Coffee, Doughnuts, and Beer?

Turns out this may not be such a bad idea after all. Brooklyn Brew Shop has created a breakfast stout that embodies some of my favorite things: coffee, doughnuts, and beer :). The $40 Coffee and Donut Stout kit comes with a 1 gallon fermenter (what appears to be a gallon growler), Airlock, Tubing, Thermometer, Tubing Clamp, Packet of Sanitizer, Stopper and Blowoff Attachment. Although not included in the kit, the creators encourage customers to include crushed coffee beans (espresso), brown sugar, and coconut flakes to give your brew a smooth coffee flavor with coconut finish. I’ve never tried one of these nano batches before (roughly 10 beers once you siphon off your trub), but I think the idea is interesting. Please leave a comment if you’ve used one of these kits. I’m interested in the outcome.
