1. Does anyone have this already in a program like Brewtarget or beersmith that they want to share?
2. To whoever added coffee how much and when? The plan is to cold brew it.
After discussing with a master roaster at a local coffee shop in Frederick, MD we decided that an extreme espresso blend would go perfectly with the RIS. At about 32oz. I basically did a cold brew with a french press. Boiled the water. Let it cool in the fridge. Added grains and press. Let it sit for a few days in the fridge. Then added directly to the secondary.
