Are you using chocolate milk mix? Or actual 100% cocoa?

Cocoa is nearly pure chocolate. It's not equal ounce by ounce to a chocolate bar. By that logic, you could add 22 oz of chocolate extract and expect it to be the same.

I'm using 100% baking chocolate like the recipe says.

100% cocoa baking chocolate is just that, 100% cocoa in bar form. Haven't you ever baked anything before? You can substitute 3 tblsps of cocoa + 1 tblsp of oil for 1 oz of chocolate. You need to add the oil when baking to substitute the natural oils that are left in the bar but not in the powder.

Ahh, my mind was on the track that you were using cocoa in the tinned powdered form. 22oz would be one radical amount if you were. LOL

How was your head? Did the oil in the bakers chocolate cause you any problems?

Doesn't seem to have. I don't get a whole heaping load of head, but I do get a little bit. For some reason that just sounds wrong.

This sounds really interesting. I just started A.G. brewing and I think this will be either next or second in my queue. How is the new batch going?

I just got my ingredients in today and I'll be brewing this on Saturday. Just to be sure, Dextrine is also called Carapils(Austin Homebrew Supply), correct? Or did I screw that up?

just to be sure before i order ingredients. the dextrine-carapils discussion refers to the 'dextrose' listed in the recipe? all 3 of them being the same thing, correct? sorry.

Yes, but only because I spelt Dextrin as Dextrose. In real life Dextrose (you probably know it as glucose) and Dextrin are different.
