My mailer couldn't find Tom Hotchkiss's return address.

Subject: Coffee Stout, Specific Gravity

Funny you should ask: I tasted it just last night. The recipe is
included at the end of this message. First: it tasted good. However,
when I make it again, I'll use a little more chocolate & black patent:
it didn't come out as dark as I would have liked. The 1/2 # of
unground Sumatra coffee beans was about right.

I just dumped the beans, unground, into the hot wort in the primary. I
used to have a stoneware crock that I used as a primary, but it got
cracked, so I now use a standard food-grade 7 gallon plastic bucket
with a lid and air lock. The beans floated at first, but by the next
morning they had sunk to the bottom, so I left them there for 2 1/2
days in the primary before racking to a glass carboy secondary.

Also, since I was not worrying and having a homebrew(s) I forgot to
take the initial SG....

Have fun.
