The water volume isn't terribly important. You want enough so you get good extraction of the coffee flavors into the water, but not too much to dilute your batch down. Maybe 16 oz of water.

The water volume was going to be my next question. For the flameout addition, I had used 2 oz dried weight and let it steep for 10 minutes before starting my IC process.

For the bottling addtion, I was very curious because I was thinking of my standard coffee brewing measurements - 2 oz of dry coffee is ~ 12 tablespoons (or 6 scoops for me). That's six 6oz cups of coffee for me to drink! I use the 2 tblsp per 6 oz of water ratio. So, I'd have at least 32-35 oz of coffee.

I think I'll go for the pint instead as it was mentioned so I don't kill my current 9.1%

With only 16 oz of water used, this baby's gonna be THICK.

Yeah, I wouldn't drink it at that strength, but it's going into 5 gallons, so it will be diluted.

Just pulled the first sample from my keg. It's really good. I'm gonna get a 4 pack to try side/side. I think this will continue to improve and is still a bit young but I'd say very drinkable by Christmas which is what I was going for. SWMBO is already digging it half a glass in.

We've been drinking this at Christmas parties the last few days. It's been a big hit all around. Thanks again for the recipe.

The original is awesome at 1 year (had it on tap aged one year by founders). If you can hold off on it, it's worth it.

I filtered out the grounds when I moved from kettle to primary vessel. I usually use a strainer when making that move to get out the hops, etc. I let it steep for 10 minutes then did the filter step.
