  • Chestnut

    I would like to try and make a chestnut beer. There are a multitude of options for the nut itself. I would like to mash them but need to avoid the lipid content. Would anyone have advice on % grist, type of product, tea vs. whole nuts (no shell)? Thanks

    Try to get ahold of the folks at Urban Chestnut Brewing Company in St. Louis. They brew a beer with milled chestnuts in the mash.

      Chestnut beer

      I made a chestnut beer and I put roasted, milled chestnuts and chestnut flour in the mash and Whole roasted chestnuts in the boil. The beer had a nice nuttty flavor (won a bronze at GABF for specialty ale this year). The hardest thing is finding them. Good luck
