Kona makes a chocolate coconut porter....I had it a few weeks ago in Hawaii. Very interesting...like drinking candy...anywho, I racked a choco-coco stout about 10 minutes ago onto 14 oz of roasted (sweetened) coconut...the chocolate grain (1 lb) is coming through quite heavily.

A couple of weeks on the coconut should prove interesting. I really liked this brew.

That does sound interesting homebrewer 99. That sounds like a beer I would give as gifts in my house.

You might be thinking of Maui Brewing Company for the Coconut Porter. It's like a chocolate-coconut-coffee smoothie. I just got back from Kauai and brought a sixer in my suitcase. Awesome beer. They make a damn fine IPA as well.

Tried this recipe, its almost a dead ringer! The only difference is that Kona's is hazy, mine is not. (and from what I see in your picture, yours too)

Yep. Some co-workers and I went to a local pub and had some off the tap there. That Friday, I brought in 2 bottled version for them to enjoy over the weekend and they raved about the similarity.

Would anyone be able to convert this to a partial mash recipe for me? I am ready to try my first PM and this sounds like something I would really like.

I'm bottling this today. My first ever dry hop. I used a 1 gallon paint strainer bag & a few marbles to help filter out.

The results are in. This recipe is completely awesome! I think it tastes better than the original.

Tasted the first bottle on Friday and it's the best beer I've made to date. I followed the recipe exactly and can see this being my first 10g batch in the near future.

Kudos to BM on a fantastic recipe.
