Around 1 cup. It turned out very good. Had about 6 pints last night.

I will be using your grain/hop bill and replacing the coconut with some vanilla beans. What temperature did you ferment at? Cheers

I all my ales ferment at around 65* - 68* the batch I just keged was fermented at 65* then cold crashed with gelatin to 40* for 2 days before keging. tasted great with a great coconut flavor prior to being keged, can't wait for it to carbonate.

I used 2lbs for a 5gallon batch and the coconut flavor is fairly subtle I think.

Same here. 2 lbs for 5 gallons (.5 to the mash, .5 to the boil, 1 in secondary) yields a very subtle coconut flavor. What it did accomplish wonderfully, is what I'm describing as a coconut milk mouthfeel to the beer - a very full, fluffy texture. I will definitely brew this one again and experiment with more coconut.

I personally think I get a good coconut flavor from 28oz in 10 gallons, it's not overpowering it at all.

I don't see any reason why you shouldn't up the amounts.

I'm going to use what I have and not add more or less. Seeing this is one of my fab brews. I'll modify as needed
