Looks good, congrats! I love coffee porters and stouts! Was it bitter at all? I notice you had 40 IBU's and recently read that when doing coffee beers, to keep the IBU's low since the coffee and hops are both bitter, though you only used a 1/2 ounce of coffee.

The beer isn't too bitter. The EKG are pretty smooth on this beer. The Coffee was cold brewed so the bitterness is very low and I need to edit that, it was 5 oz of coffee, not .5oz.
I used Starbucks Dark Espresso Roast coffee for it.

What do you mean coffee was cold brewed? You just added coffee grounds to cold water and let it sit over night.....or brewed coffee the regular way and let it sit in fridge until ready for use?

New to this and have been intrigued to brew a coffee flavored beer

Take ground coffee and mix it with water, then let sit overnight. Filter with a coffee filter and add to the beer for a few days before you chill, carb and serve (I added it once I kegged).
I did 20 oz of water for the 5 ounces of coffee. It's a great way to get the coffee flavor without the harshness of coffee.

Just wondering if you sanitized the coffee in anyway before adding it to keg. I plan on adding it to a secondary before bottling.

You can boil the water you are going to use, or buy some bottled water from the store. I sanitized the Tupperware I was using with Star San, and used bottled water, and that was enough.

Secondary would be best. Maybe for a couple days before you bottle. Longer shouldn't hurt it at all though

shameless plug: next time, don't use starbucks, go to www.moonbeanscoffees.com we roast small batches daily, the freshest coffee you can get. And if you mention HBT in the order, I will roast it for you that day!
