Tasting Notes
Coffee, bitter, balanced.

Ingredients:

5.25 kg (12 lb) Pilsner malt (84%)

0.5 kg (1,1 lb) The Swaen - BlackSwaen Coffee Malt B (Barley) 225L (8%)

0.5 kg (1,1 lb) The Swaen - Blackswaen Coffee Light W (Wheat) 150L (8)

Hops: Admiral (UK) 14% AA

Water:

Alkalinity (6) and hardness (15) are pretty low here. So be free to adjust it.

Mash Schedule:

Start at 40 C (104 F), rise to 66 C (151 F) keep it for 120 min and mash out at 80 C (176F).

Hops Schedule:

@60min: 30g Admiral (14% AA)
@15min: 20g Admiral (14% AA)

Chill to 20 C (68F)

Carbonation: 3.5 co2 vol. 10g/L priming.
Carb lower, if you don't like the bite.

Open the first bottle after 3 months. Tastes like coffee, with a strong, but pleasant, hop bitterness.
Ended up with 8% ABV, nearly 8,5%, if including priming sugar, but you couldn't tell it just by the taste.

A combination of neutral yeast, clean bittering hops and huskless roasted grain, that certain will be brewd again.

That looks a lovely beer. I've never seen Swaen malts in the UK and I guess they'd be quite hard to substitute, especially the coffee wheat. Unfortunately Braumarkt have stopped delivering to the UK. Fortunately, I'm on the continent so I'm going to see what I can find.
