Spent Coconut/ Fruit
« on: July 14, 2012, 03:56:25 PM »
So I just racked my coconut milk stout to the keg and this time I fermented in a bucket and put my coconut in a sanatized bag to keep the coconut from clogging my siphon and getting into the keg.  So I was thinking of what I could do with the "spent" coconut...well, that was until I tasted it.  Let's just say my wife got a good laugh at my reaction as I tasted the coconut.  So, just out of curiosity, what do the rest of you do w/ any fruit, coconut, etc... that you've added to the fermenter?  After tasting the coconut, I can only imagine that you just throw it away, but I've been surprised at what homebrewers can come up with!

Compost. Although I'm curious is there is any other possible use for it that someone has discovered.
