Okay, so I'm brewing a coffee stout tonight. I've got 4 oz. of coffee in 20 oz. boiled of water sitting in a sanitized jar in my fridge. Now, I know you shouldn't boil coffee, so I was wondering what everyone thinks about this:
Since I'm still doing partial mash stuff, using the coffee as part of the top off water? It seems to me like the only other way I could do it would be to add the coffee directly to the kettle at flameout. (Or during the last five minutes or so of the actual boil.)
I boiled the water I made the coffee out of and sanitized the jar, but I'm still worried about infections... Any help would be appreciated!
