it actually tastes more buttery than strong pecan flavor. like peanut brittle, but with pecans is the best way i could describe it. it's a family recipe that i can't divulge due to be releasing it in the future commercially. sorry i can't share with ya cid.

seems many are interested in it. hopefully it's a big seller!

Yeah... it's a beer made in the Koln area of Germany. The name is regulated (like Champagne needs to be from the Champagne region of France), so you don't see much of it outside of Germany. My wife and I enjoyed it on our honeymoon, which was partially spent driving through Germany, so I figured out how to make it when I got home. Now it's a favorite. I think my wife is particularly fond of that beer because it probably reminds her of our honeymoon.

The yeast is a hybrid yeast. It's an ale yeast, but is fermented in the mid-to-high 50's, then the beer needs 6 weeks of cold aging (lagering) before it's really ready to drink.

We just bought another wine kit last night: Cellar Craft Showcase Austrian Gruner-Veltliner. I'll be making this next year as well.

More importantly, the Cellar Craft International Quartet Syrah (Shiraz) kit I have is now out of the box and in the primary fermenter.

Is the idea to keep updating my earlier post on this thread as I add things, or was it a point-in-time kind of thing?
