Default Another coffee thread

I plan on brewing a coffee stout and was wondering about the coffee addition. My plan is to cold brew the coffee in a french press and add it to the beer after the primary fermentation is complete. The way I see it I will be able to add the coffee a bit at a time until I get the taste I want. Does anybody see any problem with this? Anybody have any other suggestions for me?

I plan on doing this soon as well. You should be fine to just toss it in since coffee is so acidic but I think I'm going to heat the coffee up to 170 just to be safe.

I figured once I had the coffe brewed I would strain it off the grounds and heat for a few minutes to eliminate any organisms that might spoil my brew.

Yes, worked well, no problems other than the beer disappearing from the drinking fridge by my friends.
