I've been drinking on my clone for a few days, hoping to get some good thoughts. My tasting ability is pretty limited (I knows what I likes) but I did get Southern Pecan, Pecan Harvest From Abita and my Clone. I used crackers to balance my test out between the three.

The clone was slightly sweeter and maltier than the Southern Pecan, but lacked the real ale and "nut" flavor that it held. It's color was also MUCH lighter than expected. I would say though that it beat the Abita variety hands down. Abita just seemed to lack the body and taste compared to the other two.

Again, it was my unscientific tasting with my brain dead taste buds. so ymmv.

I'm trying out Hammer One's Recipe this/next week. I'm going to try a different way of toasting the pecans. Perhaps even throw a few into the boil to see if I can get some aroma from them.

What about using a Sugar Free Roasted Pecan Syrup ?

I don't have access to either original, but my version has been on tap for several weeks and never had much of a nutty flavor to it . . . maybe just the slightest suggestion of a hint of pecan.

8.0 oz Special B (147.5 SRM) 4.65 %
8.0 oz Wheat Malt, Dark (8.0 SRM) 4.65 %
16.00 oz Pecans, Roasted (Mash)
0.50 oz Magnum [11.50 %] (60 min) 17.3 IBU
0.50 oz Tettnang [4.80 %] (15 min) 3.6 IBU
1.00 items Whirlfloc Tablet (Boil 15.0 min)
1 Pkgs SafBrew Ale (DCL Yeast #S-33)

The guys I brew with talked me out of it. Did an Arrogant Tongue Twister IIPA instead (posted). Will try to do this one in the fall....

I have two well producing Pecan trees both of different varieties, and a black walnut as well. I have bazillions pecans but not very many walnuts. I was thinking of a pecan brown ale (may as well add a half pound or two to next weeks brew!), but thanks for this thread I'll try it out sometime.

How do you add that to Brewsmith?

In for later, I'm going to be working on this one soon.

Ok, as a huge fan of the LM Southern Pecan, I'm going to have to try this.... But I haven't stepped in to all grain brewing yet... I'm mostly just brewing extract kits with specialty grains steeped at the beginning just before the boil.

So I used the recipe builder at brewmasters warehouse to come up with an extract version of this recipe.
(http://www.brewmasterswarehouse.com/brew-builder)

Briess 2 Row Caramel 120 - 1 lbs
Briess Sparkling Amber Liquid Extract - 6 lbs
Briess Bavarian Wheat Dry Extract - 1 lbs
Magnum, .5 oz @ 60 mins
Tettnang, .5 oz @ 15 mins
SAFALE S-33


OG - 1.059
FG - 1.015
IBU - 20.6
SRM - 17.62
ABV - 5.76

Also I plan to include the .5 lb of roasted pecans in a bag for the 1/2 of my boil (total 60 min).

I've never done this sort of thing, so any feedback or advice is certainly welcomed. Does it look like I'm on the right path? Or have I missed something obvious?

Thanks!

Reason: typo
