Roger, it is Delicious !

& Richlong , it really depends on how much carbonation you desire in your brew.
personally for a robust porter like this i shoot for low\medium carbonation~

I added 5/8 cups honey into a half cup of boiling water and desolved it by stirring rapidly~ I then dumped this honey mixture into my botteling bucket and gave it a swirl ~


I suggest yinz try this one out!

I just bottled a batch of Milk Chocolate Porter using the following recipe. Since I have a 22 quart BK, I decided to cut back 2 pounds on the grain bill, and add 1 pound LME for balance.

4# two row
4# Marris Otter
1# LME
3# Chocolate Malt
1 oz Cascade hops
4 oz priming sugar
Adjuncts:
6 oz Roasted Cocoa nibs
3 Tablespoons Pure Vanilla (or to taste)
8oz Lactose (or to taste)

Mash @152 for 90 minutes, and recirculate wort until clear.
Sparge with 180F water for thirty minutes

Bring water to a full boil, turn of heat, add DME stir until malt is dissolved and turn heat back on.
Boil for 90 minutes, add hops at beginning of boil
When temp is below 70F pitch yeast
Leave in primary for two weeks (or more)
Rack to secondary, and add 6 oz of roasted, chopped, chocolate nibs that have been soaking in 375ml of vodka for 1 week
Leave in secondary for at least 2 weeks. I left my nibs in for 3 weeks, and not only was the aroma of chocolate completely there, but the flavor was really nice and evident. I can't wait to see what the beer will be like in three weeks, and then three months.
Ya, right, like it would last that long!

That recipe looks good man!!!
I have an oatmeal stout in primary right now and i just found out about this vodka soaking thing; im thinking about adding cocoa nibs to the secondary and leave it for two weeks, then bottle and leave for another 2 weeks. Do you think i will get a nice chocolate flavor ?

Just curious as to what the flavor would be if I added 4oz of nibs to the secondary with the malts being 8oz carapils, 8oz black malt, and 6lbs dark LME.

Thank you very much for your help!
