boil 2 gallons water and add the extract syrup and the dextrose. bag your Chocolate malt and mash it for 45 min to an hour. Add to 3 gallons cold water and pitch the yeast. Every pro homebrewer tells you that it has to be a within 10 degrees of 90 to pitch the yeast...beer is a centuries old libation, and there were no candy thermometers or otherwise when beer was first made. take your chances and pitch the yeast. Put the lid on your tub and the airlock and let 'er rip!

Put it in the secondary after a week, let it clear up...thats all. It may take 1 week, it may take 3. Remember that the longer your beer is in contact with trub, the more off flavors your beer takes on.

Bottle it when you're ready. Carbonate for 5-8 days, chill, open and enjoy!
