Notes

Add Coco Powder - 10 min. before end of boil.

Add Lactose - 10 min. before end of boil.

Add Cacao Beans 5-days before bottling, or day 7 after start of fermentation.

Note: day #8 from start, SG is 1.020, but taste has changed and I detect an off flavor kind of sour. So, I am adding 11g of Nottingham yeast, sprinkled on top and allowed to work. Maybe the SG will lower some.

Cold brew the espresso beans 24 hours before adding at bottle day. Lightly crush the beans, steep in cold water.

Ferment - 5 days @ 16C

               2 days @ 20C diacetyl rest<br />
              5 days @ 17C
