  • Mr. Beer many years ago started this whole venture. I started listening to podcasts while making my then twice weekly 2 hour drive to Palm Springs for my final college classes. At first I listened to some tech podcasts and then I came across Basic Brewing Radio. I listened to a few and decided that homebrewing would be a hobby that I would really enjoy - starting right then until the end of my days.

    A 5 gallon batch of 1.100 OG beer would need around 350 billion yeast cells, which is right
    around 4 fresh packets of dry yeast. Unless you made a larger batch, you definitely pitched
    double what you ...

    Since you initially pitched about twice the amount of yeast necessary.... I used the calculator
    here: used the 1 million cells/ml/°Plato since it was s high gravity beer. 5 of my packets
    were fresh,...

    1.030 is a gorgeous finish for a stout that big. Assuming you have a nice amount of roasted
    grains and a solid bittering charge, that's about what I would aim for. Let that sucker age for
    at least six...

    Read up on my thread if you want to coconut your beer:

    One last idea, though. I have some SafAle-05 and even some Montrachet wine yeast. Would either
    drop the gravity down a bit without taking it too far?

    I'm taking the advice given here. Cold crashing now and will keg half of it Sunday and the rest
    will be "coconutted" in the conical for 3 days and will come out with a delicious oil slick of
    coconut f...

    Looking at an attenuation calc, I should have ended up around 1.027 but, after correcting for
    temp, I'm at 1.031 and about .5% short on ABV. After posting I saw more on amylase enzymes and
    was wonderi...

    Brewed a big fat stout that came in at 1.105 SG - all 10 gallons. I pitched a whopping 9
    packets of rehydrated Safale 04, oxygenated, and the fermentation went off like a shot. We
    tasted the beer a we...

    Check out my thread here: will find some helpful info regarding sanitation, ratios of
    coconut/gal etc. it's really giving me a hankering to brew it again!

    Anyone else want to give any feedback after trying this coconutterrific method? Getting ready
    to add some coconut to a growler of W00tSt0ut from Stone to share on Christmas 🎄
