Pineapple beer?
I have had a request to brew a pineapple beer and have not been able to find a recipe out there. I was wondering if anybody has one or is there a reason why there are not any? (Off flavor?)

you could run the risk of killing your yeast using fresh pineapple the acids might be to stong. as a cook i was taught to never use the fresh while marination because the acids will eat right though the meat (its kind of cool). i dont know about how strong yeast is. you best bet would be to use canned pineapple cause it is already cooked in the can.

It would be a pretty simple matter to make maybe a light wheat beer and toss in some fruit extract before bottling.

I think a Pineapple Beer could be kinda cool. Let me know if you work it out!

I made a pineapple wit that works great! The pineapple comes out a bit later, interestingly. I think when I make this again, I'll secondary and put half the pineapple in the primary and half in the secondary to get more flavor up front. It's definitely very tasty!

0.5 lb carapils

6 lb wheat LME
3 lb amber LME

.5 oz. Hallertauer (60 min)
.25 oz. Cascade (20 min)
.25 oz. Hallertauer (20 min)

WLP400 Belgian Wit Ale Yeast

1/4 tsp crushed coriander (5 min)
2 cans crushed pineapple in juice, no sugar added

Steep grain 30 mins @ 150-160. At 200 degrees, add amber LME. Begin boil. Boil bittering hops for 60 mins. Add remaining LME with 15 mins remaining. Add coriander with 5 mins remaining. Add pineapple just prior to flame out.

Bottle immediately after fermentation is complete, 7-10 days. Use 5 oz dextrose to prime.

Boil the Pineapple juice with a red chili until it is infused enough to be able to taste the chili and it stops the enzymatic action that it has on proteins. Tinned pineapple can also be used. Check out Heston Blumenthal and Pineapple jelly, it was previously not thought possible with fresh pineapple as it broke down the protein in the gelatin.

Brew a Dogfish Head 120 minute IPA clone...that beer was so sweet out of the bottle that I felt like I was drinking a port mixed with pineapple juice. Certainly didn't taste like an IPA!
