Fermentis Beer Yeast Safale S-04 11.5


Lallemand Yeast LalBrew Verdant IPA 11g


Mill the grains and mix with 11.8 L of 73°C strike water to reach a mash temperature of 67°C. Hold this temperature for 60 minutes. Vorlauf until your runnings are clear, then run off into the kettle. Sparge the grains with 15.6L and top up as necessary to obtain 23L of wort. Boil for 60 minutes, following the hops schedule.

After the boil, chill the wort to slightly below fermentation temperature, about 17°C. Aerate the wort with pure oxygen or filtered air and pitch yeast.

Ferment at 17°C for 14 days. Allow the temperature to free-rise while making your cold-brew coffee addition: place ground coffee (minus 55–85 g) in a sealable container and cover with water, steeping for 2–3 days. At the same time, put the remaining ground coffee in a muslin bag and steep in the beer. Remove the steeped grounds from the beer, then strain the cold-brew and add to taste into the finished beer. Cold crash, then bottle or keg the beer and carbonate to 2.25 volumes of CO2.
