Meowie Waui Coconut Porter

September 22, 2011 at 6:00 pm 1 comment

This is a porter I brewed after a trip to Hawaii last year. I was inspired by the tasty coconut porter from Maui Brewing Company. This recipe, however, has a much higher ABV. It could almost be considered an imperial porter. I wouldn’t suggest surfing after one of these.

Use real coconut and not that pre-toasted, sugar-coated stuff.

Batch size
3 gallons

Steeping Grains
6 ozs American Chocolate
2 ozs American Black Patent
8 ozs British Crystal 60L
1 oz flaked barley

Malt
3.3 lbs. dark malt extract
3.3 lbs. amber malt extract

Hops
1 oz Hallertau @ 60 minutes
.25 oz Kent Goldings (4.4% AA @ 20 minutes)
.25 oz Kent Goldings (4.4% AA @ 10 minutes)

Yeast
Wyeast 1056 American Pale

Adjuncts
1 tsp. gypsum
1 tsp. Irish moss @ 10 minutes
10 oz toasted coconut

Stats
OG – 1.085
FG – 1.014
ABV – 9%
IBU – 52

Before the wort is chilled, add 2 ozs. of the toasted coconut and let the wort sit for 10 minutes. After primary fermentation is done add the remaining toasted coconut. I put the coconut in hop bags to reduce the amount of floaties in the beer.
