Nice! I had planned on doing 10 gal of this today… but seeing as it’s past 5am, and I’ve been up for over 25 hrs, it might have to wait till Saturday
I’m going to add the cocoa powder to the mash tun as a previous poster mentioned… and hopefully eliminate most of the sludge that carriers over from bk to carboy to keg.
I’m looking for an abv of around 7%; not sure if I should age it, as in extending fermentation (after reaching fg) for an extra week or two or racking it to a secondary…?? Was also thinking about adding some vanilla beans soaked in 2oz of vodka for the last week.
This is a good recipe… I highly recommend serving on nitrogen!
Cool, post what you did and I will too! Cheers!
