Does 3 weeks seem sufficient for primary? Skipping second fermentation.

Seems like enough time to me. I flip 1.060 beers in two weeks, actually.

Dingemans Biscuit Malt is a toasted Malt that provides a warm bread or biscuit (Saltine Cracker) flavour & aroma. It will also lend a garnet-brown colour. Use 5-15% maximum. No enzymes. so must be mashed with malts having surplus diastatic power.

Does that mean I shouldn't have used this without mashing, or does my liquid malt extract make up for it? Why is this so?

cold brewed coffee for 11 hours in 47 oz of sterile water. Carbonated to a volume of 2.72. Bottled today. Tastes quite exquisite at bottling. Coffee type was mocha. produced total volume of 22.6 liters.

Holy F@ck this beer is amazing after 9 days in the bottle...I'm sure it will get better. I HIGHLY recommend this recipe. Definitely more of a porter than a stout

Morning Delaney,

I am really interested in trying out this recipe. (In fact I can hardly wait)

I just had a question before I got started (hopefully brewing today)...

Please let me know if I am understanding this properly:
For the liquid extract schedule...
Put hops in ... Wait 10 minutes ... Then Add the dark?
Finish schedule , then at 60 minutes add the pale to finish it ?

I just don't want to make a silly mistake!

Also thinking about adding cocoa powder, any suggestions on that?

Any of your time is highly appreciated !

Cheers,
ROMULAN

No I think I did it the other way around....

Pale liquid = ~1/5 of total extract at the beginning of your 60 minute boil(at 60 mins)
Dark Liquid extrat = ~4/5 of total extract in the last 10 minutes of boil (at 10 mins)

it's a countdown

I can't remember the science behind it but I can tell you that a better quality product will be achieved if you add the majority of your malt extract towards the end of the boil.


Let me know how it turns out...This is the best chocolate coffee porter recipe I've tried.
