I'm doing the Pecan Scottish Ale AG recipe this Saturday, and am not sure if I include the pecans in the mash or the boil. I would assume the mash, but I don't know why

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

I have absolutely no advice to give you other than I think this sounds delicious.

Be sure you bake/roast them. I have heard that the oils from nuts are not good. And to get rid of them you bake them. Read the last post here:

It says to bake them, then let them sit, repeat several times.

My recipe says to bake them 3 times, which is what I'll be doing.
