Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: Wyeast 1084 Activator (Irish Ale)   
Yeast Starter: None   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5   
Original Gravity: 1.066   
Final Gravity: 1.014   
IBU: 58   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: Black   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7 d @ 72˚F   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 15 d @ 72˚F   
Tasting Notes: Strong Coffee (i used 6 oz. in the original recipe), sweet oats, mild vanilla.   

Grain Bill:
12 lb. Maris Otter (Crisp)
2 lb. Flaked Oats
2 lb. British Chocolate
1 lb. Caramel 80L
0.5 lb. Black Patent

Hops:
2 oz. Kent Goldings (4.5% AA) @ 60 min.
2 oz. KG @ 20 min.

Other:
2 vanilla beans pitted and chopped, soaked in small amount of vodka for 1 week
3-4 oz. cracked coffee beans (whatever roast you like)

Strike Water:
5.9 gal. @ 164˚F - 60 min. mash @ 152˚F

Sparge:
3.8 gal. @ 170˚F until 6.5 gal. wort collected.

Boil:
60 min total.
1st hop addition @ beginning
2nd hop addition @ 20 min. to go.

After primary fermentation, rack beer onto prepared vanilla beans and vodka mixture.

Approx. 4 days prior to bottling, add cracked coffee beans directly into secondary (really no concerns about infection with such a small amount).
***Be cautious with both the amount of coffee you use and the length of time you steep it. I used 6 oz. and steeped for 4 days the first time and could barely taste anything beyond the coffee. Cutting it in half significantly balanced things out.
