Turned out really good. The coffee aroma and flavor are perfect. This is what I'll be doing for all coffee beers in future because it worked out so well.
Here's the base recipe:
1#-Roasted Wheat (550 SRM)
1#-Special Roast (50 SRM)
8oz.-Dingemans Special B
Single infusion mash at 152F for 60min. Batch Sparge.
1oz. Galena at 60.
Fermented with US-05.
Super smooth, sweet but not cloying. 6oz. was the perfect amount, and the base beer and coffee flavors meld perfectly. So happy about it.
