Re: Adding coffee to a porter

I too brewed a breakfast stout, I put in 50 g (ground stuff) right at the end of the boil, I also put some cold steeped 40g in 1/2 lt in the Fr. As a well as coco nibs. I’d say it was a bit to coffeefide, but after the first one it taste good @ 8.5% abv Cold steeping is meant to be a smoother taste/...

Re: Out of date LME

Bit late replying, but beer is beer when times are hard. Good or bad..I’m not the person throw or chuck just cos of a bbe date.. anyhow, I’d use it in what ever I was brewing as a use it up thing, but I would make sure it gets to a boiling point.. just to kill off any clingers.

Re: Can I use old hops stored in the garage for dry hopping?
