This recipe turned out really well although I cut back on the hops a little. FG= 1.012 and the WL Dry English Ale as promised made for a quick fermentation and quick turnaround time. Tasted a little like a mounds bar. Even non Porter fans enjoyed this batch.

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!

This brew turned out fantastic. Being an extract version it wasn't hard to hit all the numbers. I did a full boil which helped the overall taste of the beer. Two weeks in primary and 1 week on a 2# bed of toasted unsweeted coconut flakes in the secondary. The porter has a nice upfront taste of coconut taste then a smooth coconut flavor that fills the body of the beer. If I do this brew again I'd probably step up the coconut in the secondary to 3 or even 4# to get more of a coconut flavor.

Brewed the extract version, let it sit in primary for 4 weeks before racking onto 1.5lb. toasted coconut. Decided to go a little heavier on the coconut addition to make sure it was in the front of the beer. Good porter base and the oatmeal in this one lends to an amazing mouth feel. Will be buying this one at least twice a year. If you like coconut and you like a porter, this is hands down one of the best beers I've made. 5 stars to AHS!

Absolutely amazing flavor! Definitely tastes like a Mounds bar when it's young, and it had everyone that visited over the holidays raving about how good it is. Coconut has mellowed over time, and I know I'll be upset when the keg runs dry. I will definitely be making this one again.
