Funny, I just started thinking about pineapple in beer recently. I was thinking of making a ginger beer and using pineapple to increase the acidity. Thought of it because I was drinking a ginger juice recently that had a great balance to it - turned out the maker had used pineapple to balance the sweetness, the tartness, and up the acid to wash the ginger off the tongue.

I made a Brett C/Lacto beer which tasted just like pineapple juice. This is a modified version of what I did. How does this sound?
60%/40% 2row/wheat (1.05 starting gravity?)
mash high (156F?) for some sweetness
sour mash for 48 hours for acidity
boil with 0.5oz Amarillo (conditions for apricot aroma?) for 60 minutes (20 IBU)
Use a large Brett C starter
Fermentation temperature? Maybe a little high (75F) to accenuate aromas.
WL Brett C doesn't super attenuation (at least in this scenario for me), so the gravity was stable after a couple of weeks. The initial aroma is vomity from the Brett C, and after a couple of weeks it becomes super pineapple, then fades again to mild pineapple.

Default Pineapple saison

You might try what I am thinking. Pineapple saison.....I found this pineapple Ginger beer recipe http://www.rejoiceinlife.com/recipes/pineappleBeer.php I was thinking of infusing a saison with a scaled down recipe of this or using my Randall crammed full of pineapple and filtering a clean saison though the pineapple. Just my 2 cents

I have a friend who brewed a very tasty Pineapple Pale. I'm planning on tweaking this some to give it more complexity from grains (I intend to partial mash) and will probably cut back on the cascades some. I'm thinking some honey malt and rye malt too. His recipe:

1# Caramel 40L
5# Lt LME
2 oz Cascade (60 min)
1 oz Hallertauer (45 min)
1 oz Hallertauer (DH)
Belgian Ale Yeast (WLP 550)
5# fresh pineapple in the secondary

My SWMBO has been trying to test me on new brews I can attempt. She said a light summery pineapple beer. This will prob fill the bill. I would defiantly reduce the cascade. I'm feeling some Kent Golding at flame out but that's cause I love that for a flavor hop.

I'm kinda worried about the acidity in the secondary. Any way to remove that? Sugar solution soak? Alcohol soak? Not sure if that made sense.

For the designated crowd, I was planning on a overly sweet beer.

I’ve been following this thread for a while now but wanted to see how it turned out before posting. I recently brewed a pineapple coconut wheat that was a huge hit at a local beer festival last weekend. I used a basic wheat recipe with cascade for hops. Primary for about 12 days. Toasted a pound of coconut in the oven for an hour and used steeping bags and dental floss to hold them in the keg for about a week.

For the pineapple flavoring, I cut up 3 whole pineapples and soaked them in half part rum half part water for a week then strained over several days. I added it slowly to get to the taste I wanted and it turned out perfect. For future reference I would probably blend up one pineapple, boil and strain it to save money.
