I am brewing a brown ale. I was planning on adding whole almonds to the secondary. Does anyone have a good idea of where to start to get a subtle almond flavor, 1lbs, 2lbs?

Sorry if this has been asked a lot i searched but could not find much.

I dont have much experience with this, but I remember reading about adding black walnuts to beer and the oils in them possibly ruining the head retention. you maybe better off adding almond extract if it has less oil in it.
