Notes

Batch #1 - 29/7/18

  • Gladfield Med Crystal (0.45kg) in for Crystal 40 (0.57kg)
  • Added 2kg ale malt to add ABV and body but not much flavour.
  • Rolled oats added for body, mouth feel and head retention.
  • Chocolate malt (145g) upped to 200g total split light/dark.
  • No Whirlfloc to try and keep body.
  • No starter used.
    13/8/18 - SG: 1020, tastes of sweet chocolate, FG is a bit higher than expected maybe use a starter next time.
  • Added 2 vanilla pods soaked in bourbon for months.
    16/8/18 - FG: 1020, tastes freaking great, dark chocolate flavours, cold crashed.
    18/8/18 - Carbed and kegged, 30psi for 2min 20sec.
    8/9/18 - Tasting great, lots of chocolate flavour, not too sweet, perfect body for the ABV, very positive feedback. I will make this again, maybe throw some flavours at it.
