Hey all i just brewed an 11 gallon batch of this just wanted to check it. looked like motor oil coming out of my mash tun. GREAT!! can't wait for this to be ready. My S.G was 1.058 so i was pretty close to the recipe specs. here are two pics from my brew day, little close to the top of my kettle but i had a nice slow rolling boil so it was all good!

I have been looking for a good Coffee Chocolate Vanilla Porter recipe for a while and I think I will use this as a base for my next brew. Is there a place that sells the Dutch Cocoa powder somewhat cheap or should I just use the Hersheys type? Is there a difference? I found a seller on Ebay that does 2oz packages for $3.00 but I don't know if there is a difference in taste vs the Hersheys

I just did this BIAB for my first go around at an all grain attempt. My OG was pretty low at 1.050. I added closer to 4 oz. of cocoa powder as I wanted it to be pretty high on chocolate flavor. Also, I mashed pretty high at 155-156 with a 170 degree mash out. It was really thick going into the fermenter, but I'm hoping that it will thin out a touch over fermentation. Hopefully it turns out well.

Also, as a warning to those using a kettle with a SS braid or similar filter, cocoa makes it nearly impossible to drain. My braid got so messy with cocoa that it wouldn't drain at all, so I ended up just taking it off and draining without filtering (I use hop socks so it wasn't terrible).

Not really sure. I try and use the highest quality or something that is a favorite in my beers. Small batch anyways, the extra money for ingredients isn't going to kill me.

I've used the stuff from the LHBS before in a pinch and it was fine. I'm sure the hersheys will works just as well if you like it.

My favorite is some stuff in a can from Whole Foods, I'm out of it currently, so I can't pass the name along.

Good note on the cocoa. I don't have a filter on my kettle, as I use a SS hop spider.

What little hops are in this recipe, coupled with the cocoa, all of it could go into the fermenter and you'd really have so very little in the bottom.

I've never brewed in a bag before, but this recipe will have a good rich mouthfeel to it, but it won't be like a beer milkshake!

Mashing in now on this.

Same recipe I posted in the 1st post, except I removed the Black Patent malt, and instead decided to use 4oz of Debittered Black Malt.

Used English Chocolate malt, and Pale Chocolate malt in it as well. Just clarify for those searching for specific Chocolate Malts.

Going to add 3oz of some great chocolate powder at 20 minutes, debating adding peanut butter powder to the boil, and then adding some to secondary and racking on some broken peanut butter cups for a couple of days as fermentation is ending...

Maybe a #1 of peanut butter... Have a nice Oatmeal Chocolate Peanut butter Porter for the spring!



Mmm.. Good smelling mash!

Draining the tun. Motor oil goodness!

Last time I made this I added 1/2 pound honey malt and it added a great taste I compared to bottle of original recipe and its a nice touch. The peanut butter sounds great

Wow, thats alot of honey malt!

I'm gonna do .5# of peanut butter with 3 oz of chocolate powder to the boil. Skip the vanilla bean this go around, and dry hop it with Reese PB Cups near the end of primary next week.
