    Hoping someone may be able to offer some feedback here. I'm attempting to clone this beer made by the Whistler Brewing Co. in Whistler, British Columbia. I feel I have the grain bill and hops fairly close but have never used actual chestnuts in a beer before. I've seen some folks boil them for 60mins, some 10mins, some in primary and or secondary, some even do one or a combination of blanching and/or roasting and milling them for the boil pot.

    Anyone have experience and if so how did it work out for you? How much did you use etc? Below is my recipe less the chestnut component.
