I'm eagerly awaiting your critique. This sounds like a definite "snow brew". I plan on making this the following saturday after the first snowfall.

Tasted it tonight! It tasted great! I think it would taste much better with good quality hazelnut extract, rather than the generic syrup I used. All in all, though, It was an excellent beer. I'm sure it will get better with time. I'll check back in a few days and let everyone know how the beer has progressed.

Brewing this right now. When did you all add the Hazelnut Extract? It sounds like I add it at the same time as the priming sugar before I bottle. ex: before I rack into my bottling bucket put the extract and sugar in there

Think I've got it down but any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

Add it same time as priming sugar in the bottling bucket. Then let it condition in bottles for at least a couple weeks. If you can wait that long

The first time I made this, I used the extract instructions and it turned out awesome. This recent time, I used AG and the hazelnut is over powering. I used the same brand 2oz hazelnut extract with each batch. Any idea what went wrong? I will have to go back and look, but I think the first one ended up being ~6.5% and this one was ~5.25%.

Second one may have less roasty grains to balance out the hazelnut flavor. Try letting it age for a couple weeks more and try again. The flavors may blend together more with some conditioning.

I plan on doing this as my first brew. looks simple enough. I'd like to omit the hazelnut extract though. Any ideas on how this might end up?

I made it without the Hazelnut extract and it was a great brew! My friends loved it.

Excellent good to hear! Now to get all these ingredients together...

edit: sidenote - any idea how much to pick up all the ingredients needed for this? I have some usweetened cocoa powder, though its Hershey's, not that Girralledaldi stuff (sorry for butchering the name)

This beer came out absolutely amazing! Easy recipe to follow and absolutely delicious. My only concern was I felt that maybe 1 - 1.5 oz of the hazelnut flavor would have probably been good (or maybe more chocolate?)...but that's just personal preference as I would have liked a little more chocolate flavor. Once again, only personal preference.
