Product Details
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.

A perfect porter to sip by the fireplace on a cold evening
I wasn't sure about this at first,but I like coconut and wanted to give it a try. The only thing that threw me off was when I added the toasted coconut in the secondary. The next morning, there was a strange waxy cap floating on top. It ended up being some of the oils from the coconut. It was easy to remove. I kegged and forced carbonated. It has a very nice chocolate flavor and although you can taste the coconut, it is not overpowering. It's just the right blend of flavor.

Will the coconut float or sink after the secondary fermentation, and should I use a strainer on my siphon?
A shopper on Oct 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It tends to do both sink and float. Cold crashing helps get all to settle to the bottom. Otherwise, some people do like to use a hop bag over the siphon to help strain.
What all is included in this kit?
A shopper on Nov 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Malt grains, 3lbs of liquid dark malt, 3lb of Breiss dark malt, 1oz Perle hops, cherry flavoring. I ordered extra cherry flavoring. Don't forget yeast. They won't remind you.
