    Candied Pecan Wheat Beer

    UHOH! i dont know why, but there is a slight sour taste to this brew. Im thinking it has to do with the nuts being in there too long. probably should have racked off them after a week. Im gonna add another .25 of DDME to try and balance this out when i move it to its secondary.

    well im not sure what kind of hop would go good with this, like i think a noble maybe good but i dont want to take away from the pecan aroma. Its gonna be 1 gallon, and i am unsure of the yeast as of right now. its probably gonna need to be a mead yeast cuz thats all i have.

    Candied Pecan Wheat Beer
