comment How much chocolate extract should I use?
Chocolate extract is just about the only form of chocolate i didn't put in my stout. I used Bakers chocolate in the boil and added cocoa into my secondary. Wasn't able to find chocolate extract in time. If it were me, I'd go with more than less, but I was making a double chocolate stout.

comment Uses for spent grains
Please, feel free to revise. Maybe we can come up with some different processes for different types of grains/breads.

comment Steeping Specialty Grains
Interesting idea for adding pale malt to the specialty for more flavor extraction. I'll have to try this next time.

comment Steeping Specialty Grains
I also just witched to the method (from using a grain bag) you described in my latest batch. Filtered out grains with colander and cheese cloth, then rinsed with 4 qts of 170º water. Definitely more satisfying than just steeping the specialty grains.

Also, in addition to the OP's question: any thoughts about cleaning aluminum vs. steel would be helpful.
