Default Too much of one ingredient

So, this is mostly me ranting about my own lack of foresight. I've had a couple weeks off, so I've been brewing a bit, and man, I really didn't plan ahead.

If I brew ONE MORE BREW with CHOCOLATE MALT I'm going to jump off a building. I'm already tired of this flavor and I haven't even tasted the brews yet.

In order, this is what's cooking:

1)Indian Brown Ale clone, bottled yesterday
2)Robust Porter, bottled yesterday
3)Dunkel Rauchbier, brewed 10 days ago
4)Black Perle DIPA, brewed yesterday
5)American Brown Ale made from second runnings of the DIPA, brewed yesterday.


All of them have some form of chocolate malt as a flavor component. It makes me want to hurl.


So, ever brew with too much of the same thing?

No, and my question to you is why are you doing it?

at least you're getting great learning experiences using the chocolate. forever on you'll be an expert on chocolate malts. i tend to get a new grain and use it a lot for a few brews in a row. by doing that you learn how it works in different recipes and color/flavor additions based on quantities used.

I try and avoid chocolate malt altogether if I can.
