Brew day went well for this Craft A Brew extract batch. It was a fast brew day is we only had to boil for 20 mins.
This home brew turned out well for the most part. Nice tropical smell and a nice juicy citrus taste. The only thing missing is the coconut from this brew. I think the dry hops need to be cut back some to let the coconut into this beer. I did talk with some other people that made this beer and most of them also did not get coconut. One person did get coconut and said maybe I did not toast the coconut enough. This could be I do want to make another batch of this beer to see if I can bring out the coconut in this beer.
