i am far from an expert at brewing, but maybe lose the coffee? i feel like it would take away from clean sweet mint bourbon flavours i associate with a mint julep
although, i suppose it's what you're shooting for
if i were trying to make a mint julep beer, i'd shoot for a pale/brown ale with 'minty' hops and then add the bourbon/vanilla, and maybe dry-mint it

Thx for reply. Yeah I thought about an ale format but after tasting quite a few oak bourbon stouts it was what I wanted as the base. I'm going off of Founders KBS a little here with the coffee. Any thoughts on yeast?

with all the flavours going on there, i'd imagine you'd want a neutral yeast?

Should I mash any of these grains? I'd do a mini due to lack of equipment.
