Yes, I brewd it last Fall and it was a winner, except this time I used Dark Cocoa.

light crystal? Want to really be bold with the other grains flavors, taste great.

I give it at least 3-4 weeks to ferment though

Sorry fo the late response


Last year I used 8 cups of brewed starbucks espresso

However once it aged the coffee really bled through, almost intense

SO...this year I only used 4 cups.
It has been aging for around 2 weeks and seems to be nice, I think it needs more time to mellow but it should be good.

What does the brown sugar do opposed to corn sugar?
What taste does molasses impart?
Do either really do anything but up the abv?
