Notes

Fermentation temperature is no crucial for the beer. We try to shoot for about 60 F but the provided yeast strain is very forgiving to both higher and lower temperatures. A typical fermentation will be complete in about a week but can take longer with lower temperatures. Coffee should be added to fermenter(or conditioning vessel) no more than 24 hrs before kegging or bottling, ideally at a temperature below 40F. Longer exposure to the beans can result in vegetal flavors in the beer.
