Notes

roast pecans for 10 minutes at 350...cool...pat down with paper towels to remove oils...repeat several times

Batch 1 Notes:
Only roasted pecans three times according to instructions above. They seemed to be burning.
OG = 1.058
FG = 1.010
ABV = 6.3%
Significant astringency upon kegging. Mellowed out after 2 weeks, and beer was significantly better tasting. Mouthfeel was not there and pecan flavor and aroma was very subtle. Should add flaked oats for mouthfeel. Add mroe pecans or roast them more?
