I lightly crush 2oz of espresso beans in plastic bag with a hammer and put them in a hop bag.
Then I put that in the keg or secondary for 24 hours and take it out. Initially there isn't a
ton of coffe...

I brewed an Imperial Stout and dry beaned it with 2oz of lightly crushed espresso for 24 hours
just before kegging. The beer is carbed now, but I didn't get enough espresso flavor out of it.
The beer ...

Live in Texas and leave the mash tun in the garage during the summer months :) . I did this
last month and only lost 5 degrees in 24 hours.

Has anyone added espresso or coffee to this recipe? I brewed it last year and thought it was

Do you think the low pH from kettle souring caused brett to be slow? I recently pitched
multiple dregs containing brett into a kettle soured batch and pH was around 3.2 by the time I
was able to stop ...

It's currently sitting on 7lb of apricots and I'm about 2 weeks from kegging it. Pre fruit it

Glad it turned around for you. I've attempted 2 Saison Brett beers and both have failed.

No specialty malts. I pitched an active starter of US05 late last night so we'll see. Not sure

I brewed an IPA (mashed at 154F) 2 weeks ago with an OG of 1.063 and pitched 1 package of
London Ale III (no starter). To say fermentation was less than vigorous is an understatement.
