Default Newbie Question

Hi All,

New to this forum. I have a question. I have a standard Irish stout in the primary fermenter right now. Planning to rack it to secondary this evening. I want to experiment a little and add 10-15 ozs of brewed espresso to the secondary with the stout. Has anyone done this or see any reason it would come out horrible?

Or does anyone have any other suggestions for adding espresso to the secondary?

i think that would be just fine, but i've never done it. there have been many espresso beers made here, tho. you may be able to find some of them with a search.

I guess it depends on how much you like espresso. Remember, once it is in there, it can't come out.

I made an espresso porter (well komodo dragon porter to be exact) I just added coffee ground for french press at the five minute mark left in the boil. I suppose you could add it in the secondary too. just make sure you get the coffee to a ripping boil for at least a minute or two. Im betting you would need on the higher end. I'd say two cups of espresso (i put in a whole cup of french press coffee)
