    Experimenting With Ingredients In Your Kitchen To Make Prepackaged Kits Unique

    So I brewed a Milk Stout with Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls Cereal

    I brewed a 2.5 gal batch of Milk Stout with Organic Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls cereal for a club competition. I did some research and technique (mash? boil? dry hop?) and amount (4 oz to entire box) were all over the place. I figured that the mash would be the best place to deal with...

    Coco Mocho (Empyrean Brewing Co) Clone attempt

    I won't go into the long back-story...I'll just say this is a beer that's rarely available via "whim rotation" and my wife and I absolutely love it, so I want to try and brew a very similar beer and hopefully get a clone recipe eventually. This is the info from their website that I used to...

    carbonating in the bottle with chocolate?

    Ive got a chocolate and peppers stout that is just about ready to bottle, and when I tasted it last, I found the chocolate flavor lacking. Since I plan on carbonating in the bottle, is it possible to use some sort of chocolate chip to provide the sugars and or bump up the chocolate flavor a...

    Chocolate Fudge Stout

    I am contemplating brewing a chocolate fudge stout using real fudge, and am wondering how this can be achieved? Would adding the fudge directly to the boil sometime near the end be the best time for this addition? Thank you in advance for any advice. Cheers!

    Cocoa nibs... Did I use too much whiskey for extracting?

    First time using cocoa nibs for a beer. I decided to use 16oz of Jack Daniels for 4oz of cocoa nibs. I let it sit for 5 days in the fridge. I transferred the beer after 7 days of fermentaion (chocolate milk stout). I’m starting to think I used too much whiskey after reading some threads...

    So I recently brewed something similar to this as an attempt at my first chocolate beer: https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/homebrew-recipe/rogue-chocolate-stout-clone/ Went to my LBS, the guy there told me to soak the cocoa nibs in vodka, and then dicard the nibs and add the vodka. I...

    For those of you who have used Cholaca...

    I'm really struggling to decide on whether to add the Cholaca straight to the primary before packaging the beer or waiting to add it to the keg. My concern on adding it to the keg (16oz for 5 gal) is whether or not it'll create too much sludge at the bottom and if it'll become too strong...

    David Lebovitz's Guinness Milk Chocolate Ice Cream

    I just made this recipe from David Lebovitz's book Perfect Scoop, and I have to say, it's really good. I haven't frozen it yet, but the custard's got a good chocolate flavor followed by some mild bitterness from the stout, with maybe a hint of hoppiness. I used Sam Adams' Cream Stout instead...
