- Standing brave in the space of traditional porters, Koa Coconut Porter boldly flaunts a mighty dose of tropical coconut. Anchored by a sturdy Robust Porter, this beer demonstrates a valiant balancing act of prominent roast, slight caramel sweetness and a deft addition of toasted coconut to compose a deliciously complex ale. Pouring with assertive black color, Koa Coconut Porter's medium body supports a firm tan head with rich aromas of toasty malt, gallant roast, modest caramel sweetness and steadfast coconut.

- 5.0 / 5.01 ReviewRequested by My WifeTruly was not excited to brew this recipe. Turned out way better than expected. You do have to like coconut obviously but I have to say for as much coconut that was put into the recipe, it's not over powering. I did get a very high efficiency percentage; could be due to BIAB. Kegged it at 25 PSI at 36 degrees for 3 days, a bit long but I like a lot of carbonation. Anyway, this is a great recipe, try it!Added Jan 22, 2018January 22, 2018Purchased

- Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 4 answersIn regard to the KOA Coconut Porter all grain recipe: When and how should the toasted coconut be added to the fermenter? The directions just seem kind of vague. It's been in primary for 2 weeks at this point.BEST ANSWER: At 2 weeks you're good to add the coconut. Toast coconut according to instructions and put it in a mesh bag or something similar when adding or you'll clog the siphon or spigot.What additional equipment is needed?BEST ANSWER: I use the GrainFather which is an all-in-one system for mashing, sparging, boiling, and cooling. If you don't have this system, then you need a separate kettle for boiling and possibly another one for sparge water, a mash tun, and a wort chiller.
Hope this helps!
