Thanks for the knowledge. I hadn't heard of nucleation points before.
So in your method, do you add your pellets and seal it with no bubbler or blow off? Then cold crash it 5 days or so later?

If it happens to be overcarbed, how long would you say it takes to return to normal carbonation? Using the "shut off gas and continuously purge every few hours" method?

In addition to 1 pound of Carafa II, do you use any chocolate, black patent or any other 350srm+?
I'm thinking I might do .5 of this chocolate wheat and another .5 of something else.
