i'm looking to make a couple 5 gallon batches of beers and i've got an opportunity to get some brazilian and salvadorian fresh roasted coffee beans and i was wondering how much i'd need??

thanks in advance.

bonjour:
None is needed, just go heavy on the Roast.

SO the bottom line is whatever you want.  Depends on the flavor profile you are looking for and the addition method that you will be using.  Many choices but I prefer to add brewed coffee to taste at kegging

deepsouth:
so, basically, i should get some and just make a pot of coffee when i bottle it?

what is the most sanitary way to check/taste prior?

bonjour:
I usually mix gently and then raise the bottling bucket up to my lips.  If there is any left I keg. ;)

Seriously, a sanitized wine thief or turkey baster.
