My next question would be about keeping this all sanitary. You can boil the water of course, then cool it down to cold brew it... but you can't really sanitize the coffee... right? How about pouring the coffee... use a coffee filter? Should I boil it or something to sanitize it first... or am I being a little too paranoid about contaminating the beer?
The way I did it was by submerging 2 canning jars in a pot of water and bringing it to a boil. Then I sealed them up and let them cool. Once cool, I added the coffee (I don't know of a way to sanitize ground coffee) and left it sealed, in the fridge for a couple days.
When it was time to add it to the brew, I dunked a couple coffee filters in boiling water and lined a sanitized funnel with them and poured the jars (carefully) through.
