I found a recipe supposedly for Beer Geek Breakfast Stout by Mikkel Bjergsø & Kristian Keller.

The recipe however does not have any coffee in it as the real BGBS does.

Whaddaya think about the receipe?

www.maltbazaren.dk/images/Beer Geek Breakfast klon.pdf

The page referencing the recipe states the following:

The kit contains detailed recipe, malt and hops to approx. 25 liter. 25 liters. The recipe requires knowledge of allgrain-brewing. Besides this, use: Whitelabs WLP001 California ale Brewer's yeast.
NOTE: This malt is NOT rolled

Here is what BYO had awhile back:

7.80 lb Pilsner (2 Row) Ger (2.0 SRM) Grain 42.8 %
2.20 lb Oats, Flaked (1.0 SRM) Grain 12.1 %
2.20 lb Oats, Malted (1.0 SRM) Grain 12.1 %
2.00 lb Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM) Grain 11.0 %
1.13 lb Brown Malt (65.0 SRM) Grain 6.2 %
1.13 lb Caramunich Malt (56.0 SRM) Grain 6.2 %
1.13 lb Roasted Barley (300.0 SRM) Grain 6.2 %
0.63 lb Smoked Malt (9.0 SRM) Grain 3.5 %
1.40 oz Centennial [8.80%] (90 min) Hops 38.5 IBU
0.70 oz Chinook [12.40%] (90 min) Hops 27.1 IBU
0.40 oz Cascade [7.00%] (90 min) Hops 8.7 IBU
1.00 oz Cascade [7.00%] (1 min) Hops 0.9 IBU
1.00 oz coffee (Secondary 2.0 days) Misc
1 Pkgs SafAle Dry Ale Yeast (DCL Yeast #US-05) Yeast-Ale


65% efficiency assumed. mash at 153 for 75min. OG=1.082 FG=1.018 75.2 IBU 8.4%abv

The recipe calls for the coffee to be french pressed, the added to the fermenter 2 days before bottling or kegging. Cold brewed would probably work

I read the BYO recipe too and wonder where it came from? The recipe in the first post states that is under permission from Mikkeller.

Absent however is the coffee.

I made the BYO one a couple months ago. It doesnt taste like beer geek breakfast at all. I hit all my numbers almost exact. Maybe things will change...

Its pretty close, as far as I remember. I havent had a commercial one in a while. I assume the coffee used will change the taste quite a bit. I used an Ethiopian coffee and its pretty strong coffee tasting. Will probably age to an good level Im assuming. Hopefully someone else can chime in that has made it since I cant give a good answer (since it still needs to age)

Any updates on which of these recipes is closest to the original?
Did anyone try recipe 1 with some coffee or does it need it?

This beer, I believe, is aged in wet Oak Cognac barrels. So if your flavor is off, that is probably it.
