Sounds like you're going for a "West Coast" style stout, not a British one. I use 1056 for those, so I'd recommend 001 if you're going White Labs.
Some babybacks that I smoked a week ago. My iphone pic just doesn't do justice. They were tasty though.
Ah Ha! So, the pineapple was added to the boil. Then enzyme was likely denatured. Obviously, there may be some pectic enzyme, but who cares in a wheat! Good to know. How much pineapple did you use?
I have made a couple of coconut beers in my day. If it's in a keg, I think the head retention is a non-issue. The beer is pulled from the bottom while the oils from the coconut float on top. At least that has been my experience.
How is the head retention on the pineapple wheat? Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme the breaks down proteins, is found in pineapple, papaya, and some other fruits. I have heard pineapple additions to beer can really affect head retention and body in a beer. Just curious....
What's wrong with 2013?
Maybe he's triskaidekaphobic
I also heard Atlanta, but Michigan would be good too. At the rate it's growing, they are going to need them at places like the Meadowlands or better yet, Gillette Stadium
