pineapple wheat- anybody tried ?
« on: July 20, 2004, 10:01:15 AM »
I want to try a pineapple wheat but it doesnt seem to be a very common additive. Has anybody tried brewing with pineapple and if so what were the results. I havent had very good luck brewing with fruit and dont want to waste a batch. Any comments would be appreciated.

If I remember correctly there is a problem with pineapple. It may have something to do with peptic acid.
If I were you I would do a good search on pineapple and beer and see what you can find.

Papian. The papian in pineapple acts as a denaturizing agent, breaking down the starches until there's nothing left. A lot like Beano beer.
