I suggest getting one. Great for coffee, fruit teas, and I even use it to jack up my IPA's by infusing hops with it. Fun tool to have when brewing.

I hot brewed a triple strong pot and dumped it straight into a carbed keg. Vastly improved the beer, which was a strong hoppy stout to begin with, so bitterness or harshness may have been masked.

I used a live woodchuck to weight mine down, but he was a PITA to sanitize.

That's awesome, I imagine sanitizing a woodchuck would be hard!

Nah, maybe a little more work than marbles, it is fitting them with the scuba gear and training them to sit still that takes the real work. That and fitting a full grown woodchuck in scuba gear through the mouth of a carboy......

What's awesome is I can envision a woodchuck in scuba gear chilling in a carboy!

Default Kohana cold brew coffee concentrate

Has anybody ever used this stuff?

http://www.kohanacoffee.com/collections/cold-brew

I'm thinking of using it in an upcoming breakfast stout, either pouring it into the secondary or the keg. Seems pretty ideal: cold brewed, so no worries about too much bitterness. Concentrated so you wouldn't have to add as much and make your beer watery. And it should be pretty sanitary, so you could just crack one open and pour it in. What do you think?
