Default Wanted: Pipeline Porter All Grain Recipe

Hey all,
Anyone ever had Kona Brewing Co.'s Pipeline Porter? The stuff is awesome. I was just curious if anyone had a good recipe for the stuff. For those of you who don't know what it is, it's a coffee porter that's just awesome.

This is how they describe it:
"Pipeline Porter is dark chocolate in color with a rich roasted malt flavor and smooth coffee finish. Its earthy complexity comes from its diverse blends of premium malts and barley. This celebration of malt unites with freshly roasted 100% Kona coffee grown at Cornwell Estate on Hawaii's Big Island, lending a unique roasty aroma and flavor. A delicate blend of hops rounds out this palate-pleasing brew."

This is what they claim is in it...
Malt: Premium 2-Row Pale, Carapils, Victory, Caramel 80, Extra Special, Chocolate and Dark Chocolate malts, Roasted Barley

Hops: Horizon, Millennium, Warrior, Perle

Alcohol: 5.4% by volume (4.3% wt.)

O.G.: 13.5

IBU: 30

Extras: freshly roasted 100% Kona coffee

I"ve never done any recipe experimentation... But with some advice,
I may have to try.

Do you think they'd be adding cracked whole bean coffee during the boil or just some fresh brewed Joe?

Any advice would be helpful.

Thanks!

Joe

I like that stuff too, and have been looking for a good coffee porter recipe. There is a bunch of info here on different ways to add coffe, but most of it is for coffee stouts. I was thinking about just adding some fresh brewed and cooled coffee to the primary, along with the top-off water. Some people throw in fresh grounds 10 to 0 minutes before flameout. I really just don't know how much to add to get a noticeable coffee flavor, but without drinking 1/2 coffee 1/2 beer.

I just tried this stuff this weekend. It tasted great with a nice slice of pumpkin pie!

Thanks guys! Now if we can only come up with a recipe. LOL I have a book that may help give some input on putting my two favorite beverages together into one... I might just have to try brewing up my own concoction.

MMMM Pipeline Porter!

just did the tour last week - the guy said they added whole bean kona coffee in a mesh bag into the fermenter.

edit: I guess if you don't grind it and boil it, it only gives the flavor of coffee and not the caffeine - he said you had to drink 40somthing pints of it to equal one cup of coffee.

I just threw together something really quick. Should be pretty good. Not sure about the quantities that they use it in, but I incorporated most of what they used.

This is for 5.5 gallons at 70% efficiency.

9 lb. pale
1 lb chocolate (I'd do 75/25 on the light/dark chocolate)
.5 lb carapils
.5 lb 80L
.5 lb Victory
.25 lb Extra Special
.15 lb roasted barley

For hops, I didn't use millenium. They've got four high alpha acid hops in there, and I'm betting they're all at bittering stage. I went with:

.25 warrior (60)
.25 horizon (60)
.25 perle (60)

that's 30 IBUs, or pretty damn close.

White Labs English Ale might be good, but if you want a really clean profile, 001 would be fine too. As for the coffee, the whole bean in the fermenter sounds like a good idea. I'd cold brew. I like how it turns out. Just normally brewed coffee works too, but it seems to be a little too acidic. I would add to taste.

Seriously, I did that in about 5 minutes, but it seems like it might work for what you want.

I checked with Kona Brewing Co. and they aren't releasing anything to the public as it is proprietary LOL. Too bad I already found the ingredient list elsewhere. LOL

Well I think this recipe might have to do. I won't be brewing it for a little while though. I have to gather more bottles. :-) Thanks!
