9/14/2021 - Brew Day - Mashed on the higher end since I'm adding both dextrose and a pretty aggressize Kveik yeast. I'd like to keep some residual sugar if possible. Runoff was SUPER slow on the first runnings. I let it drain quite a while before adding the sparge water. The second runnings went a bit faster but still trickled out about the last 1/4th. I ended up putting a pitcher under the tube so I could get the kettle on the heat. SG was 1.085 when I took an initial gravity. I decided to boil for 15 minutes before adding hops and will continue to boil pretty heavy throughout the 60 minutes to create more evaporation.

9/17/2021 - Toasted 7 oz shredded coconut (Walmart) and added directly to the primary of the coconut porter batch and stirred a little to help mix it in.

9/22/2021 - Kegged - FG on both was 1.020. I figured the kveik yeast would have taken the FG down a bit lower, but I did mash a bit on the high side to retain some sugars. Flavor was roasty (but not sharp) with a firm bitterness that was a bit more than I was expecting. That should mellow out a bit, and the higher FG also helps to balance. The coconut batch was a pain to keg, even after scooping out the floating coconut and running through an in-line filter. That clogged up halfway through transfer and I had to clean it out and start again. Added around 2oz PB extract to the PB Porter batch before racking into the keg. I put the PB porter in the kegerator right away to chill and carb.

11/22/2021 - Added a French press full of cold steeped coffee to fhe Coconut batch, since I wasn't getting much coconut flavor. May look at adding some coconut extract as well.
