We are making a coconut porter and just added the coconut into secondary last night. We toasted it at 350 for about 20 minutes then dumped it into muslin bags weighted down by santized marbles. We didn't think of this until after the fact but do you think we will lose much of the beer volume as it will get saturated by the bag and the coconut? Thanks!

I just brewed this one about a month or two ago and I maybe lost about a pint or two to the coconut absorbtion. Didn't get much coconut flavor in mine but the overall taste is awesome. By the way good going by putting it in a bag I just threw my coconut in lose and had major clogging issues with the transfer to the keg. Hope you enjoy it cheers.

The bag is a good idea next time i brew this I will be using a bag
I would try to hang the bag from the top while siphoning to drain bag as much as possible.

Hey I'm brewing this beer and I am unsure if you pitched all the yeast at one or if you added some to the secondary fermenter

You Pitch all the yeast after wort has cooled to 60-68 F
you only need to add the coconut to the secondary fermentor

There is hardly ever any need to add yeast to secondary fermentation
Yeast multiply during the primary fermentation then die off or drop out of suspension as there job is done or with time.

Was talking with a co-worker last night, about coconut beers, figured I'd search this site, and of course HBT came through AGAIN! I'm gonna give this one a whirl!

Rather new to brewing...For a 5 gallon batch would I just cut the ingredients in half (grains/hops/yeast/moss/coconut etc) and follow protocol for grains/water ratio? I really want to give this a go but only have a 10 gal kettle.

Thanks for your help!
