I just used cocoa nibs for the first time as well. I have 5 oz of them in a sac sitting at the bottom of my keg.
I am going to let them sit there for a week and transfer to another keg. I soaked the nibs is a glass jar filled with vodka for 3 day prior to using them.

I soaked 8 oz of cocoa nibs in about a cup of vanilla rum for about 24 hrs and then dumped them in the primary. It imparted a great, but not overpowering, chocolate flavor. I left them in there for about a week.
