Did you use sweetened or regular coconut?

unsweetened

I used organic flaked coconut. I found this at the local Whole Foods store .

I toasted the coconut in oven at 325 degrees for 20-25 min. Till golden brown
added lose to secondary for 14 days.

That's what I ended up buying.

Brewing this next weekend. Good timing, because one of my 3 kegs is down to the last pint or so...

Did you find that any of the 'sugars' from the coconut caused any additional fermentation?

I made one it was overcarbonated using 5oz table sugar, wouldn't do more than 4.

Thanks... I guess I should be more clear.... adding the sweetened coconut in the secondary... did it cause some additional fermentation activity to resume. I'm wondering if the sugars would leech out into the fermented beer and cause a little more fermentation to occur. I think it would be negligible though.

I used unsweetened coconut in secondary and didn't see any additional fermentation

if using sweetened I would assume there would be a little additional fermentation if the coconut is added to the secondary.

Guess I was just giving you an unrelated heads up on carbonation. Mine finished around 1.028 though, may not be an issue if you end lower.
