Anyone ever had Kona Brewing Co.'s Pipeline Porter? The stuff is awesome. I was just curious if anyone had a good recipe for the stuff. For those of you who don't know what it is, it's a coffee porter that's just awesome.
This is how they describe it:
"Pipeline Porter is dark chocolate in color with a rich roasted malt flavor and smooth coffee finish. Its earthy complexity comes from its diverse blends of premium malts and barley. This celebration of malt unites with freshly roasted 100% Kona coffee grown at Cornwell Estate on Hawaii's Big Island, lending a unique roasty aroma and flavor. A delicate blend of hops rounds out this palate-pleasing brew."
This is what they claim is in it...
Malt: Premium 2-Row Pale, Carapils, Victory, Caramel 80, Extra Special, Chocolate and Dark Chocolate malts, Roasted Barley
Hops: Horizon, Millennium, Warrior, Perle
Alcohol: 5.4% by volume (4.3% wt.)
Extras: freshly roasted 100% Kona coffee
I"ve never done any recipe experimentation... But with some advice,
I may have to try.
Do you think they'd be adding cracked whole bean coffee during the boil or just some fresh brewed Joe?
Any advice would be helpful.
