I forgot to add the 15 peppercorns. Can I add them later? Do they need to boil?

I'm sure that beer would be tasty, as is. But it's really more of an APA on the darker side of the SRM range. I would add some chocolate malt, maybe some dark Munich too. You want some darker, maltier flavors in there. At least, that's how I like my AAAs.
Search for Jamil's Evil Twin recipe; it's pretty much a perfect example of an AAA. I've got it on tap right now.
I was toying with adding a little chocolate last night but wasn't sure if it would muck up the flavor profile. Maybe i will do a 10 gallon batch and steep the chocolate on the side and do one with and one without just to see which is better. It will give me a great excuse to brew 10 gallons
I think that's a great idea. Then you can better tailor future recipes to your own tastes.
