Default Coffee Stout Recipe Critique

Here's the recipe I plan on brewing this weekend... Note my efficiency setting. I am getting my own mill soon, the one at the LHBS sucks.

Thoughts? I am going to cold brew coffee and add to secondary. Chinook might be a better stout hop, but I have TONS of Centennial at home.

Default Yummy....

Sounds delicious. Filtering cold brewed coffee was a PITA for me. I ran it through a coffee filter and it took about 45 mins to filter a .5 gal. of java. I had to continuosly stir with a spoon. That being said my Longwinded Stout(Choco, coffee, oatmeal) was really a great brew. If I could figure out a better way to filter I'd do it again.

That is a lot of dark roasted malts for an average gravity beer, plus you are adding more roasted flavors with the coffee addition. You can still use a mix of the three malts, but I would cut back to 1.25-1.5 lbs. I would keep the whole pound of roasted barley and decrease the choco and black patent. Toss is a little more 2-row to keep your gravity where you want it with your system.

I would get rid of the black malt altogether and put coffee malt in place of it. That might give you all the coffee flavor you want. If it isn't enough you can always add that cold pressed coffee post fermentation.
