4 ounces. It was actually cacao nibs, not cocoa nibs, but I honestly have no idea how much of a difference it makes. I'm sure it's a big difference when making chocolate, but in beer, I can't see the difference being that significant.

Bobby, did you use cocoa nibs or cacao nibs. The beer is probably ruined.

All my googling has lent me to believe that the ONLY difference better cocoa nibs and cacao nibs is the spelling. That it's the same ingredient and like color and colour people just spell it different ways. But it's still the same animal.

What did you end up doing with the cacao nibs? Did you put them in during the last minute of flame out, or just basically add them dry to the fermenter?

I've gathered all of the ingredients to make a chocolate bock, and wondering what the best method would be (I wouldn't mind more of a chocolate taste though). Also, if you're just adding them dry to the fermenter, how are you going to sanitize them?
