I'm trying this recipe tomorrow, but as I'm quite a noob I'm a bit confused. Do I add the liquid extract at the beginning of the 60-min boil (which is what I usually do), or the last 15 min of the boil???

The recipe reads:
7.00 lb Amber Liquid Extract [Boil for 15 min]

When you have 15 minutes left in your boil, take the kettle off the heat and add your extract. When it's stirred in, put the kettle back on the heat for the last 15 minutes.

I just brewed this yesterday and this morning fermentation has taken off like a rocket! I got an OG of 1.068 so it seems to be on track.

Sorry if I missed this somewhere, but how long do you let these condition in the bottles for? I'd imagine its quite a while? I'm excited to see how this one turns out!

After 3 weeks it was carbed but had a slight hot alcohol flavor. After 6 weeks that was gone and it was just right.

Was wondering...and keep in mind that I am no where near being able to develop recipes , what about sweetening this up a little with a bit of lactose?

regardless I am going to make this bad boy in the next few days, if my LBHS has all the ingredients !!

If that's what you want, then you could sure do that. I wanted something nice and bitter. I love dark chocolate and will take that over milk chocolate any day, so that's what I was aiming for with this. Not a bitter bomb, but a nice, smooth bitter chocolate flavor. Home brewing is all about doing what you want, so go crazy and see what you can come up with!
