I really love coconut so I decided to try this brew. Did the minimash and let it ferment for about 1.5 weeks, then transferred to secondary on 3.5 lbs toasted unsweetend coconut (which I might add is NOT in the baking isle). Word to the wise...do NOT try to put this 5 gallon batch on 3.5 lbs of coconut in a 5 gallon carboy. Sure, it fit right in there without a problem so I figured it would be fine. Two hours later I find the beer bubbling out of my airlock and all over the floor. Next time, I plan to let it ferment for about 1.5 weeks again, place the coconut in a muslin bag and directly into my 7 gallon primary for a week, then transfer without the coconut into secondary to clear up a little. After about 1.5 months in the keg, it tastes great!
