Good afternoon brewers.
I stumbled upon this thread and being that I just finished a keg of my delicious Coffee and Cream Stout I couldn't resist. Start with a good sweet stout recipe (I Dont have my grain bill memorized and will update later on). However for the coffee aspect, I brewed 96oz of coffee via a French press and I used fresh ground Kona Coffee. I added the brewed coffee to my boil with 20 minutes remaining. The end result was a slightly more mild flavor of Founders Breakfast stout. IMHO, adding brewed coffee gives a more rich flavor and less yo the nose than aging on whole beans. Just my 2 cents
Bottled: Pony Boy IPA, Broken Wand IIPA
Kegged: Breakfast of Champions Coffee and Cream Imperial Stout
Upcoming: Heartbreak Rx doppelbock (fresh hops), Nugget/Citra IIPA
