Now, you guys are just being mean. Guess I'll just eat my pickles WiTH my beer. But I will let my wife know that you talked me out of it. So she knows I just didn't give up without a fight.

C'mon now! Just having a little fun! I'd guess most homebrewers have at least conceived strange beers at some time. It's part of the creative process that makes this hobby fun. I've thought of brewing a Halloween candy beer with all the crap candy my kid gets. Skittles, bottle caps, sweet tarts, bit o honey, razzles, starburst... I can just imagine the lovely puke green color!
Didn't mean to be pissy, guess I should have put a smiley on that. I know this is all in fun, my wife just loves dill pickles.i suppose if I want dill pickle flavoring should just drink the juice. :)

LOL! And I don't just use that willy nilly. I actually laughed out loud. You should definitely drink the juice! But don't drink the kool-aid! Be creative! Brew what you want. Just because NO ONE thinks a good dill pickle beer can be done, doesn't mean it can't be done! Just keep this one to a gallon at most for the first try.

I think it's a fine idea. I think you should go with a sour beer, a full on mixed ferment, hence the rodenbach yeast suggestion.

Get a used pickle barrel from the grocery store and ferment in it?
