Default Black Sand Coconut Cascadian Ale

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Wyeast American Ale II 1272
Yeast Starter: I didn\'t but it wouldn\'t hurt.
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5
Original Gravity: 1.076
Final Gravity: 1.02
IBU: 80.5
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 40
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 20 @68F
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10 @68
Tasting Notes: Coconut on the nose, some bitter and roasty notes that finishes with more coconut

This was actually my first beer I brewed and sort of went all out I suppose and came out very very well, one of my favorites still as well. Mash was at 154F and 1lb of shredded organic coconut was toasted and added to the mash for the full 60 minutes. 1lb of untoasted coconut was added to secondary when the beer was transferred, and there was no dry hops.

I wanted to really emphasize the coconut on the aroma on this beer and along with the late hop additions to the boil, it came out about how I wanted.

Out of the 28 or so batches of beer I have made,this its in my top two and has been remade 5 times now. It's bitter but the coconut adds a nice sweetness to balance it out. If you like black ipas and coconut I'm sure you would like this.

Would you happen to have an extra version…I only have 2 beers under my belt and I don't have the equipment for AG brewing.

I do not have an extract version nor would I know to go about converting the base grains to extract. I'll do some research and see if I can figure it out.



Edit:
I would use 9# of LME in place of the 2-row and then steep the C60,carafa III, coconut and chocolate malts.

As far as further in depth of extract, I can't really provide it as I skipped straight to AG when I started. Maybe somebody else can help out.

Just wondering, how are the oils from the untoasted coconut in the beer? They do much to stop head retention? You notice much?

Head retention has always been good with this beer as far as I see.
