My question, and my apologies if its already been answered (I did read the whole thread awhile ago...) my girlfriends friend is asking me for a "chocolate" beer.. I was thinking of doing this recipe again but adding nibs to my fermenter & maybe upping the lactose to a pound. Any idea on how that would turn out?
I suspect that would work VERY well. I have brewed this beer as-is, and it turned out VERY good. Adding nibs to secondary and sweetening with a little more lactose should make an EXCELLENT chocolate/dessert beer.
Let me know how it turns out, because I had the EXACT same idea!!! I want to try that variation next time.
