I've never added coffee to beer, so no advice there...hey, I was looking to make a dark ale and maybe substitue a percentage of the water with brewed coffee in which I had melted Werthers toffees,,, with the hope I would get a caramel/coffee ale. Has anyone else done anything like this, or any thoughts on % to replace water with the coffee?
Sorry, no idea how much to add. You can buy a beer that's similar to the style you want to brew and add small, measured amounts of toffee until you get the desired flavor, then do the math; with the understanding that the sugar from the candy will be fermented out.thanx ChuckE,,, would u have any idea of amount of toffees to say gallon? and do u think I would need to alter the amount of sugar used, I dont mind personlly if the beer a little less bitter,
when living in Portland Or, I tried some wonderful natrual flavoured beers from chili to banana bread! So the idea of adding a little extra to my brew is really appealing! cheers
