    Cold Brew!

    Hey guys so a few questions regarding cold brew coffee;

    How do you guys prepare your cold brew coffee (step by step and pictures would be awesome!)?
    How does Stumptown produce the amount of cold brew they do (going off the Los Angeles location, they have it on tap, bottles, and 64oz jugs)?
    Any cool homemade cold brew devices on here?
    And what is your normal coffee to water ratio with the final product (mention what strength you’re going for and type of coffee you use for that measurement)

    typically, you add 9 cup of water on 1 pound of coffee. That is cold brew concentrate. That is depends on how you are going to presented to your customer.
    I then add 3 cups of water per one cup of concentrate.
    You really don't need a brewer but you can buy Toddy cold brew system on ebay.
    I just use cheese cloth to wrap my coffee ground and brew over night.
    That is the way I do it.

    If you want to be sophisticated system, here are some cool stuff.

    Cold Brew Coffee Maker Iced Coffee Home Cold Drip Coffee Dutch Q Made in Korea | eBay

    Yama Glass Cold Drip Coffee Maker New MSRP $445 | eBay

    Zevro IAB109 Incred 'A Brew Direct Immersion Brewing System for Coffee | eBay

    Good luck

    I don't usually comment on photos of beverages, but I have to say that one looks delicious.

    I don't know if it's the tap, but that looks so much better than any cold brew I've ever seen

    Can anybody comment on the flavor profile of immersion cold brew (I.E. Toddy) vs. a cold drip method (I.E. Yama)...

    Stumptown uses kegs as it stays fresher longer and is easy to transport and serve. They also bottle it, for sure in 10 oz, but not sure about other sizes (prob 32 oz growler type sizes too). Their recipe is here (supposedly): Make Your Own Cold Brew At Home - Stumptown Coffee Roasters

    There are as many different ways to brew cold as there are hot brew methods. Something as simple as cheese-cloth in a bucket to a dripping tower thing made of glass (sorry I forgot the name for it) that looks like a chemistry set.

    Most cold brew recipes suggest a 1:2 ratio of coffee concentrate to water/ice using ~6 grams of coffee per ounce of water. Just keep that ratio and go for it. It prob varies depending on the roast level but you should play around with it, and go with what tastes best.

    Is it better to store the cold brew concentrate in the fridge, or just store it in a cabinet in a mason jar ?

    A fridge would be better as far as the coffee not being diluted when the ice melts. I doubt that the flavor would be different if kept at room temps, and don't think the concentrate will go bad either, but would suggest keeping it cold to be sure.
