Ive got a few pounds of plums left after brewing 3 gallons of plum wine and was thinking about trying a plum beer. Now, the wine was EXCELLENT paired with 70% dark chocolate so I thought about maybe making a chocolate plum stout. On the other hand a stout beer might overpower the delicacy of the plums so maybe a lighter beer would be better . . .
Anyway, any suggestions as to what styles might compliment plum?
How about yeast (I would like to get it to about 9%abv)?
What do you all think about using honey with this one?
Im open to any tips, tricks, or suggestions.
