using Coconut Milk/Cream

Got a recipe for a nice black cherry burgundy? Got an opinion on a yeast that you just have to share? This is the place for you.

using Coconut Milk/Cream

Post by Will_D » Thu Aug 23, 2012 11:08 pm

Am thinking of Pinacoldas!

Lidl Pineapple juice and coconut cream plus the usual.

CNCream is approx 20% fat ( assumed vegetable ) but what will this do to the ferment and subsequent wine?

Tis also 2:1 Cals/gram so is quite a good alcohol source

You might be better with coconut milk, if you leave it stand overnight the fats will separate and can be removed. It's what I do to make low fat curries. That might remove difficulties that the large amount of veg fats could cause.

Any results yet?

I am off grains for a while so I am looking for something else to brew.

I'm interested too will, did a little bit of research and found that toasted desicated coconut is used in some west Indian beers.
