Looks good to me. Although, 900g seems like a lot of coconut. I use about 340g of toasted Bob's Red Mill flakes in 5g for 2 weeks ... and get a pretty significant contribution. You may experience head retention issues with 900g, as coconut will still add some fats to the brew after toasting/blotting. Just something to consider, be sure to let us know how it works out if you do use the 900g. If it works out, I may just up my amounts next time.

Esther who did this last time did 1lb of coconut and found it contributed a very mild flavour. Though we're thinking of vodka, maybe less coconut. Thanks for the feedback!

tips on coconut: Roast 160'C (fan oven) for 4-5m. Use a paper towel to scrunch the oil off the coconut. Do this whilst the coconut is still hot from the oven as the cooler it gets, the less oil you get off it. We used just under 900 grams because the previous finer shredded stuff didn't impart a noticeable flavor to the stout.

It'll probably swing the other way now...
