|9 lb dark DME||1/2 lb molasses||4.1 oz Kent Goldings (bittering) (it's what I had on hand)||WYeast 1084 (Irish Ale)|
|3/4 lb 80°L crystal malt||5 oz ground coffee (I used Sumatra from Starbucks)||1 oz Kent Goldings (aroma)|
|1/2 lb roasted barley|
|1/2 lb black patent malt|
Pseudo-mash specialty grains. Strain & sparge into brewpot, add DME, boil 1 hour. Bittering hops and molasses in at 30 min, aroma hops and coffee in at end. Ferment as ususal.
Inspired by RedHook and Starbuck's DoubleBlack Stout. Next time, I plan to use this interesting coffee concentrate I ran into at my local gourmet grocery -- it's in liquid form, the idea being you just add a spoonful to hot water to make coffee. I think it'll work better than the ground coffee.
