I'm going to let it settle for a week, and then dose it with gelatin. In a month l'll bottle, and start drinking in mid-March.
Whenever I have used gelatin as a fining I perceive that it strips away some of the flavour. Have you ever noticed this occurrence?

Re: Strong American Porter

Looks like a good recipe, I too like to use Panella. What was the corn addition for, to lighten the body?

Re: 2-2-2 keg to bottles

If your intention is to bottle the lot then you should just transfer from the fermenter to a bottling bucket and bottle from there. I don't think that you will want to be bottling from a pressure barrel that has been sat for two weeks.

Cocoa does indeed contain fat which can be detrimental to head retention.
