Plan on winging a Porter next week. This will be my last extract brew before flipping over to AG (yay!)

I'm pretty sure I'm going to add some ground coffee beans to the secondary. Not sure how much yet, but after doing some reading about 2oz seems right. The hops I have in this recipe are what I have on hand from the garden. I think Nugget is used in Sierra Nevada's Porter, not sure about Cascade. If you have any hop, or any other suggestions fire away.

I'm going to bookmark this and try it for my next batch! My fiance loves coffee porters and I love it when she drinks good beer!

BTW, looks like we are from the same neck of the woods.

I did end up doing a coffee porter, but not this one. I suggest adding the coffee to the secondary just before bottling/kegging. There are lots of threads about how to brew the coffee or just adding beans. I did a cold brew over night in a french press. This type of coffee is stronger with less tannins.

Good Luck!
