Toastermm, what was your final gravity when you brewed this? Mine is coming out higher than i expected, but i'd love another point of reference.

Thanks

I'm thinking of toasting the coconut shavings for 4-5 minutes in the toaster oven on high. I'll keep an eye on it the whole time, and pull it if the color starts getting tan.

As for the amount of rum ... I love rum second only to beer, but figured on adding only a hint. I may re-think it again, but I based the 13oz on two things: 1) I added 20oz Maker's Mark to my Bourbon Barrel Porter and it's definitely a pronounced flavor (certainly not overpowering, but unmistakeable). 2) I can be superstitious at times & I just had a sour batch at bottling after 4 weeks of brewing/waiting, so this is my feeble attempt at backwards jinxing the target batch I've really been wanting to try ever since getting into all this!

Lemme know how much you end up going with ... I'm interested to know!

Sorry, school was taking over my life- actually still there this evening. BUT when I get back home tonight, I will look it up edit it in this post.

Edit; the final gravity was 1.011 and was steady for two days.

OK, just FINALLY cracked open my 1st bottle of my long awaited version of Coconut Rum Stout.

I used 2 lbs of shredded (thoroughly rinsed) coconut shavings, 2 cans of coconut milk, and 15oz of Cruzan Single Barrel Estate Rum. The inside top of the secondary was thickly layered in an amazing coconut crust. Coconut filled the air for several weeks of fermenting.

So with the first sip, my only thought: Ummmmm ... where the HELL is the coconut??

There is about ZERO coconut taste or scent. Very little trace of rum. It's a tasty stout, but with the amount of planning, ingredients and anticipation I expected something for the fruits of labor... What the heck?!?

That's disappointing to hear. Is it possible that the coconut shavings never got mixed in with the beer? Were they floating the entire time they were in the fermenter?

Even if that's true, the coconut milk and rum should have mixed in thoroughly. This is quite the mystery.

I know it goes against our instincts sometimes but this is a reason why I'll sometimes choose a flavor extract over the real thing. For instance, maple extract over maple syrup, and if I ever decide to do a coconut rum stout of my own, I'll use coconut extract. So often when the real thing includes fermentable sugar you just never know exactly what you'll get. Even my fruit beer used fruit puree + fruit extract.
