Treating Coconut for Brewing

Heat your oven to 250F. Gotta be patient with this toasting.

Lay 4 layers of paper towel on a baking tray. Then put the coconut on top, spread evenly. Place a layer of paper towel on the top. This prevents any scorching of the coconut.

Bake for 40 minutes. Remove the coconut and place in a bowl, you’ll see that there will be ALOT of oil in the paper towel. Remove the paper towel and discard.

Lay 2 layers of paper towel on the baking tray. Re-add the coconut and put another layer of paper towel on the top. Bake for 20 minutes.

Remove coconut and place into a sanitized bowl. Sanitize a funnel too and possibly something stick like to use for poking stuck coconut from the funnel. Usually I don’t need a poking stick.

Toss all of the coconut straight into the fermenter after fermentation is mostly (or completely) done. Give it at least 3 days then cold crash. When cold crashing, every once in awhile give the fermenter a light shake. The coconut likes to hang out at the top but a tiny bit of agitation and it will fall to the bottom. Once it collects to the bottom, rack to keg 🙂 I use a mesh bag around my siphon to make sure no coconut makes its way to the keg.
