Confusion Corner Coffee Stout

Tomorrow, instead of running, I will be brewing

"Confusion Corner Coffee Stout"
"Turning 50 miles into 53 for 30 years"

Thank you to Brother Grub for the artwork and slogan.

The anticipated SG on this baby is 1.084!

That will be 8% Alcohol by volume.

Formulated the recipe with a little consultation from the boys at Northern Brewer.

It will be infused with some Peet's Coffee, but not sure yet which coffee variety exactly.

This one is sure to make you take a wrong turn and create confusion.

May post pics

Mmmm. Just back from a brewfest where I sampled a few coffee stouts, a chocolate stout, and more than one oatmeal stout.

Looks like the chief brewer at the Wildknits household is getting ready to keg up our Oatmeal Stout.

When will you be sampling this brew? ;->

I'll take some of that for the 6 pack you owe me!

Any time you need help taste testing...seriously breakfast is a good time.

Any good resources on learning to brew?

Adam,

Funny, you left this comment just as I was finished up all of the calculations.

NB is my favorite forum. I am "Runnerbrewer", although I have not posted in a long time.
Northernbrewer the store - The guys there are great. Tell them you want to start, and they will suggest what to start with.

Advice - START SIMPLE! Start with super simple batches and techniques (start with extract kits)

I do 10 Gallon all grain, but I have been doing it for a long time, and have all of the equipment, patience, experience, and "magic" needed to do it.

Sweet, thanks! The Palmer book is on the way. I'd love to come on up and help you brew for a day and learn the ropes.
