I have used good quality imported chocolate bars tossed in a blender, but the flavor was REAL subtle. I just tried a Palmetto Porter that is superb and I want that level of flavor in my brews.

So, I was wondering which grains or combination of grains produce that chocolate flavor.

I get a lot of lighter chocolate flavor from Chocolate Wheat. Chocolate Malt is chocolatey but also kind of nutty.

There are a lot of data bases out there that help with flavor profiles of malt, hops, etc. but my favorite remains the Midwest brewing catalog (probably because I buy from them online so it’s most convenient). Here is the link to there roasted malt page: http://www.midwestsupplies.com/homeb...sted-malt.html

Hope this helps

Thanks Kickass. Good info based on a quick look see. I'll look it over better when I get time.
It seems that where I was shopping said it was used for color not flavor. They also said it had a roasted coffee flavor. Looks like Midwest Supply just got a new customer.

Mullenite;
I’ll try that. Thanks.

Dang guys…

My head is now spinning from ALL the possibilities I found on that one site. Their info is so much better than what I have been looking at.

I now want to start creating my own recipes and not just finding one SOMEONE else likes.

Thanks for filling ALL my free time for a while. (I think!)
