Hazelnut Extract
« on: June 08, 2012, 06:10:19 AM »
Has anybody found a hazelnut extract that tastes authentic or something that imparts such flavors?  I haven't had good luck with any of the fruit or nut extracts.  I'd like to add that flavor to a brown porter to give as a gift.

Have you tried making your own?  Maybe infuse some vodka with hazelnuts.

I don't remember the brand name, but I like the one Whole Foods sells.  Used it to make a hazelnut brown that placed second in a local competition.  My advice is to use a light hand.

My girlfriend used the extract that came in the Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar kit. I'm assuming it was BrewCraft. I think she only used about half of the 2oz. bottle. It came out really nice.
Thank you BEER!

Thanks.  I like Rogue's Hazelnut Brown and would like to bring a similar flavor to this beer.
