    Bump, anyone else have any tips on this? Looking to try something very similar within the next
    couple weeks

    Update:I went with the lactic acid. Used a whole 150ml bottle for my 5 gallon batch, and opened
    by first one last night. It's not bad! It added a fairly sharp tartness and the beer is
    drinkable which ...

    Thanks for all the tips, will probably attempt to add lactic acid to get this batch at least
    drinkable even if it's not great, and will definitely pitch lacto next time around.

    What kind of a yeast did you use first off. While acidic malts add a bit of a souring effect
    the type of yeast used also plays a huge role in producing flavors within fermentations. In a
    gose and many...

    lacto. J...

    Just as a follow up here, I actually think the cocoa powder we used was a bit much. If I brew
    this again, i'll scale it back to maybe 5 oz or so instead of 8.

    I bottled yesterday, and the beer tastes great pre-carb. Thanks for all the advice, seems like
    a success as long as it carbs up properly!

    Ok update on mine:After crank and shake force carbing this beer (dont judge me lol) I'm
    starting to think I judged it too quickly. Still a little dry but the carbonation really helps.
    I'll still use a...

    ****, yes I did use that SD Super yeast. Hope there's some sweetness left after it's done!...if
    not, is there any decent way to add some at secondary?
