There's a local brewery that does a pecan porter, and I think they secondary on the pecans. I'm not sure what boiling them would do, and I imagine steeping wouldn't do much at all. But I would definitely add a good amount of pecans to secondary if I was brewing this.

Hope it turns out well - should be a nice fall beer.

did you ever try this? I was thinking about a pecan pie beer for the winter as well. How much pecan flavor would a pound of crushed pecans give if added to secondary?
