Fermentis SafAle US-05


Mash at 68°C for 60 minutes. Recirculate until your runnings are clear, then run off into the kettle. Sparge and top up as necessary to get about 28 litres of wort pre-boil. Boil for 90 minutes, adding hops and Irish moss according to the schedule. After the boil, chill the wort to 20°C, aerate, and pitch the yeast. Ferment at 20°C. After fermentation is complete, transfer to secondary and add toasted coconut chips and condition for 5 days or until desired coconut flavour is achieved.

NOTE: The Black Stripe recipe has subtle coconut flavour as opposed to an aggressive, in-your-face coconut flavour. However, you can adjust the amount of coconut in this recipe to suit your taste.
