Product details

Roasted Cacao nibs from Ecuador. Cacao nibs are the crushed seeds of the cacao plant from which chocolate is made. They can be used to add a rich cocoa/chocolate aroma and flavor to beer.
Cacao nibs are the crushed seeds of the cacao plant from which chocolate is made. They can be used to add a rich cocoa/chocolate aroma and flavor to beer.

Dosage depends on the beer and the amount of flavor desired. We tend to recommend 2-4 oz. per 5 gallon batch as a starting place. The nibs can be added late in the boil, but keep in mind this will extract some bitterness out of the nibs. For a smoother contribution, add in the secondary for a week or two. Cacao nibs are a great addition to dark beers such as brown ales, porters, and stouts, but feel free to experiment with this fun ingredient in other styles as well!

Coco extravaganza

These coco nibs are fabulous. I have found that I get more flavor soaking them in spiced rum rather than vodka. There was no flavor change by soaking them in spiced rum just pulled more flavor out of the nibs.

Chocolate Stout

Used it in the secondary for a Rogue Chocolate Stout clone. The chocolate flavor came through very nicely. Gave the nibs a 24 hour soak in vodka before adding them.

Two weeks wasn’t enough

I won’t knock the product but will say that 2 weeks in secondary wasn’t long enough. Didn’t taste much different than the same brew I made earlier with no nibs.
