My batch has been in the bottle just over 3 weeks now. I popped one open this past weekend. Heard that promising little "pfft", but the beer was still flat.

Tasted mighty fine, though. I just hope I can wait til it carbs up properly.

The chocolate mellowed down quite a bit, but it's still there. Still tasty, but not quite the chocobomb that it is just a few weeks after carbing.

I just picked up my cocoa for a batch of this I'm going to brew now so it'll have a little time before NHC. Almost couldn't find it!

Here's what I use if anyone wants to look for it locally. The only fat free cocoa powder I've found. http://www.carbsmart.com/wondercocoa.html

Psychedelic: This is a pretty big partial mash for a first. I'm sure it'll be fine though. Almost like starting out all-grain. heheh

Nah, there's a lot going on in this beer. Makes it pretty forgiving. You can screw it up and while it won't taste the same, it should still be pretty good.

Finally got to brew this one again myself. Had to put the brew off for a week due to my daughter getting in a fight with a car and ending up in the hospital, but it's in the fermenter now and I'm happily awaiting the fermentation faeries to start their work! This one is earmarked for NHC!

Just transferred this to secondary and I kept having to restrain myself from submerging my face in the ale pail while I was racking.

I have never done secondary fermentation. Do you actually double ferment it or is it just more time for it to sit? and also we are doing a 10 gallon batch and we have a 6 gallon bucket for fermentation and a 5 gallon glass carboy. would it be terrible if we just left it fermenting for the total time in the single container?
