Chocolate flavor extract adds a rich chocolate flavor to styles such as Porters and Stouts. Paired with cherries, the Chocolate flavor extract produces an interesting Cherry Chocolate aroma and flavor in darker beers.
Fruit extracts can accentuate the flavors of fruit already introduced during prior fermentation operations, raising the intensity of the flavors and aromas. If a beer brewed with chocolate needs a little extra oomph, add small amounts of Chocolate Extract to the beer until the correct flavor profile is reached.
Flavor Extracts offer ease and convenience for adding fruit flavors to beer, wine, mead or cider. Flavor extracts can be added prior to packaging. Gently stir the extract into the beverage without introducing oxygen, take a sample and taste. If enough fruit flavor is present, bottle or keg the beverage. If not, add in additional ounce(s), stir and repeat the process to achieve the desired flavor and aroma intensity. Each extract bottle label provides recommended dosing amounts as guidance.
