Hi,
I brewed a russian stout and would like to add some coffee flavor in it. What is the best ways to do this?
Ive think about making fresh espresso and add it to the fermenter, or simply add the grain to the fermenter. What guys are you thinking is the best way to proceed?
Thank

Get a jar with a a lid, add1 cup of smashed up coffee beans steeped in 2 cups of vodka for a week or two.
Shake it daily.
When you're happy with it, strain it out and add to taste.
For a new and exciting twist, you could sub out the potato water for Bundy OP rum and go full send as the children say.

In my RIS I put 3 heaped dessert spoonfuls in a small French press, filled with water (cold) and left it in the fridge for about 36 hours. (Also added 6T spoons of vanilla paste)
Added to the fermenter prior to O2 free transfer to keg
Bloody awesome

I get a good coffee hit by "dry-beaning" in the keg (19L) with about 140g of whole beans, in a stainless steel tea ball. Pop it in the keg for 2 days.

I have made many coffee stouts. A simple way would be to buy a 100g vacuum pack of ground coffee, boil it up in a pot, strain it through a chux cloth and add the liquid directly to your brew. Works a treat.

I have made a few coffee stouts myself aswell, about to crash chill one this afternoon actually. I kinda of do a dry hop with 400ml fresh coffee (22l batch). Sanitised French press, chill for an hour in the fridge and pour it in on day 4. Works a treat for me.
