Whoa that's a nice drop... as I mentioned earlier to be on the safe side I did a half size batch and used 7 x dbl espresso's instead of instant - and I used my first TPW hearts which is at 55%ABV - man it's good.

I had a bit on ice last night and i'm thinking I may have to cut back on the amount of sugar as I don't normally have sugary things (there's no way the coffee had anything to do with it)... I was still staring at the walls at 1am this morning.
AND it's so good I had it for brekkie this morning instead of my usual coffee :scared-eek:

Made a batch of this, got that burnt taste and it got me thinking about making this with cold brewed coffee. Anyone tried it? When I do I will post results.

Yes I have, only because I've just learned about cold brew coffee... :D AND had to try evertang!

I lie it better, much better actually because the coffee comes out less bitter I can use less sugar (I like about half the sugar) but it still needs tweaking!

I find it makes this recipe nicer!

That's how I did this cold brew....

It's the heat that makes the coffee bitter - extracts the oils from the beans... that is mainly avoided with cold brew....

Here's a couple of articles that seem to cover the process reasonably well:

Made a half batch last night. Stirred and stirred the coffee mix and it was great. Slept like a baby after 2 small mixed glasses and milk. The vanilla taste would give it a better taste still.

Thank you very much.
