons. I rack to secondary this Sunday and I'll let you know what the gravity is. Did you taste the hydrometer sample?

Regards,
Alan
