Dan had pretty good success adding cold brew to his stout. I thought that might be a good way to hide the inevitable band-aid flavors from my Oatmeal Stout.
After work today, I bought a 32oz bottle of cold brew coffee concentrate and a 9oz bag of dark chocolate chips.
I used the ghetto double-boiler routine to melt the chocolate…
And once that was done, I slowly added the coffee. Everything was up to temperature and thoroughly mixed, but the chocolate never fully melted. It was very clumpy and grainy…
After 45 minutes, I added the slurry to the fermenter.
Second Gravity: 1.020 – 4.46% ABV
We’ll see how it turns out.
