    Using Oreos

    Yeah so since I split the batch, I have the other half as the base to compare against. I had 32oz of it last night and it's rather nice and head retention is much different, sets up like a creamy Guinness with a slightly darker color. It's the Northern Brewer Place Coffee kit. I tasted the Mix...

    Using Oreos

    If the Oreos were added during the steep/boil would you think things would have gone differently? The cereal was added during initial steep...

    We did a NEIPA with Lucky Charms on saint patrick's day and turned out fantastic, so you never know! Fun to try in moderation right.

    Using Oreos

    Well... It's been 2 weeks in bottle. Honestly hoping it improves with age. The picture without much head below I ended up having vanilla ice cream with, which tasted good and improved overall flavor. Top picture was right after a hard pour, head retention disappears after 30s. Likely some...

    Using Oreos

    Right I was thinking myself that lactose would be a good addition here. How and when would that occur? I had a glass with ice out of the final fermenter before bottling just to see how it was. Sort of reminded me of a thin black russian. If anything it may show me what I should have done, or...

    Using Oreos

    Interesting yes. So the cold crash is to stop any more yeast fermentation right, and then add to flavor after? The .5% extra alc won't we worth it if the taste isn't there and I'm guessing cold crashing would more guarantee the Final Gravity would not change right? It's an experiment anyway...

    Using Oreos

    Started to open a few bottles from the first half of the batch. Not bad, I may infuse the coffee differently next time (did 2oz ground Coffee directly into fermenter with the other 2oz of whole beans left to float). This Oreo infused half batch still has a few more days of bottle conditioning...

    Final reading tonight: 1.010. Calling it DONE. Time to bottle condition see how it shapes up.

    Using Oreos

    Yeah so took it last night and will take it again today. I think it's not moving much at this point, and the increase seems marginal. I would call it at 1.012 (1.014 2 weeks ago) assuming it will read the same today marking 4 total weeks in primary fermenter. 6.3% after 4weeks vs 6.03% after 2...

    Using Oreos

    Been two more weeks now (4 total), bubbling continues every 11s, top of fermenter is the thick layer of cake looking oreo powder that was added, bubbling and popping periodically. At this point I'm unsure whether to leave it alone until bubbling stops, or try and intercept things and transfer...

    Using Oreos

    Ok so update: the carboy is now bubbling away with the coffee stout sitting under the layer of thick chocolate the Oreo powder made. Seems we may have woke the yeast for another round?! Will take the final gravity in 2 weeks or whenever things calm. We shall see. But I was surprised to see...

    Using Oreos

    No turning back now. 1 cup sifted oreo powder in secondary (reused primary carboy vs. using secondary) and separated the batch. Bottle the initial batch and give another 2 weeks for oreo carboy to setup. We shall see!

    Using Oreos

    I currently have my coffee stout at 2 weeks now in the fermenter. I have an Oreo 'gingerbread' house that I crushed up after Christmas. I wanna split the batch, put some amount of the goodness directly into the secondary for another two weeks. What can go wrong? Bad idea or delicious effort?

    Cherry Blonde Ale

    Sounds and looks delicious. Do you recall how you treat the cherries exactly? I'm new to brewing and especially with fruit additions and interested in that process more for this. Thanks
