Default Doughnuts / Pies in beer

Ok, I have now had a few beers where the breweries claim do dump whole pies or doughnuts into the brew. I assume its in some kind of secondary fermentation?

I cant find any info on this in my 7 second google search. Anyone do this? At what stage of the brew did you incorporate the baked goods? Do you sanitize at all? Have you had good results

The beers I have had were the Traverse City Cherry Pie beer from Right Brain, and some kind of Nutty Doughnut thing from Darkhorse. Cant remember the actual names.

Thoughts?

I have no idea about the two beers you mentioned, but lot of the weird ingredients go into the mash. A donut in the mash is a nice schtick, but not much donut "character" will actually make it into the beer.

Yeah, thats why I assumed it went in after the mash. People try crazy things, dont they! Love this hobby

I add the doughnuts at the time of drinking. This works well with pies too.

The process is fairly simple. Bite, sip, repeat.

Probably like the Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout- probably 1/2 lb. in one brew, but they can call it that- brilliant marketing?!

Just did a little googling, and came across this older article. Looks like they used 1/2 in the mash and 1/2 during fermentation

http://www.mlive.com/kalamabrew/index.ssf/2011/02/right_brain_brewery_and_grand.html

and this one notes that they used 50 cherry pies, but didnt say exactly how or when they incorporated them

Interesting stuff!

Had this from Martin house brewing in Dallas: pretzel stout
http://martinhousebrewing.com/2013/06/26/there-will-be-stout/

They say 6 lb per barrel, so that's not all that much. It was pretty good too, I'm not a big fan of different things in my beer but this was tasty.
