Pick them when they're brown and fall off of the branches easily. If you have to tug at all, they're not ready. You can also harvest from the ground if they're clean, dry, and haven't been rained on.

I have 2 gallons of extract waiting for a gluten free brew with sorghum. Got great dry velvet pods. Really curious as to how it all plays out. Maybe chilies or something.

I have about 15 pounds of beans I had hoped to brew with already, hopefully I can do something with them this fall.

GTG, let us know where you get your syrup from, would be interested. Also am curious if they are North American or South American (or other) sourced.

Update on my belgian: OG was 1.071, down to 1.019 today. It moved .02 in the last day so it isn't done yet, but I am kegging for a party saturday so it better be done by Thursday morning!

Taste: Sweet like a light molasses but light bodied. Get a lot of the spice from the yeast through. Will be cloudy since I am not using a secondary. Wish I had room to let this go further, but next week I start my holiday ale and need the ferm chamber free.

So far this year I've brewed two different mesquite beers. The first was a saison made with some purple mesquite pods that I found. I used them to make an extract along with some pilsner, orange rind and juice fermented with dregs from Great Divide's Colette. The second beer I did won a silver medal recently for Other Smoked Beer in a local competition. I have some really nice old growth, center cut mesquite that I used to smoke 3 lbs of pods for 3 hours in my smoker at 250 - 275 degrees. I then used the pods to make an extract that was added to a few other basic malt extracts. I added 1 lb mesquite/citrus honey and fermented it with an English ale yeast on about 2 oz of the same center cut mesquite wood. I can post recipes if you are interested.

Not sure of the type of trees that they use but I assume that they're the NA varieties.
I found the syrups on ebay first but here is a link to the product site -
