I brewed a 2.5 gallon batch of this and it came out very tasty. Now I have a bottle of chocolate extract and was going to try again but was wondering if there a recipe using less or no lactose (for those who lactose intolerant). Or something else I could use my chocolate with.

If you are doing all grain, you can mash really hot tore rain some sweetness and use a low attenuating yeast like wlp002. It won't be the same or as sweet, but that should be fine. You can also reduce your IBU by reducing the bittering addition. Good luck

Tore rain should be to retain...

How did the chocolate taste come out in the beer? I like the idea of adding it to the mash.

It tastes great! It actually produces the chocolate taste in the background and mixes with the roasted grains very well. I left it up to her to add the extract at kegging. She added a little more than the recipe calls for and it tastes like a dark chocolate bar.

just made this and after letting it sit in the bottle for just around 12 days, i took it to my homebrewers meeting and everyone was totally blown out of the water! they were all asking for refills! and this is my very first 5 gallon batch ever too...thanks so much for posting this. im doing a few variations on it, (like i did the first time for lack of exact ingredients, etc.) and i cant wait to see how they turn out

Is the cocoa powder in the recipe by weight or volume?

Just a simple question

Do you boil the chocolat extract?

What do you do with the chocolat extrat that left,... other then "rebrew"? what about the storage?

You just put the extract in the keg or bottling bucket. You don't boil it. If you have some left over use it for another batch or use it for baking. It's great in brownies or chocolate cake.
