IMO using butter and candy-ing the pecans is a bit unnecessary. Toasting the pecans is a good idea to bring out flavor and drive off some of the oils.

Here is a BYO article about nuts

http://byo.com/stories/item/2530-brewing-gone-nuts

I'm working on some sort of nut brew for the relative near future. A pecan pie beer does seem like a good idea. Im thinking toast the pecans, and use molasses or dark belgian candy sugar to give that rich deep caramelized sugar flavor.

Thanks for the motivation.

I would try to get a few degrees lower than you can currently get. You don't want a bunch of yeast derived flavors interfering with the pecan pie character.

Does the butter and the pecan oil kill the head retention?

Not that I've noticed. I'll take a pic next time I pour one and let you know how long it lasted.

I wouldn't say it actually tasted like pecan pie, but it had a nice nutty character to it that was complimented by some residual sweetness and caramel notes.

I have a pecan pie ale currently in the primary and will be moving it to the secondary this weekend. How long did you have the candied pecans in your secondary? Was it the full 2 weeks?

Thanks for your help.
