Chocolate Irish Stout

Postby enzo_damario » Sunday Feb 28, 2016 6:21 am

Hi everyone! I just brewed an Irish Stout and added 4 Oz of unsweetened cocoa powder (I want the chocolate flavor but don't want it to be overpowering).

I'm planning to add lactose at bottling to actually sweet the cocoa into chocolate... how much lactose will suffice for a 5 gallons batch? 1 lb? 0.5 lb?

Your thoughts and expertise are more than welcome!

Have only ever brewed one Stout in the last 10 years, so I'm not much help to you!
