Wow, do you live in an apartment? Do city folks have pitchforks and the means to make torches? If so, are your mobbed neighbors chasing you?

How did you fare with the durian beer? I've been thinking of doing that for some time, too. Here in Malaysia right now it's durian time. A friend just gave me five of those fruits about half an hour ago. We ate three, and left two unopened. Then I read your message while checking the forum on Durian Beer. I have a brew coming up, so was wondering about how your brew is going so far. Are you still fermenting, or already bottling/kegging? If successful, I could then perhaps refrigerate the durian seeds for use in my next brew, what do you think?

Primary is done, thinking about adding two more Durian Pods to secondary but not sure...I may split the batch at this point.
Tastes like a creamy and spicy dunkelweisse but still has a little 'chemical' note to it, much less than before but still present. I'll get notes from an unsuspecting taster soon!

I shared a few bottles of this brew with friends...
Blind tasting notes for finished Durian DunkelWit:

'Subtle yet distinct durian flavor...if you know what it is...'(he was the only one who saw the label)

'Strange combination of Witbier yeast and German Dunkelweiss, spicy yeast without banana, but there's still a little banana-like essence'

'good Dunkel...what kind of yeast did you use???'

'Sweet, spicy yeast, creamy mouthfeel, slight unusual flavor...did you leave it in primary too long?'

'Unusual aroma, good Dunkel characteristics, strange yeast character...did you actually put banana in this?'

...so there you have it...
next time (and there Will be a next time) I will add more Durian to secondary.

Great to read the results! I haven't done the durian try-out yet, but for sure will be doing it with my next batch (still durian available here ) I'm planning on making a stout next, and will throw in some durian. See how I can tweak it, and how it works out. Thanks for the suggestion to use durian!

Have wanted to make this since moving to Singapore....just because

Think I am going to try my hand at this one as well and see where it takes me. Maybe 1/2 in mash and 1/2 in secondary....? Will post final recipe when I get around to this one . Gotta work up courage first

Go for it bro!
You are quite lucky in that Sgp in all its smallness has two lhbs as apposed to Thailand where we have,er, well, none.
And raymond at ibrew charges us an extra $15 for just ordering from him!
