Default Chocolate Hazelnut Porter

Getting ready for the fall season and I just brewed Jamil's Chocolate Hazelnut Porter Extract Kit from Morebeer. After the primary fermentation is done, I need to add the cocoa nibs that came with the kit. I assume I need to sanitize the cocoa nibs before adding to the fermenter, but the instructions don't mention sanitizing. I've read that some folks soak the nibs in vodka. Is this the best method? If so, how long should the nibs be soaked before being added to the fermenter? Is there a better method?

Here's another question: Do I need to sanitize the hazelnut flavoring before adding to the bottling bucket? Again, no mention of any of this in the instruction sheet.

Any help, hints or other suggestions for this recipe would be much appreciated.

The flavoring you sanitize just add it in. The coca nibs I'm not sure about as I haven't used them before.

Call Morebeer ! They are very helpful and easy to talk to.
