I have my first porter in primary, and I plan to rack it onto toasted coconut in the secondary. As per many suggestions I will chill the whole secondary to get the coconut oil to congeal on top of the beer, then siphon from under the oil layer to bottle.
My question is: What do you think about skimming the coconut oil left behind to use in cooking food? Any tips to harvest it, will it have a nice porter flavor, or will it be nasty? Any experiences?
