Ok so my imperial coconut stout was in primary for 2 weeks then racked to secondary and I added french oak chips as well as real toasted coconut. (I peeled, cut and toasted myself)
It's been in the secondary for 2 weeks and the gravity was at 1.046. After speaking to the brewmaster at the local micro brew he said, get another smack pack of the same wyeast, toss it in and let it sit as this should bring the abv up to where it needs to be. 5.75% abv is not what I want.
My question is how long should I let it sit with the coconut, oak chips and fresh addition of yeast? I"m thinking 2 weeks then start checking gravity but not sure if letting it sit too long will make it start to get off flavors from the coconut??
