Default Pecan Chai Porter


Pecan Chai Porter (P.C.P.):

Batch Size 3 gal

OG: 1.045
FG: 1.011
IBU's: 36

Grain bill: AG
5lbs 2-row
4oz Chocolate Wheat
4oz Black Patent Malt
3oz Caramel 60

Grain Bill: PM
2lb 10oz Pale Liquid Extract
1lb 3 oz 2-Row
4 oz Chocolate Wheat
4 oz Black Patent Malt
2 oz Caramel 60

Mash all grains and Pecans (roasted and crushed. directions for roasting at bottom) at 153* for 60'.

Boil additions:
.5 oz Challenger (7.5% AA) @ 60'
.5 oz EK Golding (5% AA) @ 15'
.5 oz EK Golding (5% AA) @ 5'
2 oz Chai @ 5'

Ferment at 68* with Nottingham until FG is reached. Secondary is optional if more chai flavor is desired it may be dry "chai'd"

ROASTING
Place pecans on cookie sheet at 275 for 5-10 minutes or until golden brown. These burn very easy so keep an eye on them. Crush pecans before adding to mash. This can be done with grain mill, rolling pin, or any wacky kitchen gadget you have.

This sounds delicious! Going to brew this tonight. Curious as to what chai you used and how strong of a flavor the 2 oz. gave it? Thanks.

Originally I used 2 oz of starbucks chai tea. I have a friend who makes her own chai so next time i'm gonna get a blend from her and adjust it accordingly.

So you just add the loose leaf tea into the brew kettle and it gets strained out with the hops? I've got some nice local organic chai that I'm going to try out.

yeah i throw it in the boil. Loose leaf tea needs about 4-5 minutes to steep to fully impart it's flavor and aroma as a tea so i applied that same principle to adding it in the beer. You can also dry hop with it later.

Finally ended up brewing this last night. I overlooked the fact that it was a 3gal batch, so I ended up throwing in 2.25 lbs light DME at 5' for our 5gal batch.

Smelled great, cant wait to try it out!

Mine turned out alright. Here's what i would change though. I would add the chai in steeping bag at flameoutt for 4' (rather than in the boil as i did), I would also do about 1 to 1.5oz instead of 2. I would keep the pecans in the mash but also throw some in the boil as well possibly to steep with the tea. It didn't have as much pecan flavor as i would have liked. Lastly when i brew this again i'm going to have it ready when it's colder out. This is definately not a warm weather beer. Remember the recipe is for 3 gallons

I had great reviews about this been while sharing with friends. Even my co-workers who dont really like beer loved this brew.

I plan to tweak this into a 5gal all grain that uses pumpkin. Pumpkin Chai Porter.




Thanks for sharing this, Jester.
