I added a good bit (~1 lb) of coconut with about 10 minutes remaining. A bunch of that ended up in my primary (clogged up the transfer, got annoyed and said screw it as I dumped it all in the primary). When I sampled, it was fairly strong. I then added about 2 lbs toasted to the secondary. It's kegged and carbed now and tasting quite strong of coconut. The toasting added a very light vanilla/bourbony undertone.

Hopefully that helps?

Just bottled a coconut stout yesterday and the sample out of the secondary tasted pretty good. We started with an Irish Stout kit from Midwest, then added 12 oz of unsweetened toasted coconut flakes to a nylon bag in the secondary. We let it go almost a month with the coconut, so the taste is rather pronounced, but not overly so. It'll make a great desert beer or something to use to make a beer float.

Good thread.

I'll be adding 16oz of toasted coconut to my imperial stout when I rack it to a secondary. Plan is to let it sit for 2weeks then time for bottles. Sadly enough I think it will sit and not be touched for a few months but I'll post up the outcome and recipe then.

Ok so my imperial coconut stout was in primary for 2 weeks then racked to secondary and I added french oak chips as well as real toasted coconut. (I peeled, cut and toasted myself)

It's been in the secondary for 2 weeks and the gravity was at 1.046. After speaking to the brewmaster at the local micro brew he said, get another smack pack of the same wyeast, toss it in and let it sit as this should bring the abv up to where it needs to be. 5.75% abv is not what I want.

My question is how long should I let it sit with the coconut, oak chips and fresh addition of yeast? I"m thinking 2 weeks then start checking gravity but not sure if letting it sit too long will make it start to get off flavors from the coconut??

Help...
