    Just started brewing using the BIAB system in a 10 gallon Bayou Classic. My next batch is going to be a coffee porter, but the recipe says to add a very small amount of cold press coffee to the secondary fermentor; My question is: How do I prevent contamination of beer in secondary fermentation when I add cold press coffee?

    first welcome to the site, well all I can say is sanitize the equipment you use first, as far as the coffee, the beer has already fermented and created alcohol in the secondary, its not the perfect scenario but you should be fine, no worse than drinking the coffee??

    I just made a coffee Porter. I just added the coffee at the last 10 minutes of the boil.
