So really sorry if this has been discussed, my searches came up with recipes, and in those pretty much every one said roasting the nuts multiple times to remove as much oil as possible, then run them through the boil.
My thought is I love the W00tstout by Stone, and love the hint of pecans you get in it. I wanted to impart that on the stout Im boiling right now, and most of what i have read about putting pecans in the 2nd is it bring out the oils and kills the head. I have tried extract once in the 2nd and it just wasnt right. Does anyone have experience with pecans in the 2nd? I figured the oils would just sit on the top, and I could siphon the beer off under it or will that still kill my head?
