Brewed a chocolate beer last night.

At approximately 8 % abv. this should be a nice sipper. Hoping the liquid malt extract and the yeast work together to leave some sweetness behind to complement the chocolate.
  • Nottingham Yeast
  • Wheat LME
  • Steeping Grains (Chocolate, Roasted Barley, Special B)
  • Cascade (bittering), Halluertau & Fuggles (flavor and aroma)
  • 1.5 cups of Hershey's Cocoa powder during the last 15 minutes of the boil
First time I ever used Cocoa. Should be interesting :-) These aren't necessarily the ingredients I would have chosen, but, its what I have at the time and will keep with my goal of using what I have before I spend money. It also gets me more familiar with these ingredients by using them over and over again.
