    About to brew my own recipe for the first time, help me avoid an obvious mistake?

    I'm currently designing my first recipe for next weekend and I'd like some feedback as I'm sure I should probably make some tweaks.

    New from Oregon (long-time lurker)

    Cacao Nibs and Coffee Beans Addition

    Hey guys, I brewed a White Stout last week and the recipe calls for cacao nibs and whole coffee beans addition after fermentation. I'm trying to skip the secondary part and I'm wondering how I can achieve this. Option #1 Adding nibs and coffee beans directly into primary after fermentation...

    Hello all, I have 5 gallons of a Brown that is in the primary and ready to switch to secondary. However, I plan to add some hazelnut coffee to it. The catch is, it is already ground and it is only 4oz of ground coffee. How do you recommend I add this to secondary without risking...
