1. I kegged my Chocolate Point Porter last night, the one which had
1/2 pound of Sumatra coffee beans in the primary fermentation. I think
this one is really going to be good -- the coffee aroma & flavor
blends nicely with the chocolate and black patent, and with the
Cascades hops.

2. Priming: I know Papazian recommends the use of 3/4 cup of corn
sugar for priming a five gallon batch, but I swear that I can notice a
cidery flavor imparted by the corn sugar that doesn't age out for a
month or two. On the other hand, when I prime with 3/4 cup of light
dry malt extract (dry krausening?) there is no overtaste. Has anyone
else observed this?
