WARNING: Kettle losses > 2% detected which throw off OG calculation for extract/partial mash recipes in batch target 'fermentor' mode. Solution: Reduce kettle losses, misc losses and hops absorption in equipment profile, OR set batch target to 'kettle' and do a full wort boil. See batch target FAQ.

Notes

My first recipe. Started as a simple chocolate stout kit that I altered and tweaked to increase gravity (abv%) and lean the flavors towards Mexican mocha stout.

Bottled and tasted, didn't pick up on cinnamon, nutmeg, and coffee flavors much. Maybe increase amounts next batch.
