This was our first ever class taught specifically for newer brewers. Each brewer got a 20 page handout on various goofy ideas held by your's truly about homebrewing.
In short order we'll post up the basic handout form minus the articles.
This beer utilizes one of my favorite techniques for softening the hard acidic edge found from heating your dark roast malts. The pound of chocolate malt was soaked overnight and then strained. The resulting liquid was then added at the very end to darken the brew and preserve the smooth chocolate effect of the black malt.
Why the 2 tubes of yeast instead of a starter? Two reasons, I was being lazy and it was to drive home that you can always find a way to get your yeast counts up.
