Omfg. Opened one after only 6 days in a bottle, and holy shnikes! Smells exactly like haagen daaz Chocolate ice cream and tastes FRECKIN amazing! Still flat, obviously, very early but this is going to be fan-****ing-tastic once it's mature. THANK YOU ChshreCat

I broke my brewing cherry with this recipe. It sounded so good and I wanted to brew the kind of beer I like to drink. Great recipe. I added about 8oz. of black onyx cocoa powder. Made the wort turn black as night. I pitched the yeast, and as of this morning, its bubbling away.

O.G. = 1.066ish

Cheers Everyone!

Just started fermenting this bad boy 3 days ago but I forgot to put in the cocoa powder. Do I have to boil it up in some water and then add or should I just rack right onto it in secondary with the vanilla?

Hmmm... not sure at this point. I'd probably boil up a little water, stir the cocoa into suspension, chill while stirring and add it to the fermenter.

Sweet success so far with my batch. Yesterday it was exactly 3 weeks so I moved it to the secondary on the vanilla bean. I took a hydrometer reading (using a wine thief) and tasted the sample and wow. It was already as good as a Guiness Foreign Extra Stout with chocolate notes and it's still green. I hope it stays or gets even better with time. I always get nervous at this stage and hope that I didn't screw something up yesterday during the secondary process.

I'm stoked right now though.

My apologies for the continual posts, but to those who are making this: it cleans up a LOT the longer you let it sit. Obviously this is true with most beers, but I have noticed a great change in flavour from 3 weeks in a bottle to about 2 months in a bottle. If yours taste "too bitter" initially, just let them keep sitting and wow. The gf thought they were okay after 3 weeks, but is trying to wipe me out of them now. Luckily I've got some other stouts on deck so I can save a few bottles of this to crack in 4 or 5 months. Alright, I'm out.

I bottled this today. Wow! Great chocolate with a bit of hot liquor. Can't wait to try it for real. FG ended up @ 1.021
