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!

Peace coffee 2nd crack brew had Avery enjoyable aroma and smooth taste with just enough coffee flavor. Also had a thick foamy head
I've only been brewing for 6 months now. This was my first stout to make. It came out amazing. Nice and dark, with a little coffee bitterness. The only problem I have is that they go down too easily and are too popular with my friends. All 50 bottles are almost gone now.
As a side note, all the ground coffee sank to the bottom during fermentation so there was no filtering needed when bottling.
I brewed this beer following the directions exactly except for the coffee addition after the boil. Instead, I let it ferment for 3 weeks and added a pitcher of strong cold brewed coffee directly into the bottling bucket. It’s been bottled for a few weeks now, and the beer is fantastic! I’ve received many compliments that this is one of the best coffee stouts people have had. My only wish is that I had a keg system so I could serve this on nitro (some day I hope). I’ll definitely be making this again!
Easy to make, and tastes great! I've been letting friends taste the coffee stout and haven't gotten a bad review yet!
Easy to brew with an excellent finished product.
