Chocolate Bochet Mead (MeadDay #02)

Chocolate Bochet Braggot

Last week I made a Chocolate Bochet Mead. For those that doesn’t know, a Bochet is what mead is called when you boil the honey to caramelise it. I boiled the Acacia honey for 10 minutes.

I had cold mashed chocolate malts over night. I baked 100 gr of cacao nibs in the oven for 10 minutes.

5.5 litres

OG 1065

Should come out around 9-10%ABV

OG 1060
Original Gravity 1060
Roasted Cacao Nibs
Roasted Cacao Nibs

Conditioning

I will probably age it on Vanilla and maybe Cinnamon for two months before bottling.
