I am thinking about making a wheat beer to start and the switch over to a secondary with the pineapple and the coconut.
9# Wheat LME
6oz Munich malt (steeping)
6oz Special B (steeping)
6oz Crystal40 (steeping)
2oz CarafaII (steeping)
1oz Hallertau (4%) @60min
WLP300 Hefeweizen Ale yeast
After primary, add 4 pounds pineapple puree and 1 pound shredded coconut.
I am open to suggestions.

I finished the beer of with the High gravity yeast form white labs (WLP 099). The final gravity after the secondary was 1.002, making the beer end up at approx. 8.5% ABV. The beer was really sweet with a dry finish. If I were to do this beer again, I would only 1lb of pinable and 1lb of coconut. I could not taste the coconut as much as I wanted to. Aslo, 2lb of fruit is plenty. I went over board with 4lb of pineapple and 1lb of coconut.
