What do you think about adding the toasted coconut to the keg?

I'm sure adding the coconut in the keg would be fine
using a Randall with coconut might be interesting too.

I'm pretty new to brewing...just did a few clone recipe kits AG....When I read about recipes on here, should I assume that people are making yeast starters? It seems that almost everyone is making starters when i read posts in the yeast/fermentation forum. For this recipe, was a starter used?

Due to this being a 10 gallon recipe I did use a yeast starter for this. I would use just 1 pack and bring up the yeast count on a stir plate.
if you are scaling it down to 5 gallons you may get away with out one I would check. with a yeast calculator like in Beersmith or there are some free ones online.
yeast starters are not always required for 5 gallon batches. but most people recommend them.
but they defiantly needed for higher gravity beers.
As far as I know you shouldn't do yeast starters with dry yeast., just add the amount of packs that are required.

I brewed this and added coconut to the mash, the boil and the secondary. The coconut was slightly toastted(golden). I didnt want it geting roasty. It turned out great. I did a 5 gallon version. Every one loved it.
