Use A French Press to Add Flavor to Your Beer

@DrGaellon No need to have a fancy french press for this experiment. Also, I wouldn't worry about it affecting your coffee the next day. However make sure that you clean the french press thoroughly before using it for this experiment, to ensure you don't get any unwanted coffee flavors in your beer. The coffee oils stick around on the french press much easier than any beer flavors would.

@KevinMofM I don't think recarbonating the beer is necessary. It still felt like beer.

@FlavorCountry Glad you liked the article!
@ChristopherRobin88 I love the idea of getting weird with ingredients!
@BeckaK-S Carbonation was not affected too bad. It does lose some carbonation, so I recommend pouring and pressing slowly to limit the amount of foam that is created.

@Weezel Yes! Coffee and imperial stouts go perfectly together!
