Notes

I brewed this one a year ago and let it bottle condition for 6 months. It was a great late summer beer and people really liked it.
The nuts are toasted at 325 degrees then diced. Added to the wort last 15 min in a grain sack. An incredible amount of oil leaches from the nuts. Used 2.5 pounds of Crystal for head retention. When poured the beer is mid brown with a healthy and long lasting beige head. Plenty of lacing in the glass.
