While steeping (also known as mashing),heat 1 gallon H2O into another pot to 160F for sparging. At end of steep, pour grains through a strainer into another pot. (You can use a grain sack to hold grains, but make sure you load them loosely and rinse very throughly)

Sparing: slowly pour the gallon of H2O over the strainer or grain bag and let drip into pot. Discard grains.

Boil: Bring liquid (wort) to a boil. Set a 60 minute timer,adding hops according to schedule (above).

At end of boil, take off heat, cool to 70-80F degrees. Pour coffee into 1 gallon jug (using funnel) first. than pour your wort, adding clean water if needed to reach one gallon. Place cap and shake to aerate. Uncap and pitch yeast (1/2 pkt), attach blow off tube.
Should begin bubbling within 24 hours. When fermentation subsides (5-7 days), wait additional 5 days and then bottle.
