I juiced gallons of pears from my trees to make wine with and have about 2 gallons that I froze to use in a beer. I tasted a beer made by Southern Tier Brewery recently make with apples. Not sure how it is exactly done, but I assume it is done by fermenting on apple slices. I want to try a beer with a gallon of pear juice at the end of the boil. I'll just dump it in.
My bill will most likely be a 2 row with some crystal 10 or 20. I haven't determined the amounts yet. My dilemma is with the hops. There are a couple of choices. I like Calypso and cascade as choices.
1 oz Cascade 60 min
0.5 oz Calypso 20 min
0.5 oz Calypso at flame out
I want to impart a fruity pear flavor and Calypso seems to have that from what I have read.
