    smooth coffee stout

    thought I would share, I made a stout kit from midwest lcouple weeks ago, 1 I have brewed many times before. I was going to add some fresh ground cofee. I forgot to add to the boil and added to the fermenter instead. Wow! love it, smooth and not too much coffee taste. btw it was 1/4 cup.:ban:
