I just picked up a Toddy Cold Brew system on a whim at the mall. I've been pretty heavily interested in coffee for about a year now but have yet to experiment with could brew, so I figured I'd branch out right in time for summer.
Anyway, the instructions on the box are pretty minimal, as are most of the resources I've found on the internet. If anyone has any tips, techniques, or recommendations on how to get the best out of the machine, I'd greatly appreciate it.
There's a new-ish coffee shop in Kansas City called Oddly Correct that is making (and selling a lot of) bottles of a drink they call Hop! Toddy. It's Toddy-made coffee with hops (citra) in it. They say that the Toddy makes a relatively flat cup, so they were experimenting with the idea of putting something in it to brighten it up, so they chose hops. They add a small amount of a hop extract that they make (probably in the Toddy, too) and blend the two. I have a bottle in the fridge waiting to try, but it's supposed to be really good.
You can use a tea infuser or French press to easily do your own hop extraction. Just pick some hop cones up at the local brew supply shop or order online, if you want to try it yourself... could make for a fun summer of experimentation!
