So I am going to brew a chocolate porter within the next month for this fall, and I am working on my recipe. The problem I am getting, is that the Final Gravity seems really high and I don’t know how to get it down.
Liquid Malt Extract - Dark 10.0 lb
Special B (BE) 0.25 lb 2 % Steep
Black Patent (UK) 0.25 lb 2 % Steep
Chocolate (BE) 0.25 lb 2 % Steep
1 oz of Northern Brewer @ 60 mins
WLP007 English Yeast
8 oz unsweetened cocoa powder @ FO
I would like the FG to be a little bit lower, but I don’t know what to do.
