Has anyone added espresso or coffee to this recipe? I brewed it last year and thought it was
too mild for an RIS (maybe because I used 350L instead of 500L roasted barley) so was thinking
of adding so...

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

Friday night I tried my hand at kettle souring. After the boil I cooled the wort to ~85F and

temp for 24 h...
