Mash Notes: Two step profile with a protein rest for mashes with unmodified grains or adjuncts.

Notes: I mashed high to counteract the D90 syrup addition (late addition not truly after the boil). I had won a bunch of syrup due to a homebrew comp and thought it'd go well in this beer. It added a nice layer of complexity. In the boil I added 1oz each of hershey cocoa regular and extra dark. Then in secondary I took 8oz of coffee beans. It was a blend of a malawi, tanzanian peaberry, and sumatra beans. I bought them at the local roaster. Any coffee you like should work. I then added cold water to my french press and let it sit on my counter top for a few days while the beer fermented. Then I added the press pot coffee to the fermentor as it finished up and began to condition. I bottle conditioned with malt extract. One thing about using the cocoa. I found my cocoa wasn't sufficiently settled out and a lot settled in the bottle. It's like a chocolately surprise so if you bottle condition this beer swirl the last bit like a hefe and toss it in you glass. You'll be glad you did.

Also I'd like to mention. I sent this to a friend who loves Founders Breakfast Stout. While this isn't as high an ABV he has been talking this beer up as the best thing since sliced bread. I really like it and will probably continue to brew this fairly regularly. So if you like a strong coffee flavor with nice roasty components this is a nice recipe to try.

"I then added cold water to my french press and let it sit on my counter top for a few days while the beer fermented."

I'm thinking about adding a single espresso bean to each bottle. Did you have any nasty tastes come through using the coffee depending on the coffee's used? Am I correct that you didn't grind the beans, you just soaked them? I'm assuming that not brewing the coffee wouldn't extract the oils, just the flavor. [My theory anyway.]

Thanks for the thoughts. Cheers.

Ooh no, I ground them to french press grind. The cold prevents some of the oil extraction. I got no nastiness and I have incredible foam stability in this beer.
