I would love to try this recipe, but I am only doing extract w/steeping grains right now.
Is there anyway you can convert it for me?

If you can do steeping grains, you can do a small mash. I would just replace the 2-row with 4-5 pounds of LDE and do a small mash with the rest of the grain bill.

mash with 2 gallons of water at 160 to hit a temperature of 150, you can do it in any vessel that will hold 3 gallons, wrap it in a towel and let it sit for an hour.
After the hour is up strain it into your brewpot and heat the rest of your clean brewing water in another vessel to 170 and let the grainrest in there for another half hour or 45 minutes, again strain into your brewpot, add yur extract and away we go!

I never did steeping grains really, so i dont know anything about that. though steeping seems like a really simplified mash.

I forgot to mention in the recipe, I also added about a tablespoon of homemade vanilla extract in secondary. The beer tasted very similar to breckenridge vanilla porter with a bit of a spicy kick. The spiciness dies down over town but was ever present. So if it comes out a bit hot at first, give it some time.

and please, let me know how it turns out. I will be doing my third batch next month.

thanks! I am doing slightly more chocolate malt and cocoa and probably leaving out the vanilla extract for more pronounced chocolate flavor instead of heavy vanilla.

will be brewing it up probably next week when all the supplies come in- getting excited!

Thanks for sharing the recipe. I have just started brewing but was already thinking about a chocolate chipolte porter. This gives great information on how much and when to add the chillies and chocolate. Planning on using a dark cocoa powder and upping the amount of pepper a bit.

How did put the cocoa and vanilla bean in secondary? Just dropped the cocoa in and split and scrap the beans and drop in.

I used ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa powder dissolved in some hot water along with the Cayenne and vanilla beans(scraped) and extract, added to bottom of secondary and racked on top.
