I'd go with three weeks in primary and a week in secondary. That'll give you 6 weeks or so to carb up. This is a higher alcohol brew and might take a little bit longer to carb up. Plus, higher alcohol brews need a little more time to get ready to drink.

Good point. Looking through the thread, it seems like some people have trouble with it carbing up

I brewed this up last night. Used Rapunzel's Organize Cocao Powder (with < 1g/fat per serving), 7oz. Very much looking forward to it!

Mine is still aging nicely, you might want to watch your fermentation temperature, I tried to keep mine down, but it's rather estery.

It actually reminds me of a beer I had at a Kohler homebrew tasting called cocoa monkey, like a chocolate banana.

Btw thanks for sharing the recipe!
I had the close the the same readings. Og was 1.08 and the FG 1.04. Bottled 10 days ago. I can see the bubbles in the beer. It just doesn't feel like it in the mouth. I was hoping for sweetness. It's still a little to sweet. But, for a first brew. I'm pleased and learned ALOT.

Infected

Might save a few bottles, but going to dump most of it so I have room for something else

I haven't yet, but got a bunch of blackberries in the freezer from our plants this summer and was thinking about doing just that.

The idea of adding blackberries. Just seems like an AWESOME dessert beer. ChshreCat, How long do you think it would take to age?
