Check my Recipe below my avitar. It is a derivation of a stout that I made about 8 years ago. It was great then, should be great now.TheGAC said:Good enough of a splash to get us seriously wasted and talking like pirates?
I would love to see the recipe sometime if you'd like to share.
No stout yet...the Dunkle is going to bottle on Saturday. It has a lot more banana (Natural) than I thought it would. I was planning on a 750 ML of Banana Rum...It's not going to take that much i dont' think.BakerStreeBeers said:I am as well. I would also like to know more about debaniels Banana Foster Dunkel.
this may be a noobie kinda question, but wouldn't that much rum bring the alcohol content too high for the yeast to carbonate the beer, being over the toxicity level of the yeast (depending on what yeast you use of course)Rack onto 3 cups grated Confectioners Coconut, and let it sit for 10 days. Be carefull to avoid the oil that will be on top of the beer when racking to bottle bucket.
Bottle with 5 oz Priming sugar and 1 1/2 Litre of Rum. Appleton Estates.
Good Point on both. My math skills suck, but I figure 1 1/2 ltr of rum will add less than 2% ABV. I have done it before (Bananas on the Beach in "My Recipe") and it carbed just fine.this may be a noobie kinda question, but wouldn't that much rum bring the alcohol content too high for the yeast to carbonate the beer, being over the toxicity level of the yeast (depending on what yeast you use of course)
Also, I wonder if using dried coconut shavings would work better, that oil is going to kill your head retention.
That sounds about right, I predict that the coconut one will taste awesome, but you'll lose out on the head.I think I'm going to actually toast some dry coconut in the oven just before adding to the beer...and I'm only going to do 1/2 the batch with the coconut, just in case....
I actually didn't use a secondary, but I did let it sit 5-6 days extra in the primary, for a total of 11 days. I have no comparison to this method for this beer, as I only brewed it once. But it was a HUGE hit. As soon as it was ready- it was gone in two nights. My biggest hit so far.The last thing I wanted to know is how long did you let it sit in the secondary before bottling?
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.First, what temp and how long are you planning on toasting the coconut? The second thing that I noticed was that beergorila was only planning on adding 13 oz of rum, which is about a quarter of what BigK was originally projecting. I really enjoy my rum, so I would probably lean toward at least a fifth, and since I'll be force carbing I'm not too worried about overdoing it.
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.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.
