Brewed up a 3 gallon version of this on Sunday. Rough brew day, but everything seems to have worked out. Checked on it 16 hours after pitching and the airlock was going crazy. Switched to a blowoff tube, just in case, but haven't really needed it. Activity is still pretty high, but the krausen hasn't quite made it's way out of the carboy. The coffee aroma coming off of this thing is amazing. can't wait to taste this.

Again, BYO's Replicator numbers didn't match up to Founder's website, so I adjusted. Specifically, the IBUs are waaaay off.
How do you make "cold brewed" coffee?
Can i just brew A cup of coffee normally, & dump it in at kegging?

Use a cup of cold water and the amount of coffee you want. Then throw it in the fridge to steep.

What is the benefit of this? As opposed to normal hot brewing?

I believe it makes it less bitter but I do not know personally. Hopefully someone with more knowledge can chime in for you.

Correct, cold brewing reduces the astringency of the coffee. You will get a smooth coffee taste without the harsh bitterness.

I would consider adding a small amount of Chocolate malt OR some Carafa III. The Carafa malts are de-bittered, but can add some roast character. I use about 8oz Carafa and 4oz Chocolate in lighter ~5% beers for a touch of dark character, but to remain smooth.

I shy'd away from cold extracted coffee in my beer this year. Last year when I brewed this beer, I found a green-pepper-like character came out of the beer after a couple months; only some people are sensitive to it, but I believe it's some oxidation in the coffee and beer. When you add coffee or cold extract with standard non-boiled water, you are adding some oxygen to the beer. You may consider boiling the water before cold extract to reduce the oxygen content. YMMV.

I was going to comment on this subject anyway, so it's good timing. Many pages back I mentioned on my beer I used the flameout boil additions, but "dry beaned" the beer in the primary fermenter with 4oz whole bean coffee.

The beer was very coffee forward when young and still was at 4-5 months old. The coffee has began to subside as the beer matures; it's coming into it's own now.

Cheers,
~Adam

I used regular coffee out of my keurig. Tastes great, seems to be no more bitter than when i cold brewed it. Side by side i couldn't tell a difference between mine and the real deal.

I brewed this about a month and a half ago and opened the first one yesterday. I did both coffee additions, and I don't feel it was too much. I reduced the base malt to 14lbs, and ended up at around 7.8% abv. LOVING this recipe - it's going to be tough to save a few for aging.
