If the coffee is to taste, pull it and condition it in bottles or kegs.

I put mine on cocoa nibs, coffee and bourbon barrel chips, all soaked in bourbon. Once the flavor was where I wanted it, or thought I wanted it, I pulled it and kegged it.

I tossed mine directly in the keg and chilled it. It's been in there for a little while. A little over a month at 36*. It's just now starting to mellow and taste pretty good. Coffee was out of it's mind strong and upfront. Chocolate now is starting to take the lead, and the bourbon and oak is softening around the edges a bit.

I'm tempted to pull it out of the keezer and let it sit for another month at room temp to speed up the aging process, and to make room in the keezer for other kegs I can drink faster. This big guy is just taking up space waiting to mellow.

However, I will say, that it does taste good now, and has a helluva head to when I pour it. Smells great, and it's gonna be good around the holidays for sure.

I've never brewed a big beer like this before and need to get my feet wet. Thanks to any and all that answer my questions. It's much appreciated.
1> I am planning on going at least 6 months. Probably longer.

2> Add them at the same time at the beginning.

Thanks! I thought this stout would take about 6 to 8 months but wasn't sure.

I am planning on doing this this weekend, but instead of brewed coffee I plan on soaking some whole beans in a really peaty scotch to try and pull a touch of wood into the mix. Can't wait, looks delicious.

Brewed this weekend. Ended up at 1.089. Not complaining.

Checked today and the airlock was bubbling like a champ.

All those oils from the chocolate will kill the krausen, which is exactly why I used a bucket for this one. So, nothing to worry about there!

Yeah that is the gist of what I got after reading the thread.

Now for a question on aging, I really would like to have this guy drinkable by mid November. Reading the comments it sounds like the coffee needs sometime to mellow out. What do you think of skipping the second coffee addtion?

Dumb Question - How do you 'cold brew' this coffee and how do you keep it sanitized before adding it to the secondary?

Everything I read on this was to combine the grounds and water and let it sit at room temperature for 8 - 24 hours then strain but this just seems like a recipe for infection.

There's actually a couple ways but one of the best I have heard is done with a French Press. Grind the proper amount of coffee and fill the press with the proper amount of water, fit the press as usual and toss in the fridge for 24 hours. After the 24hr period press and pour the coffee. There's someone at my work place that does this every day.

I'd suggest santizing the press and plunger along with boiling the water you're planning to use.
