I wonder if you can use canned coconut milk and do the same process?

OOOh I just remembered. years ago I remember buying Coconut in block form from asian markets. It was a compressed block of meat.

Like this.

If I recall it was dirt cheap. You could probably get enough of that to rehydrate to get the amount you need.

I bet this technique, like the article implies could be used to make all manner of consumes for beers and wines. One of the biggest complaints of folks wanting to use chocolate and peanut butter in beers is the fats, you could do the same thing and make a fat free extract. WOW.

It was exciting to see it work. I'm hoping this will lead to some new creations in my kitchen

I have a ton of ideas for brewing experiments now. Things like pumpkin pie extracts for pumpkin beers made with entire pumpkin pies. Trying a chocolate extract, and also getting some of that cream coconut and try to make a gallon of it.

I'm glad I could help prove this out a little bit. I'll tell ya, it'll need to be fine tuned for sure. The time it took (about 4 days) and about 50% efficiency on ingredients to results can probably be improved. I have pictures and steps on everything I did if anyone wants to see

I kept hoping you'd do a step by step photo explanation of what you did, especially with info on how much gelatin you did.

I'm glad my half assed idea had merit.

You might be able to extract more flavour by pressing the coconut flesh. It's just a thought. Regards, GF.
