So this is basically taking the Nilla Porter Recipe (w/o the LME) and using 1 oz toasted coconut flakes in a hop sack during the three week fermentation. This was good at 4 weeks conditioning, but it really came into its own at about 10+ weeks -- a while to wait for some, but worth it. Check out that head! This is a tasty, robust beer -- fairly sweet so an excellent dessert or sipping beer.
Excited about the brew I made last night. Used the american porter refill plus 1 cup brown sugar and 1 oz of toasted coconut flakes (in a hop sack). Going to add 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract in one week. It's basically a makeshift version of the Nilla Porter recipe just adding some coconut flakes. I did this same recipe without the coconut a few months ago and the beer was very good -- if anything, it just lacked a little flavor. Hoping the coconut helps this out. Kevin
I have three batches going right now ; Dads Favorite Cream Ale, Naughty Cream Ale and Horses Ass Cream Ale. I added a tbs of vanilla to the batch of Dads Favorite Cream Ale and am using the 3-3-3 rule. It is 1 week in the icebox. The Naughty Cream Ale is in 2nd week of carbonation, didn't add anything to this batch and will be doing 3-3-6. Lastly I have Horses Ass Cream Ale in fermenting on 2nd week. I added a tbs of cinnamon(probably to much) and 2 cups of honey and doing 3-3-3 batch. I'm sure all these batches would have been great without me adding things, but these partial mashes really made me want to experiment. I also added 2 oz of carapils. I bought all these recipes for next to nothing thx to Mr Beers great deals. Discount recipes with free shipping !!! I will post pics and post my screw ups and hopefully successes . THANKS MR BEER !
