“Sexual Chocolate" Porter [bottled]

Bottling date: January 27, 2013

3 gal Porter on cacao nibs
  • 58 g corn sugar
  • 16 oz water
Desired CO2: 2.2 vol
Temperature: 64 'F

0.5 gal Porter
  • 10 g corn sugar
  • 8 oz water

TG: 1.020
ABV: 7%

Porter (cacao)
Color: Brown-black with reddish hue at edges
Smell: Burned chocolate
Taste: Rich, thick, dark chocolate flavor. Can definitely detect the cacao. Some bitterness, but not hop apparent

Only real difference is no bitter chocolate flavor from the cacao. Also less warmth on the end. Probably from the lack of whiskey.

Attempting to wash and save yeast.
