Brew Coffee. Crush grains and add to 1 gal. cold water. Remove grains after 5 minutes of boiling. Add boiling hops, gypsum and extracts. Boil for 10 minutes and add 4 cups of coffee to boiling wort. Boil for 35 minutes and add remaining 4 cups of coffee (I actually drank a cup while waiting!) Add Halertauer hops and boil for 10 more minutes. Add fresh hops last 5 minutes. Sparge solids and place in fermenter, cool and pitch yeast at 70 - 80 F. Add 3/4 cups priming sugar to wort, bottle and let sit for 14 days before trying. an agonizing wait!
