If you like chocolate, you will love this beer. Nearly 2 lbs. of crystal malt, paired with chocolate, debitterized black and carapils meld with 24 tablespoons of cocoa powder to make this a perfect marriage of beer and chocolate. We suggest Wyeast 1728 Scottish Ale yeast to add enough sweetness to balance the unsweetened chocolate. Want to kick it up a notch? Add a hint of raspberry flavoring. Note that this recipe calls for 1.5 cups of Cocoa Powder which is not included in the kit, but can be purchased at your local grocery store. Don't pick hot chocolate mix though!
Complete instructions are included with the beer kit. Our instructions include suggested mash temps, target gravity levels, hop addition times, and all the important brewing steps!
Our all-grain kits come with the necessary grains and hops for a 5 gallon batch.

Clarifying agents (i.e. Irish moss) and priming sugar can be purchased separately.
