I worked with a guy that said he made a killer pineapple / lemon beer. He told me that he used no extract, and only used whole fruits.

The sad part is that he got fired before he could bring me in the recipe, and I have absolutely no way of contacting him

I think Jamil tryed to make a Pineapple beer and it was bad enough that he wont post his recipe. Im not sure why, but try listening to his audio.

I would be weary, if he had trouble with it, im sure its hard to make a good one.

good luck though.

I'm guessing that pineapple juice would ferment rather completely, leaving a sour, nasty flavor.

I'd recommend an all Simcoe APA. Simcoe has a very distinct pineapple flavor.

Pineapple extract in a light wheat beer might work, too, but it doesn't appeal to me.

One of the beers I judged in the NW Regionals of the National Homebrew Competition was a Pineapple Coconut Porter. It was surprisingly good. We scored it a 39 overall and advanced it to the second round. Tasted like a chocolate Pina Colada! Sorry, I don't have a recipe.

Sounds, well, interesting. ...But that is why we brew, to push the boundaries of what we know and are comfortable with, to explore new areas and to create the perfect brew. Imagine if Ben and Jerry just made Vanilla?

Decided to resurrect this old thread to see if anyone had attempted a version of a pineapple beer since 2006.. Anyone ever try this? Tips or tricks? My wife has been curious about a pineapple beer and I told her I would look into it. My guess is that the pineapple would indeed ferment completely out and leave behind a nasty, sour taste.. But don't know for sure... Thought?

I took a wit recipe, added 2 whole ripe pineapples to secondary and used WB-06, made a great pineapple beer. A friend's GF ensured it didn't last more than 2 months. I would suggest adding something like honey malt to recipe to retain a good amount of sweetness behind.

SKA just produced a Pineapple coconut hefe for Durango's winter festival (Snowdown). The theme this year was "life's a beach" so they went with a beachy themed beer. Another of the breweries in town toasted all of the coconut since they have a eatery and SKA does not. Came out really well.

It was called the Hyper Feirce Gnar Gnar Hefe
