Well, I just did a 5 gallon partial mash of a version of this beer yesterday. I tweaked it a bit to make it an imperial porter, and have/will add additional ingredients, but here's what I brewed:

8 lbs Pale Liquid Malt Extract
1.5 lb Munich Malt
1lb Chocolate Malt
9oz Caramel/Crystal Malt 80l
8 oz Carapils
1 lb Flaked oats


.75oz Northern Brewer Hops (45 Mins)

1 whirl loc tablet (15 mins)
4 0z cocoa powder (15 mins)

8 oz Toasted Coconut (10 mins)
5 oz toasted chopped Macadamia nuts (10 mins)
.5 oz East Kent Goldings (10 mins)
8 0z lactose (10 mins)
tsp yeast nutrient (10 mins)

Wyeast 1098 British Ale

2 lbs Organic, unsweetened toasted Coconut (7-14 days secondary)
4 0z Kona Coffee (secondary)

Hopville Beer Calculus has this one coming in at 8% ABV.

added 2lbs toasted coconut chips and 2 vanilla beans soaked in bourbon to mine last night, letting that sit for about 10 days then either kegging or bottling, can't decide yet. Not sure if I will drink fast enough to keg it.

Is there a partial grain recipe. I am so not equipped to do all grain and do not aspire to be. I admire the practice, but I just don't have the space or time. I use DMEs and grains and hops for my beers. So, my question is, can you break this down for a grains with extract recipe?

Would be awesome if you could...

Thanks,
T. Brady

Picked up my Porter Extract Kit yesterday,,along with vanilla beans. I was/am going to do a Coconut Porter with vanilla beans? Soaked in Bourbon? Do the vanilla and coconut mix well together or should I do one or the other? I looked for a recipe with coconut, vanilla and bourbon but no luck.
On a side note.I'm bottling my Coffee Porter today

Some others have used vanilla beans, I am guessing with good results
personally I have never used them.
But I don't see why it would not go well together.
