I'm not sure about a sweeter pecan beer, Lazy Mag has hit it on the head IMHO. I couldn't imagine it getting much better. Then again, I might be biased towards the local brewery...

I appreciate the feedback, GreatWhite. I will definitely attempt a clone of the original first and maybe try and find a way to get a bottle . . . or 6

Sorry. I was thinking of the last 15 minutes of the boil. Use it rather as a flavoring in the end.

Halfway through the mash might be interesting too. Talking about all of this is making me want to take a swig out of the secondary and see how it's doing.

Lazy Magnolia is an excellent beer. I'm lucky that two local stores are carrying it.

Here's what I can tell you: Abita does not use our recipe for their Harvest Pecan. Their's uses pecan extract and is completely devoid of any kind of body. Based on that I know about their brewing practices, I wouldn't be surprised if they just took their Amber and added pecan extract to it. That's all I'll say about that.
Didn't mean anything by it, I had just heard it somewhere, glad its not true. Love you're beer.
As for bottling, I drink it by the pitcher when I'm out at the bar anyway

Thanks again all for the kind words regarding Southern Pecan!


In regards to the pecans, I'd recomend mashing them and layering them towards the bottom, so they won't float up on you. 4-8oz for a 5 gallon batch sounds just about perfect.

Keep up the good work!

i was with hammer one when we discovered the pecan, wow, thats really really good beer. and we found cases at mcdades grocery! now, about the roasting, how roasted? time and temp? hammer has a convection oven so it should be easy to avoid burning the pecans but the roasting i would think is an important part of this brew process. or, are they pan roasted?

Taken from Chriso's Scottish 80/- Pecan Ale

Pecans were toasted at 300F for 10 minutes in a single layer, then poured into a paper bag to sit out overnight, hopefully getting some of the oils out of them. Pecans were roasted 10 minutes at 400F till slightly smoking. Poured into another paper bag.
Pecans were finally roasted for 10 more minutes at 350F for about 8 minutes, again, just until slightly smoking.
Between each roast, I used a flat-style crowbar and smashed as many whole nuts as I could in order to expose the maximum amount of surface area.

Looks good. Gravity a touch higher than the OG listed on their site but what's a % of kick between friends I've worked up my own, very similar to yours:

8.5lbs american 2 row
0.75lbs wheat malt
0.75lbs carapils
1lb American crystal 40L
0.25lbs american chocolate
8oz roasted pecans (using method in this thread)
Mash 154 for 60 min
0.5 magnum 30 min
0.5 tetts 15 min
Estimated OG 1.056
SRM 14
IBU 22

I'm a little over on bitterness and under on color. I might alter my hop schedule to closer match hammerone's: do 0.5 at 10 min instead of 15 and another 0.5 oz at flameout.

I'm going to brew it this weekend. Suggestions welcome!
