Peace Coffee 2nd Crack Stout Extract Beer Recipe Kit w/ Steeping Grains
When we set out to create a rich new coffee stout recipe, we knew that good-to-the-last-drop just wouldn't cut it. Our recipe had to be nothing less than great, from perfect pour down to that last "damn fine" drop. Fortunately, we found a partner as fanatical about great brews as we are, and in our own backyard!
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 for yourself what all the buzz is about!

Decent stout. Good flavor and the coffee adds an extra element. I used cold brew during packaging. The grain bag was very small though.
We like porters & coffee so this brew has been made several time here. If you like coffee this has a good coffee flavor. I always use all 4oz of the coffee in secondary. I always put the ground coffee in a bag. On a few occasions we have added a strong 8 cup pot of brewed coffee at bottling. This came out well so we’re doing this each time we brew this one now. But you have to like the coffee flavor!
First coffee stout, won't be my last! Very good!
Should have brewed the coffee at a lower temp but still good.
This was a good beer if you're looking for powerful coffee. However, even then, I recommend cutting the coffee in half. It's just too much coffee not to overpower.
