  1. If my ex-wife could brew this…it may have saved our marriage. She’d still be a cheating whore, but at least the beer would make it tolerable. Bravo Chewie…Bravo!

  2. UPDATE

    this time I brew this.
    I left it it in the secondary for 3 week and got a much better coconut Profile which was what I wanted. Also crash cooled to 40* with Gelatin for 2 days before Kegging
