Default Anyone have a Chocolate Porter recipe

I would like to brew a porter with a well balanced chocolate flavor. I looked through the recipes on here and didnt really find what i was looking for. Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Look for OhioBrutus's Edmund Fitzgerald clone. It's an amazing porter. You could just add 10-12oz of bakers chocolate to the boil in the last 5 minutes and it'd turn out great. You may want to add .5lb of lactose to the recipe also.

Not the be-all-end-all, but this one got really good reviews from my friends. Plagiarize as you see fit!

9lbs 2 row
1lb wheat malt
1.5 lb biscuit (kiln amber)
.5lb chocolate malt
.5lb crystal 120
.5lb crystal 70-80
.5 crystal 30
.5 flaked oats

1oz centennial 10% @60
.8oz fuggle 5.2% @30

Windsor dry yeast.

Now, the real win here was getting a great chocolate flavour and aroma. I didn't want to boil the chocolate and extract too much bitterness, but I wanted to get more out of it than just adding it to the secondary...

So after primary fermentation, I added about 150 g of cocoa powder to boiling water, stirred it to create a goopy paste, added that to the secondary, then actually warmed the secondary to about 25 C for a day.

I don't know if that was neccessary, but got great (not overbearing) chocolate flavour and taste without using an extract and without it being bitter or harsh.

There are plenty of other threads dealing with how to best use chocolate, too.

You can obviously get chocolate flavors from various specialty grain combos, but I also like the idea of using cocoa powder directly. I haven't done it in a porter, but I did a stout with chocolate/cinnamon/chipotles -- 8 oz of unsweetened hershey's cocoa powder at flameout gave a really nice, noticeable but not overwhelming chocolate component to the flavor

Just curious, with the hop addition with 0 minute boil time, does that mean dry hopped?

Thanks

No, dry hopping is done after the fermentation is done. 0 minutes is a flame-out add.

For what it's worth, I've brewed Jamil's brown porter from brewing classic styles a couple of times and it has a lot of chocolate flavor. It is also a really good porter. The recipe should be available online, i'm not sure if I can post it here.
