So I brewed coconut porter just toasted my coconut and dropped into a hops sack placed into the secondary. My question is how do I removed all the small floaties of coconut that escape the bag before bottling?

I left mine. When I racked into the bottling bucket 99% of them stayed in the carboy. By the time I got it in the bottles, there were only very small particles left and they just added more flavor when I cracked em open.

Has anyone used unsweetened Coconut Milk? Would you put it in the boil at the last 10 min? Or would you still add to the Secondary?? Very interested in trying something like this.

Or, even the coconut water? I wonder if either of those would give you the coconut flavor, without the oils in the pulp?

just got the all grain stuff for this one. I think I'm going to coconut half and keep the other half regular but we'll see. This is my first porter and first coconut beer so I'm stoked for it. I'm entering it in a brew club bjcp competition for fruit beer. I won the last one which was for IPAs. There's 3 total so I'm trying to win all 3 for the triple crown!

Does the toasted coconut cause any problems because of the natural oils?
I tried a coconut porter last week at a local tasting room and when I asked them how they got the coconut flavour, they used a term I hadnt heard before due to the oils. Maybe I misunderstood?

I have never had any issues with the oils having a negative impact on the beer. I use red wheat in my coconut recipes to help with head retention as well. I toast my coconut, then as soon as it comes out of the oven, put it all on a counter covered in paper towels, and then put another layer over the coconut and pat them down. It soaks up most of the oil.

How do you add red wheat? I have never used that before (still a newbie )

I'm thinking about adding toasted coconut to a vanilla porter that I have had great success with in the past. What do ya'll think; vanilla coconut porter!?

Just like all my other grains. Crush it and put it in the mash. Seems to work well. Started doing it after a recommendation from a local brew master.
