Default Chocolate Hazelnut Porter

Getting ready to brew this beer with real hazelnuts. No extract. Wish me luck.

That's awesome, dude. What are you using to get the Chocolate flavor? Just chocolate grain or are you using other specialty ingredients as well? I'd be real interested in seeing that recipe.

15 oz of natural cocoa powder at 5 mins in the boil. I've also got .5 lb of chocolate malt in there. As porter's go this is going to be on the light side color-wise. I'll post the recipe once the process is done.

Already commited to it. If it isn't sufficient I'll add nibs, soaked in bourbon, in the secondary.

Hazelnuts got roasted, chopped and thrown in the mash. We'll see what comes of it. I tasted a little bit ago, so far so good.
