Anyone using the real coconut worry about sanitation... dumping cooled wort onto shredded coconut?

How long did the carbonation take with the Appleton Estates?

Also, I used 4oz. of corn sugar instead of 5oz...

For those of you who like to do it ALL yourself or like to use all natural ingredients I submit this. Alton Brown on his FoodNetwork show "Good Eats" made a coconut cake completely from scratch using whole coconuts. But in the show he made other ingredients with the coconut such as coconut cream/milk, coconut water, and coconut extract. Following are links to the whole show, which is worth watching, and a link to just the recipe to the coconut extract which could be used in this beer.

Entire show:

Just recipe:

I think it would be fun to make your own extract and you could still use rum instead of vodka to stay with the pirate theme.
Not brewing nor drinking beer for that matter. Why you may ask? Cause I'm in Afghanistan!

Pretty slick....definately looking at this route in lieu of the Malibu, but like you said...use rum instead of vodka.

Starting to sound like a good brew plan

The Pirate came out great. My buddy said he would be willing to sell this beer. That is a pretty good compliment. Thanks for the recipe, it is a keeper. I will do this one again.
