Breakfast Brown Ale
 
Breakfast Brown Ale – 5 Gallon Batch

MALTS

6 lbs. Pale Malt Extract (60%)
1 lbs. Flaked Oat (10%)
1 lb. Lactose (10%)
lb. Chocolate Malt (5%) *added last 15 minutes of steep*
lb. Victory Malt (5%)
lb. Cara-pills (5%)
lb. Crystal 80L (5%)


HOPS

oz. Northern Brewer (60 min.)
oz. Northern Brewer (30 min.)


YEAST

S-04


ADJUNCTS

4 Cups Cold-Brewed Coffee (When wort gets below 80)
1 oz. Vanilla Extract (When wort gets below 80)

*UPDATE* probably won't matter, but I figured the IBU's to be 15.

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!

How much coffee grounds went into that 4 cups of cold brew?

Give or take...right around a sh!t ton. Haha. Probably around 2 cups of grounds. I like my coffee ;)
