Ok, so 5oz water with 10g cocoa? How many days should i leave it in or just put it in when I'm bottling?

I'd add the chocolate to the boil.

If you've already made your beer then you could add to the fermenter but I personally think the boil is best. Last beer I tried it in the mash as per a BYO article I read but I found it made the mash more viscous. I think they added to the mash in order to help avoid clumping or something, or perhaps less residue in the kettle but I'm going back tot he boil.

I bought a few different stouts and tasted them with my CDOS.mine was my favourite because of the stronger dark flavours after taste smelt better too. Had head and creamier some had none.my chocolate stout had good bitterness compared with other chocolate stouts. I am very pleased with this oatmeal stout.
