This recipe will be my next brew.
The vanilla bean idea sounds awesome with it. How would you do the beans? In the boil? In the primary? Soaked in bourbon?

I used 2 or 3 beans I can't remember now and cut them up soaked them in vodka for a few days to clean them and put them in secondary. If you don't use a secondary just add them to your pirmary about a week after your brew date. Mine turned out great only a few bottles left.

It's a play on words. Chocolate+Hazelnut= Choconut

There is no coconut flavor. Might be good with a little toasted coconut added though.

I brewed this yesterday ended up with an OG of approx 1.072, plan to add a few vanilla beans soaked in vodka in about 2 weeks and let it sit a bit, then when bottling add in a graham cracker flavor to try to get a s'mores taste to it.

this brew looks simple and AMAZING. I'm soooooo trying this out for one of my next brews after I get my equipment in (impatiently pacing)

one thing to clarify if you don't mind. you list 8.52 lb's of Pale Malt (2 Row)

the only 2 row at my LHBS is just called Domestic 2 row
http://www.beer-wine-brewing.com/sto...cat=330&page=1

is that the right one??? the only other "pale" malt was listed as belgian pale only (no mention of 2 row)

Oh yeah this looks awesome! Just getting strike water ready. Doing the ag version with 10 lbs of 2 row and knocking the chocolate and crystal down to 1 lbs. got some fancy cocoa SWMBO gave me from penzeys spice company. Have 2 vials of dry English wlp 007 that I bought by mistake that I'm going to try. Maybe going to try out almond extract since I can't find hazelnut.
Hey wormrap yeah that two row you linked is the base malt you want.

Just kegged and bottled this yesterday wow great flavor. Big coffee notes with a chocolate finish that is just tell you to take another gulp. A few months in the keg should make this just incredible. I am not putting hazelnut in as I couldn't find it for one and the other think this one stands well on its own. Thanks for a great recipe.

For those of you who DO use a secondary fermentation stage, have any of you tried adding the hazelnut during secondary? Likely kegging this one and I was thinking of adding it then. Any thoughts on adverse effects?
