While I was listening to the Holgate brown ale show (There were a lot of ideas in that interview. Great job, Peter.), I had an idea. Take pecans and toast them as the Holgate recipe directs, but use them in the Black Butte Porter recipe to make a Pecan Porter. Anyone see a downside to this? An Austin Brewery, (512) Brewing, makes an awesome pecan porter that is draft only.
What do you think?
I think it sounds awesome. I've had a pecan porter in mind since I first had the 512 beer. Yummy stuff and I have a grove of 20 pecan trees in the back acre that make some of the tastiest pecans I've ever had. If you do it I'd like to know how it works out as getting the pecans into the beer was the thing holding me back so far.
