All-Grain - Coffee Imperial Stout
I wanted to try uploading a beersmith file.
Every recipe that I found is all typed out nice with notes, but it would be nice to be abe to just download a beersmith file if it looks good.
I got this recipe from BYO magazines web site. It looks worth trying but I haven't done it yet myself. I just wanted to try uploading the file so I picked one that I wanted to type in for myself, but none of my personal recipes are anything I thought would be worth sharing.
I copied the file in text format, and I'm going to attach the file.

Bring to a boil and add 2.5 oz. (71 g) boiling hops. Total boil is 70 minutes. After the boil, turn off the heat and add 1.5 oz. (43 g) finish hops for five minutes. Cool to 70º F (21° C) and ferment with ale yeast.

Let's see if I keep this updated!
