2/13/16 - SG 0.997. Good, but very dry, a little bitter. Needs sweet. Added 5oz buckwheat honey with another 2oz cocoa powder (yes, more bitter...but hopefully also more cocoa aroma) in a little under a pint of water. See you in a few months...
2.5 gallon batch
~8lbs clover honey
8 oz cocoa powder
Spring water, no modifications, no boil
Lalvin 71B-1122 wine yeast
Dumped in the honey, shook up the cocoa with water, stirred and stirred and stirred. Go Ferm added with yeast, Fermaid K in a few days. Watch for it this winter at the earliest.
