Me and my buddy recently brewed a batch of Brewers Best English Pale and replaced the packet of Danstar Nottingham with White Labs English Ale. We also added 1 ounce of chocolate malt to the 8 ounces of Crystal 60. I was wondering if thats too much chocolate malt or enough. Im not really looking for too much dark malt flavor, just a little bit to give a bit more depth

Assuming a 5 gal batch, my guess is that 1oz of choc malt wont have a large impact on flavor or color.

i usually add 0.5-1oz in my ESBs and don't really notice it. you're only really adding color in such a small amount
