Got an email from a guy that I think would know what he's talking about... He says to be safe,
assume that the pawpaws will add the same amount of fermentables per pound as grain because

Every year in August I go to this huge music festival in the mountains in Southern West
Virginia. I also usually brew up something special to share with friends I meet there. Seeing
