This sounds interesting.

Any ideas on the process of toasting the coconut? Temperature? Time?

Here it is, straight from the horse's mouth!

Primary = 20 days at 65F
Secondary = 14 days at 65F

Any idea why it would be necessary for the beer to spend 20 days in the primary?

I'm reviving this old thread with some new information. I just got an e-mail from Mr. Fujiura, who won Homebrewer of the Year for his coconut porter recipe. Here's the info -- good luck to anyone and everyone who decides to brew this! I'd love to hear the results.

>to use 0.8 pounds of chocolate malt for a small batch -- that is
>about 680 g in a 19-liter batch. It seems like a lot of chocolate
>malt! Did Zymurgy make a mistake? Or should I really put that much
>chocolate malt in?
QUOTE
Origin of my porter recipe is "Castol Eden Porter" on the book titled "Brew Classic European Beers At Home" published by CAMRA.
That recipe use 8.52lb pale malt and 1.45lb chocolate malt (No crystal) for US 5 gals.
So, 0.8lb is right.
For reference, I used Hugh Baird's chocolate, crystal malt and Munton's Pale ale malt.
>Also, did you toast the coconut yourself? Or did
>you buy "toasted coconut" in the store?
QUOTE
I used dried shredded coconuts that easily find at cake making supply in super market. I tosted coconuts very lightly using frypan.

>Finally, do you have any special tips for making this beer?
QUOTE
Coconuts is pretty oily. Don't stir up beer with coconuts. When racking after steep coconuts, for avoid coconuts through racking tube you may put cheese cloth at end of racking cane.
Good luck

Why a 2.6gal batch?

Any problems with scaling it up to 5gal?

The way I understand it, Fujiura-san makes a lot of really bizarre beers and doesn't like to potentially waste 5-gallon's worth of ingredients on something that might not work out. In an interview I read with him, he said that he tried the coconut porter 2 or 3 times before he got it right -- the early attempts were undrinkable. So, no problem scaling it up to 5-gallons (or actually 5.2) -- just double all the ingredients. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/smile.gif)

I'll be making this one soon. I think I'll use Burton Ale though, since I have some. It has similar attenuation to the one he uses, and White Labs suggests it for use in fruit beers.

I'll also be converting the recipe to a 5 gallon partial mash batch.

Now I've got to find some natural coconut!

Just curious if anyone ever tried this recipe out? I made a similiar porter but modified with less chocolate, and added some crystal and am planning to rack it onto some toasted coconut tomorrow. haven't decided if i want 16, 24, or 32 oz yet.

I made it, although a slightly different recipe. Basically, I left the beer on the coconut for too long, and it wound up getting so dry and tart that it was basically undrinkable. I haven't dumped it yet, but I will.

Next time, I'll leave it on the coconut for only 3-4 days.

What kind of coconut did you guys use, and how did you add it to the brew? Did you both brew the exact recipe listed?

I was quite disappointed that mine came out so bad. I will be trying again. I think the type of coconut I used was a mistake, and I think I left it in the secondary too long.

Robonz, Tizzod,
I too would like to hear how your final recipe turned out and what you did about the coconut.

I followed the recipe exactly except for the yeast. Just a mistake I made ordering. But it worked! I toasted the coconut until I noticed it just starting to get brown, then I took it off. I maybe could have toasted it longer, but I didn't want to burn it. I was being a little hypersensitive. Added it to the secondary and racked on top of it. The coconut was on mine for 5 days or so. I also used dried, unsweetened coconut. Shouldn't be too hard to find. Oh, I just realized. I also cut out the 2nd addition of hops. I was hoping it would make the coconut come through more. I don't know if it worked or not as I have nothing to compare and contrast with.

Good luck. I got lucky on this one. My first brew back!
