This isn't nuclear physics, it's making beer. You only need to be precise if you are

It seems almost dif...

Hey hey,Just a follow up here. I am terribly lazy. I left my stout in primary until about 6
weeks ago (yes, 7 months in primary) then chucked in about 250g of bakers cocoa disolved
(mostly) in water (...

Hey, I have a dedicated fridge but I'm not sure how accurate the thermostat is - I'm guessing

Deadly! Thanks a mill guys. Didn't realise that chocolate extract was just that syrupy stuff. I
have now decided to lash 3/4 ounce of that into the secondary and rack on top of it. Huzzah!!

Hey,Thanks a lot for the replies guys. Since it's already in primary I'm probably going to
