Although I haven't specifically tried priming with maple sugar, my experience with other sugars has been that you use so little for priming that you don't get any appreciable flavor.  But feel free to try and let us know how it works.

Wouldn't the maple syrup just make it drier? Does it add much flavor at all?

You're correct.  My experience is that it ferments out and leaves little to no flavor.  The best way to get maple flavor seems to be to use maple extract.

To have any chance at all, I think you'd have to add it after fermentation has subsided.

Damn..I can't get to the URL and a ping times out.  Tried from both at home and at work, both of which have always worked before.  Tried both IE and FF on Win7 and Safari and Photobucket app on iPad.

Ingredients / Coffee Stout

I use 2 methods for coffee beers.  First, I put 3-5 oz. of coarsely cracked beans (in a bag) in the fermenter after the bulk of fermentation has finished.  Then, when I bottle or keg, I add brewed coffee (or you could use your liquid espresso) to taste.  I prefer that to adding it to the fermenter because you can get just the right amount without too much guessing.

Denny, are you saying you do both on the same beer?

Or, these are two separate methods you have used?

Yeah, I use both on the same beer.  Different effects

I don't think there's much of an issue with shocking the yeast, but thawing it will help break down the cell structure and extract the goodness.

I absolutely meant 3/4lb, as in 340 grams. I was targeting 5.3 volumes of CO2 in 20L of beer.  I used Champagne bottles, no explosions, but I did have a couple crowns come off unexpectedly.

Wow...thanks for the confirmation.  Obviously _I_ never would guessed that's what you really meant!

You could also send your idea to Jill Redding, the editor of Zymurgy (jill@brewersassociation.org).  If it gets published in Zymurgy, it will be available in the Zymurgy archives.

He might like to go again. Who would not?

You know I'd go again Jeff! Awesome time!

Same here!  I heard a rumor that SN wants to run another AHA contest towards the end of the year.
