We made a Saison/Tripel hybrid and added the roasted fruit in during the boil and then used pink peppercorns in the secondary. Wait until the prickly pear is in season though. We used some green ones and they were a little sour, so we only used the centers of the fruit. The pinker, the sweeter.
For the recipe, we had to use Martin House's base ingredients (base malt, hops, and yeast), so I do not know what yeast we used. Propbably something proprietary.
Beer is the center of everything. Everything revolves around beer. When you drink beer, everything revolves. Therefore beer is the center of everything. University of Waterloo Engineers
