I have had great success with Organic Chocolate extract. 2-4 oz. I have also found Cacao Nibs to work just as well. 4oz. of those will do the trick. Just drop either one in the secondary fermenter.

they are definitely not the same. I would not recommend using hot choc mix. they have all sorts of crap in them that I would never want in my beer. just my 2 bits.

Right now I've got 8oz of Hershey Cocoa Powder. So I'm thinking I'll combine some different ideas. First make a cocoa soup with the lactose and put it in at flame out and then put in some nibs in secondary and let it go for a few months before I try some out to see if it needs more time to mellow out. Sound good?
