Quick question: when I've entered this into a recipe calculator, it's coming out much darker than a "normal" porter. I'm happy to make a non-conforming beer, but I wanted to make sure this was right before I bought my ingredients.

When I first put this recipe together in the original Beersmith. it transferred the 30-60 SRM for a Robust Porter over with the recipe into Beersmith 2.

although the BJCP guidelines are 22-35 SRM.

I really like this recipe just brewed it again myself waiting for it to carb up properly.
will take pics in a day or two

just turned on the oven to toast the coconut.....will soak it in the JD till tomorrow afternoon and then put it in to steeping bags with some marbles. toss in the two vanilla beans and let it ferment in secondary for two weeks, sound good? am I missing something?

Sounds like a solid plan

Well I was at the store and I saw Maui's Coconut porter on the shelf and decided to get a 4 pack, as this was the inspiration for this Beer.

It is not really a clone, just while I was in Hawaii I tried it and enjoyed. So I wanted to make something similar.
Seeing it in the store, I thought I would compare the too.
Mine is on the right.



Appearance:- look very similar in color and head
Nose:- Mine has a little more coconut.
Mouth-feel:- Maui's has a little more body.
Taste :- Mine has a little more coconut, but as they warm up Maui's Coconut shines through more. they both have notes of chocolate
