How do you roast the pecans? Is there a certain temp/time in the oven? Crush after roast or before?

I'm new to using nuts in the mash

I put them all on a cookie sheet in the oven whole on 275 for about 20 minutes. The house will smell awesome. Afterwards, I crushed them as fine as possible and added them to the mash.

What is the point of roasting? I was thinking of adding some pecans to the mash but hadn't considered roasting them.

I let them go until they started to turn black. The pecans add a nice sweetness to the finish in a porter.

I'm intrigued by this recipe, I think this will be brewed this weekend!

So I brewed something similar to this this last weekend. I ended up using 6 oz pecans, and toasted them dark in the oven as you suggested. I also added a cup of molasses. I didn't have the glacier hops so I used some Nugget instead. Otherwise, I used the exact same grain bill.

This was my maiden voyage for my brutus 10 system I just finished, so I'm excited to see how it comes out. Had major activity within four hours...

Did my first taster of this, and it is coming out really nice. You can just get a hint of the pecans at the end. I think in hindsight I might have up'ed it to 12 oz and toasted it even a bit more.

Still a damn fine porter though!

Glad it turned out good. I may actually try adding more Pecans to the next batch of this I make as well.

Dont know how I missed this, the point is to try and eliminate the oils from the pecans as they kill head retention. Dont know how much it helps but it does at least make the house smell fantastic.
