I'm going to make a simple extract Nut Brown ale today - a full five gallon batch.
But, when I go to bottle (I don't do a secondary), I'm thinking of putting a gallon or two into a smaller carboy and adding cocoa powder for a "sub batch." Then, letting that sit for a couple of weeks
Any opinions on that method to get a stronger chocolate flavor into the beer? Or, would it be better in a primary? I could just as easily put a portion of the original wort in a smaller vessel and add the additional chocolate then.
