Thanks for posting this, I think I'll make a few changes so its Gluten Free and make it right after Thanksgiving with my dad, should be ready mid-January...I'll let you guys know.

According to BeerSmith- I bumped up my IBU's to 40 with Chinook and Nugget as my hops, potential ABV is 6.2%, and color should be void of light (I hope)

Any thoughts on 2 week primary 2 week secondary or is 2 weeks too long on the vanilla bean?

Keep in mind that BeerSmith isn't taking the cocoa powder into account. It's giving you a big wallop of bitterness in there, so you might not want to up the IBU's too much. This baby is BITTER as it is!

It's worth a shot! Taste it after a week and see if you want to go another. At one week the vanilla doesn't really come though... it just takes the bite off the bitter chocolate.

Do you have a BSM file for this? I would like to convert this to all grain and do scale it down to 3.5 gallons. It sounds delicious!

Brewed this past Tuesday, kind of politely bubbling away but no big krausen at all...I havent taken a reading yet but just curious how the fermentation was for other folks?

I always used foam control drops, so a thin krausen doesn't ever surprise me. What kind of cocoa did you use? That might have an effect on it.

thesanch: I can upload one when I get a chance. Might not be for a few days. Might be easier to just punch the ingredients in than to wait for my lazy ass.

I did not have a huge krausen on mine either. My visible fermentation on this was also short and active however...
I did just put mine into the secondary. I hit your original gravity dead on and i was only off .002 on the final.

Mine didn't look quite as dark as yours but the taste even for being green is pretty yummy. Now to wait until Christmas.

I used regular Hershey's Cocoa Powder in mine. It's practically fat free anyway.

That would be the stuff. I got it at the co-op I go to. Hippy store.
