I know, I know. But it is for a gift. This weekend for National Homebrew Day I will be brewing my regular 10 gallon Saison recipe but taking some wort out and steeping some pink peppercorns, then putting that liquid in 5 gallons to ferment.
My question is how much peppercorns to use? A tablespoon? 1/2 oz? Should I coursley cruise them of leave them whole? Should I put them in the fermenter or just strain the steeped liquid in?
Ok, that was more than one question. Since I have never used pink peppercorns I appreciate the advice.
Description of pink peppercorns from the Spice Shop:
These Reunion Island pink peppercorns have a fruity, nutty, sweet flavor and are very delicate and light compared to true peppercorns.
