Looking to brew up an Irish Stout this weekend, but want to deviate a bit from the box recipe to add some deliciousness. I was thinking of maybe adding some seeped coffee or perhaps maple cubes (all suggestions from friends), however, I don't have much experience with "outside the recipe" brewing.
Here's the ingredients
12 oz Caramel 60L
4 oz roasted barley
4 oz black patent
3.3 Dark LME
2.0 Dark DME
Cascade aroma and bittering hops (.5 oz and 1 oz respectively)
Any suggestions, hints, help would be much appreciated.
