I have 7% coffee! ...another one for long term storage me thinks. Just a bit miffed I used good bottles for it! Good for early morning wake ups on fishing trips or in the afternoon, but not at night - like having triple expressos

Kona will definately be fine, but such a well balanced coffee will probably be hidden in a beer. But by all means, splurge if you must.

This stout isn't real heavy or thick, how much Kona would you suggest I steep? I was thinking about 1/2 lb in enough water to get it all wet for what amounts to roughly 4.25 gallons of stout. Yes, no, maybe?

There are 454 grams in a pound. Dibby used 200 for his undrinkable stout. You're going for 227?

Yeah and my recommendation is 56 grams in 8 ounces of water, of which only once ounce of the coffee is used after steeping for 24 hours in cold water.

I guess a french coffee press would work great for this concept. Boil the water and let cool and add it to a sanitized french coffee press along with 56 grams of freshly ground coffee. Yeah, that's the ticket. Pour out an ounce after a day of steeping.

That was my experience. I made a coffee bock and the coffee totally dominated the beer. Kinda good sipper at first, but then just got to be overkill.
