Default Will this recipe give too chocolate flavor?

12 gallon batch
OG 1.085

36# 2-Row
2# C60
20oz Chocolate

If it gives too much chocolate, how can we get it to around 23SRM without adding too much roasty/chocolate flavor.

well, that is relative. It does not appear to be too much to me-- assuming you are speaking of chocolate malt. If so, I would say even more is appropriate. What are you looking to get in your flavor profile?

Only for color.

It's more of a Imperial Red...with lots of hops.

Can you ever really have too much chocolate flavor?

The title is a little misleading.

We don't want the flavor from the chocolate malt. We want the color.

Use some Carafa special in place of chocolate if you are just looking for color.

This. Chocolate malt gets its name moreso from its color, not its flavor. It gives more of a roasty flavor than anything (as opposed to tasting like straight up chocolate). If you want the color with little malt flavor, go with a dark Carafa.

A little roasted barley would also add some good color if you're looking for red.

23 SRM is not red, you would be making an imperial brown with this bill. use 2-4oz of carafa III
