Sterilizing/extracting 4oz Of cocoa nibs and 14 oz of toasted coconuts in a mason jar of Vodka.
Should have used rum or bourbon (didn’t have it)

(Coconut toasted 350f for 10 min)

Sounds quite delicious. How much vodka did that take to cover the coconut and nibs? and will you be adding the vodka with the nuts or only the nuts or only the vodka?

About a quart, which was added to the beer

What was your finished volume? The first post said you started with 4 gallons of water. A quart of vodka into 3 gallons or so of beer would definitely warm it up.

Very drinkable, almost goes down too quickly.
Flavors of dry chocolate, hint of coconut at back end.
Next time will use lactose for sweetness and maybe oats.
While barley added a smooth feel, it is missing what oats brings to a stout.
