Notes

Add lactose @ 10 min in boil.

Soak cocoa nibs in just enough vodka to cover them for 3 days. Put them into the primary vessel with vodka for 3-4 days after fermentation.

TO ENCOURAGE BANANA:

  • Fermentation temp should be around 70-72F
  • Underpitch yeast packet depending on calculation (I think 1/4 of the packet should be fine for 2.5 gallons)
  • Open fermentation
