    Sanitizing Cacao/Cocoa Nibs

    We're planning on adding a couple of pounds of cacao nibs into our fermenter after fermentation has slowed down. What's the best way to sanitize them? I'd rather not dip them in chemicals, but I will if that's the only way to do it.

    As a homebrewer, I would just soak them in vodka for awhile, then add to the fermenter. But we're not really allowed to do that, correct?

    I would soak them on rum. Your not going to be adding enough booze to bum up the abv so I wouldn't really worry about it.
