tonka beans

Post by Scraggy » Fri Sep 15, 2017 1:47 pm

Hi guys.

Loving tonka beans in milk stouts but wondering how you would incorporate the ingredient into the brew. Mash? Boil? Ferment?.... And quantity? Anyone dabbled?

Thanks

You'll get them on eBay.
I believe the FDA have then banned in the US.

Just another try at this... Does anyone have any idea about tonka beans. I have 50g ot them, 100g cocoa nibs and 150g toasted coconut. Thinking about throwing it all in the fermenter after a week and racking off after another week. (Milk stout). Any thoughts? TIA
