Sounds great. Have you tried the recipe both ways? Love to hear a side by side taste opinion.
Thanks for the reply.

I have not. I don't I will just because the chocolate flavor is perfect, and I wouldn't want it an less chocolatey.

Cool. Thanks for the feedback. I am thinking pretty seriously about doing the same. What type of chocolate did you use?

Brewing this again tomorrow. Gona try out my new shed since its our typical rainy mess here on the Columbia River. LHBS didn't have my yeast so went with 002 English ale. Also gona try a secondary with vanilla beans soaked in makers mark. Hope all goes well and I don't burn the place down.

I just went o whole foods and got the only cocoa nibs they had. It came in an 8 oz can. The rum was Mauritian rum that I got while on vacation there, but I am sure any hard alcohol would do the trick. The nibs soak up a lot of the booze. So don't worry if it looks like they are swimming when you start to soak them.

Definitely would recommend having a blowoff tube. The activity on this recipe is quite high the first couple of days. Enjoy!!

I'm having a problem with my gravity. I followed the all grain recipe but my og is reading 1.040. What did I do wrong and did I ruin this batch?
Thanks

Probably a mixing problem. If you did the extract version, then it is not possible to "miss" your gravity. Your gravity sample was probably not fully mixed with the extract, and your sample had more water than extract in it. I would not worry about that at all.
