I am new to brewing so I hope this is the place to post this. I brewed a coffee porter on Monday. It's actually just a porter currently. The recipe stated that I should add the coffee at the end of the boil but the research I did made me decide to do otherwise. I've decided to add cold-brewed coffee to the secondary. But here is my dilemma: I want to dry hop for about a week in the primary before I rack to the secondary with the coffee. I have .25 oz cascade and .75 oz hallertauer pellets for dry hopping. Is it ok to dry hop for about a week after fermentation is complete in the primary then rack to secondary with the coffee. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
I will be doing this very soon. I plan to bottle half of my oatmeal stout without coffee, add some cold-steeped coffee to the bottling bucket, then bottle the second half of the batch with the coffee added. This way I can compare flavors.
