I am not sure how a pineapple beer would taste? I am thinking a little too sweet. But, I guess you could do like a pineapple honey pale ale, and go for just some pineapple flavoring. Just go with the same honey pale you already did, and see about either adding fruit to primary or adding extract at the end. I may be mistaken, but pineapple is very acidic and may not be too good in the primary. Maybe? You could also try looking into a pineapple/apple hard cider?

Pineapple mead would probably work well. The acid from the pineapple would balance the sweetness of the mead. I've never seen a pineapple ale, although I'm certain someone, somewhere has done it.

If you use fresh fruit put it in the boil. Fresh pineapple has enzymes that would breakdown the head forming proteins.

I've heard of pineapple ale, but never heard of a good one...
Aren't Amarillo hops supposed to be really pineappley? Or is it Simcoe? Try brewing a really big IPA with loads of late editions of one or both of those hops.

Can you buy pineapple extract? If they make it (I only see imitation when I do a quick google), I'd be inclined to go that route rather than real fruit, just because there are some many enzymes and whathaveyou in real pineapple. Maybe a lighter beer, maybe even a wheat? That could be tasty, with the hops recommended by Cheyco. It would be interesting, at the very least.

I just did up a Pliny tha had a load of Simcoe in it. Ill have to see if I can find a recipe that uses Amarillo Hops.

Im not really a fan of mead or cider, I just personally never liked it as much as beer

Anybody have any instructions/tips on boiling in fresh fruit? I cant seem to find a 100% pure pineapple extract anyplace. So Im thinking Im gonna have to go that route.

Thanks in advance,

Way over 10 years ago I saw a bottle of pinapple beer in a store in Portland. It was made by Star brewery (I think from Texs). They are long since out of business; 'nuff said.

So basicly you are saying what Rookie? Just because a company that is out of business made a pineapple beer, its not good? Just want to clarify

Star made other bad beers, it wasn't just the pineapple. (Actually, I can only say for certain that they made bad beers).

If you find a recipe or work one up, post it with an evaluation of the results.

I'd love to know how this turned out! I'm thinking of incorporating a little bit of pineapple flavor into a new brew...
