Copied this quoted post from the Centennial Blonde thread, had a question about it and didn't want to derail anything over there:

Sounds amazing. I'm almost two weeks into primary on Denny's BVP and this might be next.

I've brewed coffee pretty regularly using a press and the grounds float, do you siphon from under the grounds and do your best to avoid the top layer? Do you put the grounds in something?

And without reading the full 27 pages, anyone tried MO instead of 2-row? Make a difference?

I used a coffee grinder set on a pretty coarse setting and just dumped them into the 2-week old primary. When siphoning, I used a pant strainer around the tip of my racking cane.

Nice. Definitely trying this at some point.

Finally got this brew keg and carb'd to perfection. Let me just say, fantastic beer, thanks so much to BM and others here. I followed recipe exactly, omitted Lacto, got a OG of around 1.060, and finished around 1.018 or so. Mashed around 154 with a single batch sparge. Used a yeast starter of a london ale strain I had from my 1st ESB brew. Sat in primary for a few weeks, bada boom. I'm drinking it out of my ceramic stein now, but I'll post a pic out of a pint glass later. Salud.

Any advantage or disadvantage to cold crashing this while in the secondary? I didn't have the equipment to cold crash until my last beer, which was a Belgian pale ale (granted very light in color) but it seemed work very well. Thoughts?

I have to build my pipeline up again. This is next on my list. My 1st porter. I have a # of other items fermenting.

I'm not a big fan of dark beers but my palate had been expanding since I've been brewing for over 1 year now. I was trippin' on my last visit to Bevmo................... picked up 1 of my favorite commercial brews, and was completely let down on how weak it was. Nothing like I remember it. I remember it being so powerful it would knock my socks off. Not anymore! This home brewing has really spoiled me.

BM has quite the reputation on HBT and I'm encouraged since I've brewed a # of his recipes & have never been let down.

Just brewed this with a few changes used 1oz Northdown instead of fuggles and boiled it for the full 60, also added 1 oz ground coffee to the grain bill. Did not add malto dextrin seemed with all the oats i could skip it. Og 1.061 pitched the Safale 04 @78 degrees. Strong fermentation started in 7 hours so far so good well see how it comes out. I guess its a coffee milk porter at this point
