Brewing with Coconut??
I'm attempting a to do a tropical Imperial IPA, and wanted to use coconut in the secondary. How much is too much, I was thinking of using 1lbs - 2lbs of toasted coconut. Any suggestions?
Here's what I'm thinking
Munich Malt 10L 12.0 oz
Victory® Malt 9.0 oz
CARAPILS® 9.0 oz
Extra Light LME 9.0 lb
Pilsen Light DME 2.0 lb
Warrior United States 1.0 oz 60 min Boil
Calypso United States 1.0 oz 45 min Boil
Citra United States 1.0 oz 30 min Boil
Calypso United States 1.0 oz 15 min Boil
Citra United States 1.0 oz 5 min Boil
Citra United States 1.0 oz 11 days Dry Hop
NAME LAB ATTENUATION TEMP
Brettanomyces Bruxellensis 5112 Wyeast 80.00% 60°F – 75°F
I've read that Brett as the primary yeast will give off very tropical aromas.
