that is one hell of a complex recipe. it's usually best when designing recipes (particularly if you are new to homebrewing, which you may be according to your registration date) to follow proven style guidelines while making small modifications.

i have not done extract or partial mash in a long time, but one piece of advice i have seen many times is to avoid using amber LME, which is a mix of 2row and light caramel malt. instead, use basic DME and adjust how much crystal malt you mash to control your grain bill.

i would also consider using coconut sugar. i have not used it or tasted it, but i would be curious if it could provide some discernible coconut flavor.

with all that said, homebrewing is about doing what you enjoy. if brewing more mainstream recipes does not appeal to you, then keep doing what you are doing! you will probably experience a few batches that you simply cannot stand, but you will be having fun doing so.

Absolutely! Thanks for the advice. Like I said, this recipe turned out great!
But like you said, I've experienced a few recipes that I had to just pour down the sink! Haha
If you don't screw up every once in a while, you're not having fun!

Ps, It turned out incredibly!!!
After letting it condition in bottles for 3 weeks, the flavor was so smooth and complex! I loved it!
