I just brewed a Chocolate Raspberry Porter. I am actually bottling tonight, can't wait! Here is what I did:
1 Can LME (Light)
2 lb DME (Light)
1/2 lb Cara-pils
1/2 lb Chocolate Malt
1/2 lb Cara-Vienne
1/2 lb Wheat
1 oz Fuggle Hops
White labs British Ale yeast
1 oz semi-sweet chocolate
1 can raspberry puree
(i decided to go with the puree after this discussion: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1535
After adding the extract, I melted the chocolate in a saucepan (added a little wort to thin it out) and then slowly stirred that in as well.
My boil was only 1/2 hour total. 1/2 oz for first 15 minutes, then added the remaining for the second 15 minutes.
It sat in the primary for 1 week, and then i racked it into the secondary over the can of puree. It has been there for another 2 weeks and is ready to be bottled.
