Does anyone have any idea the PPG of mesquite pods?

It varies quite a bit between species, but they supposedly average ~30% sucrose by weight, and extract potential will vary depending on the efficiency of the technique used. I would estimate ~12 ppg, but that's really just an educated guess.

Well, an educated guess is better than I can do, and at least it gives me a ball-park starting point, so thanks! I just ordered 10 pounds of these guys so we'll see what 2 lbs in a 3-gallon batch does as far as gravity goes. I'm really excited to try these...I'm gonna start with a basic (gluten-free) pale ale and also try them in a (gluten-free) porter after that.

Did you order them online? I haven't been able to find a good source for them yet that hasn't already ground them up as flour.

Here's a link to a PDF of the article from Zymurgy magazine that describes the roasting and use process for the pods -

Thanks, sorry I missed that link. Looks like they're offering a better deal than I can currently. I emailed them to see what variety they are shipping currently. The ones I am currently getting are velvet.

Never got a reply from them, I guess they're busy gathering mesquite pods before the monsoon rains get here.

I've read the whole thread a couple of times but I have a question I don't think I've seen. Do I harvest green pods and dry them or do I pick the brown ones. I've got lots of mesquite trees around, some of the pods are green, some are already brown.
