Notes

Update 1/1/19 : changed grain bill slightly as I only had 9.25 lb 2 row on hand , will make up for it with dme. Also just realized I've probably been using too little water. Usually 1:1. Using more water this time. Recommended 1.25 to 1.5 so I'm in with 1.34. Hopefully I can fit that...

update 12/7/18 : modified original "rain delay" recipe for this one, adding oats for body and more malt to boost up to hopefully around 8%. should be noted that rain delay came out more like a stout than a porter. now we will officially call it stout.
bumping up hop additions to better match the malt bill changes. swapping out for warrior on bittering hops so i dont end up with leftover northern brewer. could age some on bourbon oak.

toast the coconut until golden brown about 40 minutes

this recipe says to add to secondary but also says to add around pitch time...>? i would probably add 5 days before kegging.
