The revolutionary roasters at Peace Coffee travel the world seeking out the finest small-scale coffee farmers, then roast the beans to perfection and deliver them by bicycle all over the Twin Cities. What makes us love them so? Is it their premium organic beans? Their obsessive commitment to quality? The complex flavors and aromas of their coffee?
It was love at first whiff. With roasters and brewers united, we crafted a sturdy stout fortified with a blend of light and dark roast coffees from both hemispheres. Smoky and sweet, but packing a powerful punch and just the right balance of rich malt, berry and bittersweet cocoa. Sure, you could brew with any old cuppa joe. Just like you could drink any old beer. But you’re not here to settle, and neither are we. So give Peace a chance and taste

- 4.9 / 5.014 ReviewsGreat Coffee StoutGreat balance of coffee and beer. I think I'll mash at a higher temp next time for a fuller body but a great beer overall. Will do again for sure.December 3, 2016Award WinningJust won first place in the Stout and Porter category in a local homebrew competition with this all grain kit!!! Keep up the good work NB!!June 6, 2016Very Good.Subtle coffee flavor per instructions, but can always steep them longer.April 29, 2016Great kitI brew all my all grain kits from northern BIAB style and they come out amazing!March 4, 2016Good brewI brewed this a little over a month ago and think it might need to age a bit more. I like this brew but there are a couple of things I will do differently next time I brew it. I will not steep the coffee as suggested in the directions, I think that it made it a little too bitter and a bit acidic. The mouth feel and flavor are amazing though, everything you'd want out of a coffee stout. Also, I might let it age a bit longer before I keg it. I had it in the primary in a conical fermentor for 10 days and then removed the yeast and let it sit another 7. I might remove the yeast a bit sooner and let it sit for an additional 10 days then force carb next time.February 8, 2016Great stuffMy friends say this is the best one that I have ever made!October 21, 2015Excellent Coffee StoutI brewed this a number of months ago and it turned out fantastic. At first the taste was a bit off but after letting it age about a month it was perfect! Brewing it again.October 7, 2015Good coffee flavor.I brewed this beer on the quick. 10 days in the primary and half went into the keg. The other half went into the secondary and I added 2 oz of coco nibs for 5 days. Both were great but I think the nibs gave it a mocha flavor that I preferred. Either way you can't go wrong with this one.November 17, 2014Perfect !Brewed this as the second part of a trifecta using Wyeast 1945 NB NeoBritannia. The yeast and the recipe out performed my expectations . Very smooth rich coffee taste , but the coffee doesn't over power the stout. A very pleasant drinkable beer. I was a hold out on ordering kits from Northern Brewer. I like the idea of supporting the little guy. I have ordered all grain kits from all over the place and none of them matched the efficiency I got from these three kits . The recipes are solid and the ingredients are high quality .March 16, 2014Great beerI had not brewed a stout for well over a year and my wife wanted to try a coffee stout. I am a BIAB all-grain brewer, I have had a lot of success with this method. The beer turned out great. I primaried for about 3 weeks and then transfered to the keg for conditioning and carbonation for about two weeks. The beer has a nice coffee aroma but the coffee is not overpowering in the flavor. Gives the beer a nice subtle coffee bitterness. I have had several compliments on this one and will brew again. This one will not last long.January 20, 2014
- Browse 4 questions Browse 4 questions and 21 answers"4-oz.-Peace-Coffee-Stout-Porter-Blend-(grind coarsely-and-add-at-flameout,-steep-20-minutes)" How do you steep for 20 minutes at flameout when you are trying to cool and transfer the wort as soon as possible? Do you steep while you are cooling the wort?BEST ANSWER: in this case and with hop additions at knock out, i would turn off the heat, make sure everything is sanitized, put the coffee into a dryhop bag, or a couple of coffee bags (sanitized) that are tied off, dunk it in the wort and let it hang out at that just off boil temperature (coffee gets gnarly above 205 degrees, so use that as your steeping temp) when you get your 20 min steep completed, turn on your cooling system and get it down to temp. i dont think you will have problems, as long as you have a controlled environment and be sure to have everything sanitized.
on a side note, the peace coffee which i received in my kit was unevenly roasted/ burnt and stale. you will be better off getting something from your local roaster in the light/ medium range.This recipe lists two 1oz additions of UK Fuggle hops at 60 minutes. Is this correct? Just seems odd that it wouldn't list 2oz at 60 min versus two separate listings.BEST ANSWER: The recipe you describe is correct for both times I brewed this beer. They're mainly in their just for the, bittering which I think may offset the coffee flavor. It takes 2 oz. at the beginning because the AAUs are just 4.2 & 3.8%
The coffee flavor in the Oct. 2015 batch seemed more muted than the 1st in 2014 which was good.The instructions say only primary fermentation (no secondary) is that right? Or an error?BEST ANSWER: No need for secondary. For the coffee addition, try cold brewing it first and adding the liquid, or put the ground beans in a hop bag for the steeping. Or you you could filter the sort on the way into the fermenter.why do you need the accumaSh water treatment?BEST ANSWER: Hello Russ,
Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! THe Accumash is not necessary. The purpose of it would be to ensure that the water that you are using has the correct chemistry (mineral content pH buffer capacity) to properly match a particular style of beer. I personally do not use it, I opt for using spring water rather than distilled water and adding accumash. I hope that this helps, have a great day!
