68F is not low...especially if you are not using a cooling method like a waterbath. In my opinion, if you pitch enough yeast, you should only use 68F as a diaceytl rest temperature at end of fermentation. Low-mid 60's are your friend for most ale yeasts.

I always have used secondary's in the past, but I'm just trying to save a step.
I don't generally do a secondary, as I feel this is one more chance to mess the beer up with infection or oxidation. I treat the keg as my secondary, as it's easy to blow-off anything that settles out.

When I made my version of this beer, I let it sit in primary for 4 weeks just to make sure the yeast has had time to clean things up.

Cheers,

I started this brew 10/12/2012 and had an OG of 1.079 @ 80F and when I checked it 10/18/2012 the SG was 1.018 @ 75F. I tasted a sample and the coffee was STRONG. My question is, does the coffee mellow out after time? I haven't added the 2oz of Kona yet. Any thoughts? I enjoy Founder's Breakfast Stout but this tastes like too much coffee to me.

Coffee will mellow out over time. Mines just becoming drinkable, and it's around the 4 month mark I think?

Just transferred over to secondary after 2 weeks in primary. SG is 1.020 (I brewed the extract version, which is where that recipe came in) so It's just over 7%, which is fine for me. I'd love it to be around 8%, but I knew going in that wasn't really a reality.

Those of you who added a few whole beans soaked in rum to the secondary, did you have success with this? I know most people have done the 2oz cold-brewed at bottling, but I saw a few people had done the whole bean. Just curious how that worked out.

I brewed this up this morning....used Galena and nugget for my hops since that is what I had on hand....additions equaled out to 60IBU...OG 1.085 which is the range I was shooting for...

Hydrometer sample was good

Question about aroma? Strange enough I didn't get much...I was expecting a lot of chocolate on the nose but didn't get that...aroma was pretty neutral...thoughts ????

If you added the coffee, you should have a pretty distinct coffee and chocolate aroma.

My founders clone has been in the secondary for one week and I can't tell if this is an infection or something else. Anyone else see this on top of their secondary?

You'll get some visuals in secondary just like primary, there's a lot of crap in there. Could be minor yeast activity also.

Looks normal. Mine was ugly until I kegged it. It's probably still ugly. The beer just plain needs to sit.. Anyone brewing this need not be in a hurry. Especially if you used the full amount of coffee and added to the boil.

Ok thanks. It was my first all grain so I didn't want it to be bad.
