Default When to add my nuts?

I'm planning to make some beers with added nut flavours such as hazlenut and wondered when to add the nuts. I'm making an infusion by adding some chopped hazlenuts into vodka and I was going to add a drop or two of that into the finished beer.

But what about adding nuts to the boil? Or dry nutting for maximum nut flavour?

Is dry nutting the same as tea-bagging? Can someone clarify?

But in all seriousness, here is a great article from BYO about brewing with nuts.

I laughed when i read the title, died when i read the post...amazing

Anyway if your doing AG which it doesn't sound like you are i would put a bunch in the mash.
If your an extract brewer i would throw them in a hop bag @Flameout and let them steep for 5-10 minutes.

Dont think dry nutting or tea bagging for that matter will get much flavor out.
Nuts are very oily so you most likely will have no head on the finished beer.
You can also use extract IMHO anything but fruit extracts tend to be less "fake"

Syd James is alive and and kicking, or brewing

I take it this'll be the latest, long awaited, "carry on" film.
