Ok so I have been reading through the many threads about adding a chocolate flavor to a porter and I really want to try it with my next batch. I was planning on just trying a simple porter recipe then adding cocoa powder (or any other alternative that will give the beer a chocolate flavor)to the batch.
Problem is, the more I read the more I read about how the amount that is used and when the addition is added seems to vary. Some add the cocoa at flameout (i assume that means 0min boil time), some talked about in the primary, some in the secondar, etc. And most used 8oz of cocoa powder but some people said that did not give a very noticeable taste.
I was hoping someone has had some experience with a cocoa addition and could tell me how they did it and what the result was.
Thanks in advance!
