I had a question on the original recipe. What size of output is that recipe, it seems like a large grain bill for a 5 gallon batch but small for a 10 gallon batch. This is the next beer I'm brewing it looks amazing.

Maybe it dosnt show up in the app version but I read the first post again and i don't see where it says that it is an 11 gallon batch. Also if someone had some OG readings that would be helpful, just for something to shoot for.

Sweet! It's about time I brewed this. My cousin challenged me to put coconut in a beer, so I'm cheating and using your recipe. Cheers!

Brewed yesterday, hit 1.060 on the dot. Using WLP013 London Ale Yeast instead because I love that strain for stouts

One of the best tasting pre-fermented worts I've had

So I read this thread a couple times. Just to be clear, the original recipe was for a 10-11 gallon batch, split into two 5 gal batches, with 12 oz of coconut in each. So for a 5.5 gal batch I would just divide the grain bill by 2 with 12 oz of coconut.

Brewing it this weekend, exciteddd.

Also, how sweet is this stout? I'm brewing this for my father who enjoys a dry stout. I know this is by no means dry, but is it too cloying? Was thinking of dropping the lactose, should I go with .25 or .5 pounds if so?

Before adding the coconut it was not that sweet, but I toasted sweetened coconut and added that and its now a bit too sweet for me. I would go with unsweetened coconut if you can find it. I think the sweetness of the sweetened coconut will fade over time so I don't think it will be a problem in the end.

Overall amazing stout though, I'd like to take this same grain bill (ratios) but bump up all the amounts to get a 1.1+ beer and age it. I think the grain bill is so solid

Gotcha, thanks for the feedback. I was thinking it over, and dont know if I want a whole case of coconut stout. Gonna bottle most as is, and then on maybe 6-12 bottles left add some coconut extract.

I'd like to brew this but I will be putting it in bottels. How many voulmes of C02 should I aim for about 2?
Also what is the recommended dry yeast? US-05, Nottingham or S04?
Thanks
