In this talk we assume you already know what the basic steps of chocolate making are and have maybe even tried it yourself. We'll talk and taste through a few ways that chocolate making at home can go wrong and how to fix them at each step of the process. You'll leave knowing the answers to: How does under or over roasting beans affect your chocolate's flavor? Is a low temp for a long time tastier than a high temp for a short time? How does under or over refining affect flavor? How does short or long conching affect flavor? How does your sugar time affect flavor? How can you adjust your next batch if you're noticing one of these problems? Finally, we'll share a method used at Dandelion Chocolate to get feedback on an experiment so you can use more than just your gut to improve your home made chocolate.
