Beer Style: Dry Stout  (13A)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons

Dry Stout


Yes, I have used coffee in stout, in amounts ranging from 1 to 8 ounces per 5 gallon batch. This was my latest effort (from my brewing log).

Comments: this produced an intensely bitter (which I like, but many don't) brew with a very subtle coffee flavor and aroma to it. I had considerable difficulty in siphoning the brew to the keg, which is still full of little bits of coffee grounds. The point at which coffee is added makes a *considerable* difference in the flavor; next time I go this route I may use the coffee as a "dry hopping" agent before a secondary ferment.
