I buy it at a co-op. Threw it in the last 15 minutes of boil. You really have to stir well or it clumps up and makes dry little cocoa dumplings.

OK, I will try this first.

You might want to put the powder in in a glass of cold water and mix it before you put it in wort. Kind of like making gravey. You never put your thicking flour directly in hot drippings. Alas, one big clump.

Alright, I broke down and bought a refractometer today. I just measured the wort sample from the fridge. It has settled quite a bit since brew day. The sample measured at 11 on the Brix. So that means a starting gravity of 1.044. So, maybe a little more honey next time, but not much more. It smells awesome (definetly nuts and chocolate, along with the pine and citrus from the hops)...cant wait to drink it!!!!! Matt, do you have an idea where your chestnut beers finished gravity wise?
