"If I were you I'd drop the Indian/Peruvian coffee idea. Indian coffee is mostly cheap robusta AFAIK, and even if you find Malabar, it's probably going to be stale. I'd suggest you go to the best hipster coffee roaster/bar in town,  taste their best and freshest coffee, and pick what you think might go well in a beer. I personally wouldn't pick the darker espresso roasts, but rather the lighter filter roast."

Thanks for the feedback.

The brewers notes say:

Can be anything you like.  Just stay away from earthy and astringent varieties/roasts.
• Peruvian - 50% of total
• Indian - 50% of total

For those that have made a coffee porter/stout, what did you use?

I definitely don't want astringency therefore I will 'dry bean' cold in the keg.

I Monsooned Malabar. and Peruvian for sake of discussion, that unique of a coffee that it will be discernible from another coffee in such a complex beer?

Yes, for a 5.5 gallon batch. This is a recipe for Pizza Port's Coffee Monster (no longer produced). As the name implies, it's a monster.

3 lb. coffee/barrel
  • 3 / 31 = 0.09677419354
    0.09677419354 * 16 = 1.548 or 1.55 oz. per gallon
    1.55 * 5.5 = 8.525 or 8.5 oz. per 5.5 gallons
    4.25 oz. each of Indian and Peruvian

Is my math correct?

Thank you gentlemen! This is a coffee monster with ~ 4.5 ounces each of Indian and Peruvian cracked and steeped cold post fermentation.

The step is to find it in Las Vegas, NV.

Ingredients / Porter with Indian and Peruvian Coffee - Need Advice

I plan on brewing an Imperial Porter that calls for a 50/50 mix of Indian and Peruvian Coffee.

Can someone recommend common Indian and Peruvian coffees that would be suitable for a porter/stout?

Denny - you don't aerate or use a starter?

Do commercial breweries aerate their wort? If yes, how? I have never seen this during any brewery tour.

Denny would you say this is a sweet or dry porter? I really like Ballast Point's Victory at Sea Imperial Porter with Coffee and Vanilla and thought your porter may be the right base to start things off. Are there any commercial examples of what your base will taste like (if brewed right) so I may get an idea of what to expect?

"Our Victory at Sea Imperial Porter is a bold, smooth brew with just the right amount of sweetness. We infused this robust porter with vanilla and San Diego’s own Caffe Calabria coffee beans. The subtle roasted notes and minimal acidity of the cold brewed coffee, balances perfectly with the sweet caramel undertones of the malt, creating a winning combination for your palate.

This Imperial Porter clocks in at 10% ABV and gets most of its roasted flavor from coffee beans prepared locally at Caffe Calabria on 30th Street. Winter Ales traditionally have a spice, and in this beer we chose vanilla to round out this very special “big” beer. Our Victory at Sea Imperial Porter is infused with ¾ ounce cold brewed coffee per pint.

I think the bourbon would be too much - looking for a coffee chocolate version of the recipe  ;D

Denny - have you adapted your Bourbon Vanilla Imperial Porter to include coffee and chocolate?

I am interested in a Coffee Chocolate Imperial Porter and would appreciate your feedback.

I agree, a hot sauce thread would be great.

I have the planed peel (no pith) of four Ruby Red grapefruits soaking in vodka. After one week, the vodka is murky orange/yellow and heavily laden with grapefruit taste.

For me, I will not add this to the keg but per-glass to keep things interesting. My IIPA with and without grapefruit. To me, this is the way to go.

Another informative exBEERiment. Looking forward to the discussion!
