  1. Great tips! Do you have any starting point for the tincture regarding amounts? For a 20L batch. Thanks!

    • It depends on the beer but here are a few I’ve had success with.

      Vanilla Beans – 2 to 3 beans
      Cocoa Nibs – At least 4 oz
      Coconut – 2 to 4 oz
      Cinnamon – 1 stick at most
      Wood – Around 2 oz depending on the species
      Citrus peel and peppers should be experimented with caution as too much can turn your brew into either a cleaner flavor or a mouth scorcher. I haven’t found the perfect amount for either yet but will say ancho chilies can add a lot of great flavor without too much heat.
