This beer started life as a stout, but my homebrew store didn't have the ingredients...then it was a porter because I didn't have any roasted barley...then I found out what a constitutes a brown ale, and realized what I had actually brewed. It is my first time using coffee, and it is very, very good.
I like the look of this for my Christmas brew, how did it turn out?
I think that a pound of lactose was a little much. It turned out a little on the sickly sweet side. I also let my temperature get a little high for the S-04 - around 72-74 degrees - so there was some added sweetness from the esters. I think it could be very good if I took out the Lactose and kept it between 62-65 degrees. Thanks for the interest!
Give or take...right around a sh!t ton. Haha. Probably around 2 cups of grounds. I like my coffee ;)
