I've never heard of it, but I would think acorns are one of the least desirable nuts out there for human consumption.
Ha! Now that's funny. I don't think I have ever consumed an acorn myself.
...you certainly won't want to chew on an acorn...
Excellent information. I was playing with a couple cups of raw chestnuts this weekend with the intention of doing a similar brown ale. This will definitely be useful.

Could be worse. It's not done yet, so the beer or my taste buds could change.A different procedure I may try some day is to roast the acorns and let them soak in the secondary. That works well for coffee beans, even dark-roasted so they're oily. Obviously it's a very different ingredient.
