Notes

the addition of the cocoa powder may have made the beer too bitter. i tried it on day 2 of fermentation and didnt like it, its like bitter dark chocolate. I would add less cocoa powder next time. As a solution, I may add lactose to the finished beer to increase the sweetness. I will keep tasting it and see what happens. Over all however, I think its a good flavor for a mexican chocolate stout.

bitterness faded, but I still think the cocoa added an unwanted edge. I'm adding 1/4 lb of lactose disolved in 2 cups water to the secondary for each 5 gallon.

On 11/22/16 day 11 i racked the beer into the secondary. To one i added 16grams ancho chilies includign seeds, broken apart
6 grams chili de arbol pods, cut open and wit hseeds
1 vailla bean cut open
8g cinnamon sticks broken up
2.2g (1 tbs) nutmeg
and 1/4th lb of lactose dissolved in 2 cups water and boiled
