I made a fantastic Pecan American Ale. The key to pecans, nuts etc is roasting them several times to get the oil out, then add to your grain bag. You can also boil them for about 2 mins, drain and add vodka to them and soak for at least 2 weeks. Then filter the Vodka of particles. Put the liquid in the freezer for a few hours and skim the oil off the top. Add the Vodka to the secondary about 4 days before bottling. It is vital to use Carapils to retain the head.
