Hazelnut Extract Source

Postby jay8s » Tue Nov 18, 2008 11:36 pm

Who knows where I can find some? I have been to Pensies (sp) in Maplewood, as well as the new Whole Foods. Any ideas?

Thanks
John

Try the spice shop in St. Charles.

In case you can't find it locally...

Seems like a local homebrew shop would have this though.

Hazelnut

Postby Bob Brews » Wed Nov 19, 2008 10:53 am

I have experimented with a few different types in my beers (and those of you who know me, know I like to experiment).

The best ones I have found are:

Use Frangelica, which is a sweet liqueur with a very strong hazelnut flavor. I have used it at bottling time instead of priming sugar (it has quite a bit of residual sugar) and it kills two birds with one stone.

Contact local homebrew supply stores (or google homebrew liqueur). Many carry a line of extracts used to use to make all different kinds of liqueurs (Baileys, Kahlua, etc). They will have a Frangelica type liqueur extract (you mix will some grain alcohol and cream). Use that bottle of extract straight to flavor your beer.

With both, my suggestion is to start off with half of the amount you think is right and taste. Then add more if needed.

Good luck.

Thanks guys. I am doing a Chocolate Hazelnut Porter that wants 2 oz at bottling. I will start with 1 and work my way up.

Worms does not have any, I might be able to get out to STBeer, but if not I will check the spice shop.

+1

I smelled a hazelnut liqueur last time I was at STL Wine and Beer and both Dave & I agree that it would make an amazing hazelnut porter.

I'll post my Smoked Hazelnut Porter recipe once I brew it.
