What has happened to this thread?? I'm kind of interested in the difference between cold brewing coffee in water separately, and racking cool mead onto grounds. Essentially one is doing a water steep while the other is doing a similar thing, with alcohol and lower pH in the mix.

Being an ex-pretentious coffee geek, I can say that cold brewing coffee will lower the amount of oils released from the bean, and will give you a smoother stronger coffee than brewing hot, plus the caffeine levels will be a ton more. I can't on the other hand give any advice on the ph levels. I would assume that letting the grounds steep in the mead will help the favors blend better, but I'm not sure if the alcohol content will affect the steeping process.

I hope it turned out better than my coffee mead did. I made the mistake of brewing the coffee first. The final product had no real coffee flavor at all. I like honey in my coffee. So I'll try it again. But next time I'll add the grounds to secondary instead of using brewed coffee in the primary.
