(Makes 5 gallons) Jamil brews more, consistenly high-quality beer than any hombrewer we know. He won California Homebrewer of the Year in 2002, after winning over 150 total awards at brewing competitions, 55 of them being FirstPlace. Of all the beers that he brews, the Chocolate Hazlenut Porter (CHP, as Jamil says) is the cult favorite and the recipe he is asked-for the most. It also won Best of Show 2002, several First Place ribbons, and countless other awards. It comes complete with 25 ml of Hazlenut extract and 8 oz of chocolate. Jamil recommends using California yeast, WLP001. This kit has a lot of grain in it, so you may find two grain bags useful.

For the all grain version, do you mash with all of the grain or do you steep the specialty grains first, then disgaurd, like in the extract recipe?
Christopher Kerns on Jan 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: All at once. You want to extract all of the starch to convert it to sugar. Keep at it. You will love all grain so much more than extract. It’s intimidating at first, but becomes really easy

Best Recipe to date
I have brewed this multiple times and its always a hit. Just go easy on the hazelnut flavoring. Start with a small amount and work your way up to taste

Over The Top!!!
Just to let you all know. This is now one of my wife's favorite recipes. This is hands down. One of the best recipes I have ever made. I have been instructed that it would be a state of time to make nothing less than ten gallon batches. Highly recommended if you like chocolate, hazelnut and coffee.

My first all-grain brew. My son gave me this kit last Christmas. Brewed it in January. I bought a bottle of the commercial brew and did a side-by-side tasting with my son. Mine was a bit less refined tasting but it has mellowed considerably over the months and will now hold its own against the "genuine" article.

Perfect winter brew.
First off, this was my first all grain kit from More Beer, and I was very impressed at the quality of it. They even include a tablet of worfloc! and they also have some good brewing info with the kit.

On to the beer, it is a fantastic tasting recipe, I will probably try it again next fall though I will probably cut the hazelnut flavoring down slightly to allow balance better with the chocolate and roastyness of the porter. I used the Safale S-04 at 65 degrees.

I can't believe this has only been reviewed twice.
Full bodied, nice chocolate and coffee flavors, light handed on the nut flavor.
I have brewed this one several times, each time omitting the hazelnut and adding other things, such as vanilla, or cinnamon, or Peppers. Great Recipe.

good, full-bodied beer
I hadn't ever used any flavor extract before this kit, but was surprised at how well the hazelnut flavor turned out. Brew this if you want something really full-bodied (mash at higher temp). Sweet, chocolatey, sticky, it's a damn good dessert beer.
