Is it possible to do this with macadamia nuts?
Oh, I thought a nut brown ale was supposed to have a sort of nutty taste, but without having any actual nuts in its making?
Likewise, I wouldn't put real bananas in there, but instead let the yeasts make banana esters.
Based on this talk, though, I am going to make a mental note to try this at a later time. Provided I get proficient at yeast washing and harvesting, I'll still have the colonies available to do this crazy experiment any time I like.
I have, however, told myself since my initial brewing class that I was going to just start by getting good at following the recipe for 3-4 batches before doing any mad scientist stuff!
Anybody else want to try? I'd love to hear the report!
