Great info.......I wish I had the time and/or inclination to do such things too.

Have you read (I think it was) Ken David's recent article on cold brewing ? ......accordingly, you can't get good taste unless you have the right temperature of water to have the necessary reactions and extraction.

Yes, I had 6 little glasses each with some coffee in it in the fridge.  I know, but hey, all in the name of science and pursuit of good coffee.

Love it.

Have you considered trying a hot bloom before cooling the brew down? Credit for this idea goes here (and possibly elsewhere).

Perhaps, what you may have also discovered is a good use for beans that are past their prime, on the verge of staleness.  I find that I enjoy using cold brewed coffee in my iced coffee drinks, be it an iced latte or my own version of a blended frappe.  I'm not looking for the coffee's origin or varietal character to shine through, only for the satisfying taste of coffee itself mixed in for a nice refreshing and energizing drink.
