Brewed this batch of a Dark IPA about a month ago it's now in bottles/ some in keg and going fast. Divided up into (2) 3 gallon Carboys one got coconut extract (Gourmet Natural Flavors extract i found on ebay) added at bottling i'd say i added roughly 1 oz coconut into the 3 gallons. The other 3 gallons had 1/2 of a vanilla bean pre-soaked in vodka added to the secondary.
