Can I add a coffee extract at bottling?
« on: November 29, 2014, 08:20:05 AM »
I'm planning to make a cold water extract of ground coffee and then add it to a sweet stout at bottling time.  Any tips on that?
It's easier to read brewing books and get information from the forum than to sacrifice virgins to appease the brewing gods when bad beer happens!

The only tip I can offer is to try it with a small sample first to determine the right amount to use. Then scale it up to the whole batch.
