Will be brewing this recipe soon and was wondering if anyone ever cold steep coffee grounds and maybe added some vanilla bean to the secondary...
I'm shooting for a Vanilla Coffee Porter.... wasnt sure if those who have tried the recipe would recommend not adding coffee or vanilla bean.
All feedback is much appreciated

I used a cold toddy for my coffee porter. I didn't use Ed's recipe but mine is very similar. I added the coffee toddy & vanilla to the 2ndary w/ mine. You can add your coffee to either the secondary or keg. Depending on how big of a batch you're brewing you will want to do a small amount of coffee; I wanted a very subtle taste of coffee so I only added about 10oz to a 5gal batch.

Hope this helps.

anybody ever tried cold steeping the dark grains in this recipe. the last two dark beers i brewed came out kinda harsh tasting, and i heard gordon strong suggest it on an old episode of the brewing network. mostly i'm just trying to avoid messing with my water chemistry.

Just cracked open my first bottle. This is probably the finest porter I have ever tasted!! Followed the recipe exactly how Ed did it, with the exception of adding 2 vanilla beans to the secondary. Amazing quality brew, very chewy with incredible aromas! Must brew this again!!

Brewed this beer last weekend. Very happy with how the brew went. Wort was DARK and clear leaving the kettle.

Pitched Nottingham Tuesday evening, and found this on my way to work this morning.

Lol,
That looks like my first one!
I also brewed this last week and will be doing another batch this weekend. One for the keg and one for the bottles.
This porter is soooooo good!

Hi Ed, what is the efficiency of your setup? And what pre and post boil gravity do you get with this recipe? I want to do this as my second all grain batch and want to try to match it to yours as close as possible.
