Interesting, thanks for the link. So a chocolate-mint stout has been brewed and came out good. That is good to know.
I'm amazed how diverse the feedback was. Some stated my recipe is a waste, but some actually did it and were sucessful.
I'm making several changes to my recipe based on the comments here, so thank you guys.
It may not come out good, but trying diferent things is the reason why I'm homebrewing.
You know, if people wouldn't challenge the limits and experiment, we would probably have only 2 or 3 styles of beer today
