Filtering Coffee Grounds
« on: January 09, 2013, 03:04:31 AM »
Made a coffee stout without making the toddy. Just put the grounds right in the fermenter. When I rack to keg, I use a CO2 push. Any suggestions on a way to filter the grounds out without introducing O2?

They should settle out with the yeast and trub.  Just be careful racking?

Next time, maybe put them in a bag or a stainless tea ball.

When I add coffee to a fermenter, I use coarsely cracked beans in a bag.  Yeah, I know that doesn't help now, but maybe next time.
