Default wailua Wheat...Passion Fruit

Hello all,
I was hoping to make a wheat beer and add some passion fruit in secondary to make something refreshing for the summer like the Kona Brewing Company's Wailua Wheat.

My question is how much passion fruit or passion fruit juice should I use. any suggestions are gratefully accepted as I've never put fruit in my beer before.

I love Wailua wheat... I had it while I was at Kona last month.
the passion fruit taste is awesome.
As for amount of passion fruit, I think it is better to do a small batch experiment to determine the optimal amount.
Are you using extract or real fruits?

Yeah it's very refreshing. I was hoping to use whole fruit but if the quantities are massive that may not be an option.

Rezzing an old thread here but was wondering if anyone ever came up with a clone for Wailua Wheat? A buddy of mine gave me five very fresh passion fruit over the weekend and I'd like to make use of them in a Wailua Wheat-esque way. If not, I can guesstimate a grain bill...and then considering adding a portion to the mash and the rest to secondary - unless someone else has better ideas?

If you can get nelson sauvin hops, add these to your flavor addition. Widmer drifter pale ale uses these and it tastes just like passion and guava.

I'd like to know how much/type of passion fruit was used myself. Smurf-n-off's passion fruit vodka is downright tasty. So a wheat with it in there should be great. I'd say put it in secondary myself,& let it ferment a bit more.

I too would love to find a clone for this tasty brew! I has one in the Honolulu air port the other day and was completely thrown by how crisp and refreshing it was!!! It's one I think the wife will like too.

Not a terribly useful add, but remember that a little fruit can go a long way. It is a wheat beer with a hint of passion fruit, not the other way around.

Do keep us informed of how this brew goes, it is a rather tasty beer!

Bumping an old thread in hopes someone has uses passion fruit in a wheat beer? FWIW I brew a pineapple wheat with 1 pineapple cored and skined per gallon with citra hops on a very basic wheat recipe and it's fantastic. Pineapples in secondary for 2 weeks. But I was hoping someone has tried passion fruits?

I have not. If you have a wheat recipe that goes well with pineapple though I would figure that would be a good base. Figure Citra might not be the right hops, though.
