I currently have a stout a few days in the primary and will be heading out of town for two weeks (it will have been in primary for 1 week).
I would like for this to be a chocolate cherry stout and already have lactose, cocao nibs, and cherry extract.
I wonder if I can add the lactose and cacao (boiled to sanitize) to the primary before going out of town then add another couple oz of cacao nibs extract (vodka) when I get back to up the chocolate flavor.
Has Anybody tried a strategy like this? Any advice? I've never brewed with cacao or extracts before.
Primary: Pale Summer Wheat, EdWort's Apfelwein
Bottled: Kinda Cherry Chocolate Milk Stout
Upcoming: American Amber
