I am attempting to brew the coconut porter as listed in this thread, which is bubbling away nicely at the moment.
after fermentation, rack off into PB or somesuch. Then toast 700g dessicated coconut in oven for 40min at 150C or until just turning brown - do not burn!! Add 100g of untoasted coconut to the PB with the 700g of toasted coconut - loose. Leave for 10-14 days, giving a shake around every now and then as the coconut floats to the top.
After my fermentation is complete (I usually leave my brew for 3 weeks, no secondary) would racking it out onto the coconut, into a lidded bucket with no airlock, be suitable?
I've only got one fermentation vessel with airlock available, so I was planning on using my bottling bucket for secondary. It's just got a tight fitting lid with no hole for airlock.
Alternatively I can rack off into bucket, clean the fermentation vessel, then put the beer back in there with the coconut?
