"Non-traditional" is pretty subjective. Add deviled eggs, and it sounds like a proper Easter Sunday in the South!

Smoked Pork Butt- Hour 5

You definitely need to add pectic enzyme with that much fruit, or your beer will be hazy and take forever to finish fermenting. Add the enzyme below 140*.

Galactosidase enzymes would be my guess. They convert dextrines and some other unfermentables into simpler sugars. Which would explain why low-calorie beer tends to be so watery.

I've only used T58 once, it didn't seem to ferment nearly as vigorously as US05. I think the 05 would finish out before the t58 got a chance to work its phenolic magic.
