    Brewing with Coconut

    Kedogn, not trying to argue with a pro, but my brew had a real nice head.

    Brewing with Coconut

    Yes, Mr B American Porter HME. Josh told me soaking the coconut in vodka would bring out more flavor.

    Brewing with Coconut

    I made a Coconut Porter a while back. I got my advice from Josh at MB. Here's my notes: 1.Made the beer as usual 2.After 7 days put 7 oz of unsweetened shredded coconut on a cookie sheet and toasted it in the oven till brown. 3. Put the toasted coconut in a bowl and cover with vodka for 3 days. 4. On day 10 poured the bowl of coconut + vodka into lbk 5. Ferment another 10 days Turned out great. Maybe my best brew ever!

    Pet bottles problem

    There's no reason the ring should cause a problem as long as it's all the way down against the seat. I've had plastic bottles for years and most of them still have the ring on them.

    Pet bottles problem

    It's never happened to me, but I know others have posted here with that issue. Hopefully one of them chimes in.

    Not dumb questions at all. Heck, most of us like helping newcomers. We've all been there.

    Caps Not Sealing

    There's something drastically wrong with a guy that squeezes his glass bottles to check for carbonation.
  11. I still do the taste test before bottling. If it is flat and not sweet, it's ready. If it's still a little fizzy or sweet, it's not ready.

    Dry corn sugar instead of booster

    They cut the size of the booster bag in half from what it used to be. IRRC Booster contains some maltodextrin, so it helps some with foam. You don't want to sub corn sugar for booster.
