Yup.
I've gotten a bit jumpy with real coconut. I had a mead that kinda got sour from it, I like extract...and Malibu!

What type of appleton rum did you use? Light, dark? Anyone use any other types of rum?

I want to use rum in my next beer and was wondering what types would be best. It is going to be a porter.

I just kegged this, added .75L of Parrot Bay Coconut Rum. Normally I would let this sit for a while to let some of the flavors blend but I have a party this weekend and I need it NOW. I tasted some last night - HOLY COW, it's really good. It was great before I added the rum, now it has a little harsh alcohol note to it (but hey, real pirates don't care about that do they?).

In the future I'll use about 3/4 of a .75L bottle and let it mellow out for a few weeks in the keg before tapping. I'll definitely be making this one again!

This will definitely be the next beer I brew.

If coconut-flavored rum is used should we still be using the shaved coconut during fermentation or are the two interchangeable?

I'd say interchangeable...I've got mine sitting on coconut for about 1 1/2 months since I've been so busy...lazy....

Just curious how long folks let this sit in bottles before the flavors mellow? Tried a small 12oz-er last night and it was still very twangy, with a super-pronounced coconut flavor. Hoping this mellows out with time....

Can you be a bit more specific with the ingredients listed in the very first post of the thread? I'm still new to brewing - I understand the roasted barley but I'm not sure about the other malt stuff. Is Black Patent malt a dry malt? Is it a specific kind of malt or just a group? Same with the Torified and Crystal stuff.

Also, what do the # signs mean? Pounds I'm guessing?

edit: I tried to delete a post that was in place of this one, but I couldn't figure out how to...so this is now the post.

Heh.
