It's been done commercially

I think it'd probably work pretty well in a wheat beer.

I don't know if POM would do it but I suppose it's worth a try.
He'Brew has malts and hops listed. Talks about pomegranates on the bottle but not much info on how they do it. Personally, I found it a little hoppy but that's me. Maybe some of the bitter came from the seeds????

I'm a Saranac fan and I really like this beer (in small doses).

I'd be interested in your results "Da Bone II"

Here's another commercially available Pomegranate beer that I personally think is fantastic.

Just about anything with sugar will ferment. Just about anything edible can be used to flavor beer. Pomegranate sounds like a interesting flavoring for a beer. If you want your fruit flavoring to come through, you need to start with a mild flavored beer. Also the juice should probably be added to the beer during or after fermentation. Do not boil the juice.

That would be an interesting combination. That stuff is really good for you and we usually keep some juice of it around the house. I would be interested to see how it turns out.

Hey I tried to PM you but your mailbox was full.


Saw you were a Saranac fan...Cool to hear, I lived in Utica for a year and came to love that stuff.

Have you found a clone or anything similiar to their Black Forest? I tried emailing them to get more specs, but they wouldn't provide anymore than they had on their website.

Did you brew this beer? I was thinking of adding around32 ounces of pom juice to the pot when its get down to around 180 degrees and cover and set 20 minutes and then chill/ferment as usual. This should avoid the pectin issue and still come up with a tart wheat beer that is not too sweet. Can you post your recipe? I am not sure if I will go belgian or american fruit beer yet or maybe even use a hefe yeast
