If you are using "chocolate" make sure it's unsweetened. Powder is easy.

Cooling capacity! I just did my first stout and had to freeze more water jugs for the SOFC.

uh...what?



As for the choco advice, +1 to using unsweetened. I've used bakers chocolate before added with 10min left in the boil with good results. It helps if you either finely chop it or melt it beforehand in the microwave

Sorry for being vague. For the stout I made (7-8% abv) the fermentation was more vigorous compared to the normal 5-6% ales. If I was still using the closet for fermentation with it would not have been cold enough to keep the fermentation temperature in the proper range.

I got lucky that I have a Fermentation chamber that uses jugs of frozen Ice and a fan to create a colder environment for fermentation.

I've used 8 ounces (1 can) of cocoa powder in the last few minutes of boil, and then used cacao nibs in the secondary (8 ounces ).
