Exact opposite! I used 750 ml of coconut rum and I LOVE this beer! I just meant I think the actual coconut may get lost.

The coconut water is a neat idea. Didn't think of that.

If you are using unsweetened coconut, there is nothing for the yeast to eat. Or was there another reason you want to cold crash?

I am crashing just to get as much of anything suspended out as I can.

The oils from the coconut can make it's way into the beer so that may be a reason to wait till after. I think cold crashing is typically done in the low to mid 30's.

I recently did a coconut porter that was awesome.

I used about 1.5lbs of unsweetened flaked coconut toasted in two batched on a cookie sheets. I put those in two bags and secondaried in the cornie. Pulled the bags out after a week. It was a bit strong on the coconut flavor at first but after three weeks it tasted great. Will make it again for sure....

This is the ideal way to do it!
