AG71 - Toasted Coconut Porter

Pretty much what is says on the tin

This one's all about coffee/chocolate and toasted coconut. I've shied away from roasted malts as I don't want them to detract from the coconut. 

As I write this blog, the beer is currently in secondary with the coconut in a stocking. I'll probably bottle it on Tuesday. 

The beer is a standard brown porter, using S04 yeast and Fuggles at all stages of the brew. Then, after the initial krausen had died down I grated a coconut, dry fried it in a frying pan and popped into a sterilised stocking.
