They did but they used NZ tomatoes which are thick skinned and much easier to work with than the tomatoes that we grow/consume here. Montanaandy

My friend asked me the other day about making a tomato a beer this summer. I googled, and found this thread. Very interesting. I think I'm going to try it. I do extract brews though. Not sure if I should do a light american ale or maybe a wheat.

If we get another bumper crop, I'll do it again this year. Without the sundried tomatoes.

Is the general consensus that it would be a bad idea to add the tomatoes to the mash because of the acidity?

I think this is a killer idea. I'm definitely going to try something similar out.

Question for the OP: why did you suggest excluding the wheat and just doing barley?

I didn't like it. I think just straight barley is a cleaner flavor. We have a lot of tomatoes in this year so if the bugs, deer, rabbits, and funk are cooperative...

The acidity would be fine for the mash. I don't think you would get much tomato flavor to the finished product. I think I'll add them after the initial fermentation this time. Just drop them in boiling water again to kill anything on the outside.

Just wondering if you ended up brewing this again and if so, how did it turn out the second time around?

I did a second batch that was a bit bland. Good but light. I dried them in the oven a bit, but they were not very flavorful to start. I am thinking of planting some romas this year, which produce easily, so I may give it another go.

Post if you give it a go, I'd be interested to hear how it comes out.
