thanks for the reply calder.
The main fault is behind me and that was lack of a starter and with that being said I probably should have doubled up on the wyeast since I did not use a starter. Lesson learned. I brewed beer 20 years ago before we had internet forums with vast amounts of information and knowledge like we have today. This imperial coconut stout is was my 3rd batch since I got back into it. A williams brewery extract kit.
My main question is how long can this secondary sit with the coconut???
